Dan Hartman's Schoolhouse Studio
In the early ‘80’s Phil worked at Dan Hartman’s Schoolhouse recording studio, built inside a 1760’s-era boy’s school in Connecticut. The Schoolhouse was renowned for its excellent, natural acoustics, as well as its relaxed atmosphere that allowed musicians to relax and capture a natural performance. Dan also kept his rates as low as possible, to allow beginning musicians the chance to make affordable recordings.
Phil worked on the Schoolhouse’s piano for several performers during that time, including Neil Sedaka, Muddy Waters, Edgar Winter, and .38 Special. He is noted in the credits of Dan’s 1981 album It Hurts To Be In Love, which includes Letter in a Song, and the title track.
