Introduction: With a command of biomechanics and acoustics of vocal production I aim to help students along a path toward functional, effortless and lasting technique. "Technique" can sound scary but I love helping students understand their voice so that they can clearly communicate as an artist!
Here's my bio:
Philip Skinner has completed extensive training in vocal pedagogy and vocology at New York University with NYU Langone Medical Center and remains active as a flexible performer of classical, CCM and theater music. He has performed at such venues as Radio City Music Hall, The Duplex Cabaret Theater and Gotham Hall in New York City as well as being a collaborator and back up vocalist for Grammy nominated artist Chandrika Tandon. Some of his favorite music theater roles include Insomina (Dan) at the Workshop Theater, A Funny Thing Happened…(Hysterium) for LOOK musical theater, Mary Poppins (Von Hussler and dance ensemble) for Reagle Music Theater and The Drowsy Chaperone (Robert Martin). He has served as a cantor at Church of the Holy Innocents in midtown Manhattan and is experienced in singing chant and liturgical music. In addition to his private studio he has taught at such places as NYU as adjunct professor of voice, Professional Youth Theater and Musical Arts Center of San Antonio. He currently serves remotely as a Singing Voice Specialist for the University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio Voice Center and other area otolaryngologists and SLPs.
