    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.

    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.

About this pro

I take a physiological approach to singing... after all it is a physical endeavor. The voice or larynx, despite all its complexities, is just another set of muscles that can be trained to reach its fullest potential. The method that I teach, “The Franco/Italian Bel Canto Method” has been taught in Europe for more than 200 years and has produced the world’s greatest classical singers. Now having said that let me assure you studying this method doesn’t mean that you have to become a classical singer. The techniques used are designed to strengthen and improve the quality of the human voice and can be applied to any genre whether your goal is “Broadway” “American Idol” or just to improve your voice for you own personal satisfaction. The method also addresses all things associated with singing, such as breathing and breath control. I have been singing and teaching for over 30 years both professionally and for my own enjoyment. Singing is my passion, it is what I do. I have found that teaching someone to sing is perhaps one of the most rewarding things I do.

    Q & A

    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I keep up with current trends through the professional organizations I belong to. In addition to this I am continuously researching and studying on my own.
    • How did you get started doing this type of work?
      I was very fortunate to have as my teacher, someone who believed in passing on his knowledge and understanding of what it takes to be a great singer. Little did I know at the time but he was training me to pass on his legacy and it has been my great honor to do so. Thank you Mr. Tate!
