We were fortunate to have Miles Phillips conduct a workshop entitled ‘Acting the Song.’ He worked with ten students over a three hour period and the results were just wonderful. He set up a very relaxed environment where the students could work with focus and ease, and he found ways to interact with each student in unique ways that helped each one make incredible progress.
I was very impressed with the breadth of musical literature that Miles has at his fingertips. No matter what genre of music the student had prepared, Miles was able to give suggestions based on character and specifics of the material that addressed depth, honesty and individual interpretation.
I am happy to recommend Miles in this capacity. In fact he is such a multi-talented artist that I would imagine that any workshop or class he taught would be greatly beneficial to your students.
