In the year 1946 Philippa made a debut in the bizarre double role of composer and performer and competed in several national composition contests, and she performed throughout America. All of this helped her to cope with the aftermath of reading the scrapbooks and superficially recover from her depression. Her double debut happened at Lewisohn Stadium and many music critics, like Robert Hague, were amazed with her performance. She performed “Rumplestiltskin” twice, first at Carnegie Hall and second during the annual Festival of Music and Art at Fisk University. Philippa was also invited to become a junior advisory editor for Calling All Girls, having herself a social life. Yet, the Schuylers during this time were experiencing financial difficulties as a result of the rising cost of Philippa's training. In addition her mother was also living beyond her means with a new gaudy lifestyle.
