Phil Timberlake

Singer, Actor, Voice Trainer
Lives in Chicago, USA
Roy Hart Voice Teacher since 2013

Voice work is a personal journey. When pursued with curiosity and delight, a vibrant and dynamic vocal expression is available to everyone. I aim to release joy, creativity, and passion through the voice and into the world. My goal as a teacher is to approach each student with care, and treat each one as an individual. Through deep listening, I encourage the profound possibilities in each person’s unique voice.
