Young Phillip’s guests include a fellow Javacya student and several award-winning artists:


Phillip Rumlin-Bond is an exceptional 13-year-old music student who aspires to become a professional classical musician. After interviewing Phillip, when he was age 11, Brian Dekel, editor of the Havana Herald, described the budding advancing violinist as “precocious.” Mr. Dekel consistently keeps Gadsden County abreast of the happenings of the Gadsden County resident. Dr. Julian White, the former Chairperson of the Florida A & M University Department of Music, says that Phillip is an “extremely talented young man with a bright future.” Phillip began his studies at age 7 with violinist, Patrice Floyd, and continues training with her at the Javacya Arts Conservatory. In just five short years, Phillip became the concertmaster of the Javacya Elite Chamber Orchestra. As a student at Javacya, Phillip has experienced additional training at college-preparatory institutes such as at the Interlochen Center for the Arts Summer Music Camp (Michigan), and Four Strings Academy (Boston). Most recently, he received coaching in a master class with renowned violinist Rachel Barton Pine and Australian cellist, Amber Van Dexter. He is a disciplined violinist who enjoys both preparation and performance. Recently, Phillip willingly shared his Javacya concertmaster position with Sphinx Competition Laureate, Mariana Green-Hill, founder of Boston’s Four String Academy for a 2020 premiere performance. For this memorable occasion, he and award-winning violinist Mariana Green Hill, jointly led the Javacya Elite Chamber Orchestra as the group accompanied Rachel Parton Pine on February 21, 2020, for the Arts-In-The-Heart concert series Phillip received the coveted Javacya Arts Conservatory “Director’s Nod Award, and rating of ‘Superior’ at All-District and All-County public school festivals. Phillip is also one of the leaders of his school orchestra, where he plays both violin and viola. Whether in person or via Zoom, Phillip’s 2020 summer studies include attending the Javacya Arts Summer Music Camp and returning to the Interlochen Summer Arts Music Academy. In addition to his musical accomplishments, young Phillip is an excellent gifted student at Deerlake Middle School, where he excels in mathematics, writing, and history. He has been a part of the Gifted Program since first grade. Recognized for providing students the opportunity to perform many genres of music, Javacya provides students a glimpse into a future life in the world of professional music. To expand this platform, Patrice Floyd, founder, and director, has opened music conservatories in South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida. “Javacya has mentored hundreds of children, and many fine students have become professional musicians,” says Floyd. “Our students and orchestra members are always striving for excellence. We are also excited to enter our fourth season (2020-21) as the founder of the Arts-in-the-Heart concert series. The platform provides additional opportunities for students to accompany the Rachel Barton Pine’, Darryl Tookes, The Mad Violinist, Scotty Barnhart, and the Duo Palomo’s of this world.” Additionally, our mentoring program allows students to sit next to professionals in the orchestra, which exponentially contributes to their rapid development and national success.
