Phylliss Bailey Brooks

Music Specialist

Phylliss Bailey Brooks, a native of Los Angeles realized her passion when her wise mother enrolled her in USC’s prestigious Children’s Institute For The Performing Arts at the tender age of seven. There she was introduced to classical studies of piano, voice, theatre and dance. She went on to study at The Inner City Cultural Center (which she eventually became a teaching artist), and The Beverly Hills Playhouse. Phylliss has received two Hollywood NAACP Theatre awards, as well as three Los Angeles Dramalogue awards for theatre. She is presently the Vocal Director/Arranger and member of the popular all women, international drumming and vocal group “ADAAWE.” As a performance coach she is a freelance acting/dialogue and vocal coach with several private students preparing for their turn on such talent based shows as “American Idol” and “The Voice.” She also day plays, coaching the youngest cast members on tv shows like ABC’s hit series, “Black-ish.” Phylliss is proud to lend her talents to The Advot Project, a community outreach organization with programing designed to transfer the lives of our youth through the power of the performing arts and Dream A World, Inc., in which she serves as a teaching artist for kindergarten and first graders for underserved communities in the public school systems. This multi-talented artist is thrilled to live her life working as she was designed to do!
