I have had the pleasure of working with Philip as a fellow arts educator in addition to being one of his voice students. Throughout voice lessons, Philip’s flexibility and desire for his students’ success makes him always ready to work on a new last-minute audition cut and provide technique and tips to nail any audition piece. He works hard to expand vocal range, perfect phrasing, and most importantly – create a truly unique performance of any song.
Perhaps most notable is his passion for teaching and providing personalized attention to each one of his students. Having known him for over a decade now, I admire his dedication to achieving the best vocal quality and strongest musicianship from all of his students. I aspire to have his poise and patience when working with large groups of students of all ages – whether in area high school musical productions or classes and camps at COCA St. Louis.
