Paul E. Saint Paul, MN

Subjects Taught

Blues Guitar, Composition, Country Guitar, Ear Training, Flamenco Guitar, Guitar, Mariachi, Music Recording, Music Theory, Songwriting, Ukulele

About Me

Guitar teacher, Musicologist, performer and over-all happy guy, I simply love living a musical life! It's wonderful being a positive force in my students exploration of music, and I feel like I learn just as much from them, as they do from me . I studied musicology all over the world, completing my education in Amsterdam with a focus on world music and composition. My most loved music genres are the same ones that happen to be my specialties: Blues, Rock, Classical, Metal, and Flamenco. Yes, Metal AND Flamenco!!!

Besides teaching, I am a Blakhart-guitars endorsed artist with the heavy-metal band "We are Legion". We are currently finishing a new album to be released spring 2013, while I work to finish my third solo album, which will be a collection of Flamenco pieces I composed. Should be fun!

Thanks for taking a moment to stop by and read! I hope to hear from you soon! -Paul
