Piano Lessons (for children or teenagers)
Phil has been wonder and patient while teaching piano to our 5 year old energetic son. My son has really responded and enjoys practicing and going to class.

Singing Lessons (for adults)
I've only been working with Phil for a few weeks, but I can already tell a difference in both range and the strength of my voice. I didn't pursue voice lessons sooner because I thought any professional would be frustrated by my musical ignorance, but Phil has been great at meeting me where I am. I love that I leave the lessons with something to work on. I'll update this review if anything changes, but if the lessons are more of the same, I'm very confident in my 5 star rating.

Loving it so far, only one month in and can see quite an improvement in my vocals as well as learning a few basic chords on guitar, I'm one lesson away from learning to play my first song. Phillip and Drew are excellent and patient instructors!!!

I just spoke with Phillip Wolcott. He sounds like just the person I need to help me get past some of the vocal issues I'm experiencing. I'm looking forward to it!
I've been taking lessons with Phil for nearly a year and I am so happy with the results I'm hearing in my voice. My voice before taking lessons with Phil was weak and pitiful, however, the method Phil uses is extremely effective and does magic for your voice. He takes a more physical approach to getting your voice strong and robust, you have to be committed to doing the vocal exercise cd's he gives you everyday but it is so worth it.This guy knows what he is doing and knows how to get the voice in good shape. He is a cool guy too and doesn't bore you to death during the lesson, his dry sense of humor makes the lessons fun and enjoyable. I highly recommend Phil to anyone who is serious about a professional career in singing, you won't find a better teacher in Texas than Phil, I guarantee it.
Phil is a fantastic piano teacher for my son! He clearly adapts to the individual personality of each student. He also pushes my son to do better, without taking away the fun of learning. I have never gotten a groan about going to a piano lesson - my kiddo grabs his music and jumps in the car every time!
I have been taking voice lessons with Phil for more than one year and I have been very pleased with the results that I have realized from this training. I have had professional voice lessons before with other instructors but I did not see such remarkable change and improvement in my voice as I have experienced with Phil's instruction. The method that he teaches is very effective. I saw improvement almost immediately and continue to see improvement ongoing. He is by far the best voice instructor I have encountered.Phil is very professional in every way. He is also very positive and very easy to work with. I recommend him without reservation to anyone who wishes to see a remarkable transformation of their voice.
Our daughters have been working with Phil for the past 7 months, one with voice and the other with piano, and WOW! The progress they have made is remarkable. We could not be more pleased.
Phil's extensive knowledge and friendly approach are a rare combination. The girls have learned so much and look forward to their lessons each week. Phil covers mechanics, musicality, theory, physiology...everything! We are really looking forward to seeing the growth continue as we continue working with him.
Our son had been taking piano lessons for 2 years prior to taking lessons with Phil. He has learned more in this past year than in the two previous years combined. Our son enjoys Phil's sense of humor and teaching style. We are looking forward to another great year! Thank you Phil

My wife and I sing with several groups, each having different vocal styles and performance objectives. Phil's training is equally applicable to all. He definitely helps us get more out of ourselves than we would on our own. And he does it with excellent explanations about "why" we're doing this or that exercise. That helps us tote his training to our various vocal settings. Sherrill has been surprised to have moved from Alto to Soprano, and I have effectively added 3 - 5 notes to my once-bass, now bass-baritone range. We look forward to his sessions in our home, for the skills he brings and shares, and for his good humor.
I had no idea what I was getting into. Seriously.. I went to Phil expecting to learn the same old stuff any voice coach will teach you.. most of which can be found on youtube. But I was pleasantly surprised. Phil understands singing on a level that just blows my mind. But he doesn't overwhelm you with his knowledge, he simply meets you where you are. So if you are serious about singing or even just a beginner, I can't imagine finding a more qualified & effective teacher in the Dallas area.
I am a 65 year old woman with a passion for learning to play the Piano.
I really can say nothing but good things about my beginning music training from Philip. I have tried several times to take music from other teachers. Never been successful. I can't put my finger on it now except Phil knows just how to teach to keep a student interested. He comes to my home and that is a real plus. I am enjoying learning how to play a piano. Thanks Phil
