Philip co-founded the The HATCH Ostinato Project, a global platform for creatives, educators, and students to grow and empower future leaders. The initiative was born from the HATCH Experience in Big Sky, Montana that empowers the next generation of musicians to find their voice through composition and production.
The HATCH Ostinato Project was formed to empower students to realize that they can compose music by removing inhibitive barriers common to the underserved music classroom, enabling them to experience original, fully realized sounds. The program matches composers and industry musicians with schools and music classes to allow for collaboration on music creation, resulting in professional music production.
The music the kids and composers create together is made into CDs, released on music stores online, and may also be licensed for commercial use. 100% of the revenue generated through CD sales goes directly back into the music program that originated the music and the licensing revenue serves to support the entire HATCH Ostinato Project program. Beyond providing critical support for arts education, the HATCH Ostinato Project engages students in creative thinking and problem solving at a critical age, improving their self-confidence and excitement for their education.
Put simply, the HATCH Ostinato Project enables kids at a critical age to find their voice.
