Philippa began her singing and composition classes during the summer of 1937 at the Covenant School, at this time she also had her first normal interaction with other children her own age. She also attended Durlach and Emerson, a school for gifted children, for several afternoons from the first quarter of 1938. But when Philippa turned seven, the law required her to enrol in education full time, Josephine and George let her decide on which school she preferred to go to and she chose the Convent's Annunciation School. However, her musical education was somehow problematic, because Josephine constantly wanted the best for her daughter, thus making almost everyone out to be not qualified for her standards. And in early July, she received an invitation from the legendary Leopold Godowski, asking for Philippa to play for him. But the visit was a disaster when Josephine scolded Philippa, who refused to stop playing when Godowski's lawyer arrived.
