Philip was great...he showed me aspects of my singing which were exactly what I wanted and was a great addition to my previous teachers. In his lessons, I learned how to manipulate my voice to do more of a pop type of music and also had a pretty embarassing karaoke night which I'm glad I tried.

Mother Mr. Phil is an excellent instructor! He is both patient as well as creative with our 4 year old who has a short attention span. We would recommend Mr. Phil to anyone, our son has really learned a lot under Mr. Phil's direction.
