"Ruth Phillips... has been through a deep personal journey into the nature of the psychology - one might say spirituality - of performance. As a result of this journey with her students and her study of Indian and other musical disciplines she now has a highly valuable lesson to offer to all who approach her; a lesson much needed in the current climate, and to my knowledge, a unique one."

Jonathan Harvey (MA, Ph.D, D.MUS, FRCM), composer.
