Phil and His Guitar
I grew up in a small town in South Dakota called Brookings.
When I was 12, I began learning how to play guitar. I liked
it right away, and would practice for hours and hours.
A few years later, I started writing my own songs. One of
the first songs I wrote was called The Freeze Rock.
In the freeze, you dance around, move around, and when the
music stops, you freeze in a funny, silly way.

The Freeze Rock and other fun action
As I grew older, kids from my neighborhood would gather on my front
porch to hear me sing and play guitar. They especially liked
songs that had action, like the freeze, the limbo, and the chicken
I thought playing guitar for kids was so cool that I decided to
make it my career, and now I perform in schools all across the United
States and around the world.
Here are some of the great places I’ve performed for kids
Through music, I’ve made friends in many different places.
I believe that when people get to know each other, the world
becomes a more generous and peaceful place to live.
Be cool. Have fun. And see you at the show.
