Performing as a soloist Phil Goldenberg has played in numerous festivals and recital halls across the United States. Most recently, Mr. Goldenberg won the first prize - Peter Segal Award in the 2018 Philadelphia Classical Guitar Competition. Judges remarked on his "considerable sense of drama and varied color and dynamic range," as well as his sense of "pleasing calm, juxtaposed by moments of technical brilliance."

At that festival he gave solo concerts, workshops and collaborated with top musicians across all genres.

After studying with Joseph Mayes, famed student of Andres Segovia, and graduating from Rowan University with a Bachelor of Music in guitar performance, Mr. Goldenberg went on to receive a Masters in guitar performance with honors from the Cleveland Institute of Music studying with Grammy winner Jason Vieaux.
