Dr. George Weimer, Professor of Music at the University of Indianapolis, conducted extensive interviews with Bob Phillips to capture some of his ideas, experiences and philosophies about music education and life in general.  Rough recordings of the original background interviews surfaced in recent years.  While the discussion is largely academic, we believe the discussion captures the essence of what the Phillips Music Guild is trying to accomplish.  These sound clips are best played over a high-speed network connection.
