We had a ball…” - David Liebman.“Phil Robson is a disturbingly good jazz guitar player!” - Wayne Krantz"Phil Robson has long been regarded as one of the UK's finest jazz guitarists, and has compiled a performance and teaching CV that speaks for itself. He and I have worked together examining undergraduate jazz guitar students on a number of occasions - Phil's comments are always full of insight and go right to heart of what someone needs to do in order to develop their playing. I'm honoured that I'm going to be teaching alongside him on Mike's Master Classes and I strongly recommend his classes to all our customers." - Jamie Taylor
