Phil Circle Phil Circle may be a critically acclaimed local songwriter, but he's also known as a well respected music coach. For 25 years, he's been working with everyone from absolute beginners to working professionals. He's developed a mindset approach to teaching that works his students through not only the technical issues at hand, but the philosophical aspects of playing music at a professional level. "One key ingredient to continuing playing throughout one's life," says Circle, "is sharing your work with a live audience. Otherwise, you're going to stagnate.

Come see several accomplished students of Phil Circle share their talents as vocalists, guitarists, and even songwriters. Each adult student will play 2-3 songs, either solo or with Phil's accompaniment. At the end of the evening, everyone usually gets up for one big regatta. 


"What makes Circle one of the few ‘professional indie musicians’ is not only his tenacity, but his inherent fluidity with performing, and a zen-like understanding of what it means to be a songwriter."  -Hannah Frank, Chicago Music Guide
