Mr. Phill Eason
I'm Phill Eason, Instrumental Music Teacher at Nursery Road Elementary-Arts Magnet. I'm a lifelong musician, but left full-time music to enter the ministry after having my two children. I came back to teaching music through the PACE alternative teaching certification program here in South Carolina. I spent years playing professional drums touring in Charleston's "Sol Driven Train" and studied Jazz at College of Charleston before having children and entering the ministry until recently. I have served churches, hospitals, and prisons as a pastor, but always carried the thread of music through my professional journey. I specialize in drumset, keyboards, and composition, and also teach beginning guitar and ukulele at NRES-AM.
I have a beautiful wife and two children that support my love for music in this new setting. As a hobby, I am the co-creator of "WOLF", an elaborate landscaping/golf hobby that falls into the category of "Urban Golf", which is highly popular in Europe. I continue to write musicals and songs for those I love, and I find time to play with other musicians at churches and side gigs. The best part of teaching elementary music has been learning new instruments and having this wonderful music studio to play in (like a kid) everyday. I'm truly blessed.
