I have a fluid teaching approach based on my REAL LIFE EXPERIENCE with an emphasis on improving technique, musicianship and a “truth is love approach” to ensure musical improvement within the first two weeks of lessons! I sincerely believe creating music should be a joyful & fulfilling experience and one that will be a positive change in someone’s life (as it has been for mine). I teach all genres of music on multiple instruments and specialize in audition preparation, real-life gig preparation and musical mastery. I want my students to reach their musical potential and aspirations, while having a good time doing something that they love.

I am a GRAMMY Nominated educator, trumpeter, guitarist, bassist, pianist, singer/songwriter, composer/arranger, drummer and recording artist. I graduated from University of Indianapolis with a Bachelor’s of Arts with a concentration in Jazz Studies and the University of Cincinnati College Conservat

Wade is super personal and full of information! I learned a lot in my first lesson and he was very easy and fun to talk to. I'm excited to learn more from Wade! :)

Wade is the rare combination of a talented accomplished musician with the ability to communication with the students. He continues to perform and study with experts in the music field. I was truly impressed with how he built relationships with the students. It is obvious that he cares about each individual and wants what is best for him/her.

"Paul is a wonderful teacher for students who are just beginning to play. From the start he talked with my son about the types of music he liked and what specific songs he wanted to learn. He is totally excited about it and practices every day. He even formed a guitar club at his high school and goes to school early to play with his friends. This is the first activity that my son has consistently enjoyed and looks forward to each week. Paul thanks for your patience, your enthusiasm and your willingness to customize lessons to fit your students interests.. you are awesome!"

"I tried taking lessons about two years ago from another instructor and I took one and never went back. I cannot say enough about Alex. He is an excellent instructor! I am a Veteran and have issues with learning new concepts, etc. Alex is able to work with me and is very kind and respectful. He definitely hands up is the best I have ever worked with including when I played in the high school band many years ago! I highly recommend him if you are looking to expand your horizons or just getting started again like me!"

"Great Patience

I was a complete beginer and couldn't read a single note. Al showed great patience form day one when i came in with a broken string. Never once in all of my lessons did he hesitate to repeat, redemonstrate, or write it out. He is your choice if this is what you need in an instructor."
