- Establish comfortable breath support – Enrich your tone – Increase your range – Enhance your dynamic control – Increase your stylistic diversity – Increase vocal stamina – Amplify your stage presence – Address your vocal health – Improve your pitch accuracy
“Philip carefully balances the personal enjoyment of singing with technical development.” – Nicholas Tredea, Dancer, Kirribilli

Unless you are an established professional singer with an extensive performance⁄recording history, a practical assessment is recommended. A 30 minute vocal assessment will help to identify your strengths and weaknesses, like breath control, pitch accuracy, resonance and overall vocal health. The fee is $45.

PHILIP DE VILLIERS (B.A. Honours Live Performance, AFDA)
During his 20 years of teaching Philip has taught hundreds of students privately and lectured at the most sought-after academic institutions. Having obtained his Honours Degree in Live Performance from AFDA, South Africa’s renowned film and live performance school, he relocated to Australia in 2014. In 2015 he taught piano and coached the vocal ensemble at Marist College in Pagewood and also served as an external examiner at AIM (The Australian Institute of Music) for their final year Composition program. In the same year he featured as a singer-pianist in Baz & Bond, a production that celebrated the songs from Baz Luhrman and James Bond movies.
Since 2007, Philip has worked closely with Universal Music to develop artists who have become successful on the global circuit. His songwriting has garnered him two awards, and his recorded work has been in circulation on radio and television since 2006. (Listen to his soulful voice and emotive songs at https://soundcloud.com/philip-de-villiers-1).
In 2009, Philip co-wrote a song that was featured in the motion picture, Mary & Martha starring Hillary Swank, and produced a feature song in 2013 for the international blockbuster Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom.
