Philip Jay's Reviews

Having been looking for a while for a pianist to play at our wedding, a friend recommended Philip. We could not have been happier, Philip was a pleasure to work with and completely professional when planning our day and how his music would play a part in it. Philip's music was wonderful and became a talking point, with many guests saying how amazing it was.

have had the honor and pleasure to work with Philip in the creation of Crystal Movement Dance Collective from Jan 2015- July 2017. Philip produced music for three different dance productions that were choreographed and produced by Ayla Modeste. Philip's dedication to the creation of all three projects was very admirable. He put in many hours of producing and refining while receiving feedback to complete three 10-15 minute productions in a short amount of time. Philip's ability to adapt his style and use his musical training to guide our production was memorable by the performers and audience members. On behalf of Crystal Movement, it would be an honour to have Philip work with us again. I highly recommend Philip's expertise to any group that wished to utilize music and other multi-disciplinary forms.
