Our vision is that the study, performance, and appreciation of music can be a vital force in the community. The study of music develops logical, mathematical, and social skills. The performance of music develops planning, respect, and teamwork while creating enjoyment for the listening public. These opportunities were given to first-generation members of the Guild by the personal efforts of Robert Phillips, and we are now passing these opportunities on to future generations.

The mission of the Phillips Music Guild of Indianapolis is to be a catalyst, bringing together resources to create, support or amplify the study and performance of music in the Central Indiana area, and to encourage similar activities beyond our direct reach. We add value by leveraging our relationships in the musician community, our organization, planning and communication resources and our access to funding.
