Dr. Phillipa Burgess
Violin, Piano, Recorder Teacher
Phillipa Edith Burgess
My studio is located just north of Clifton and is within easy proximity to students located in the Springfield, Xenia, Yellow Springs, Cedarville, Fairborn, and Jamestown areas.
I have instructed privately for over fifteen years and know that all students, no matter what their age, thrive when their efforts are met with respect, encouragement, and gentle patience. I provide a learning environment that combines elements of musical play to reinforce the skills and musicianship being instructed, so that multiple learning strategies can be incorporated into the instructional process.
I hold a Bachelor of Music Education from the NSW State Conservatorium of Music in Sydney, Australia, a Master of Music in Choral Conducting from California State University, Long Beach, CA, and a Ph.D. in Musicology from the University of Kentucky, Lexington, KY.
In addition to teaching, I have managed and acted in musical theatre productions that specialize in historical performance practice, educational entertainment, costume design, and performance research. I also instruct workshops on dance, costume construction, and historical musical performance techniques.
