Paul has been very patient and wonderful with my 6 year old son who has just started lessons.
Lorenzo S.
My first lesson was great. Mr. Paul was very patient and judged my skill level before making a lesson plan. Initially I was nervous, because I have never taken lessons before, but that quickly went away. I can definitely tell that he knows his stuff when it comes to teaching. He a great teacher and conversationalist.
Kennedy B.
Paul was very pleasant. He thoroughly explained things to my daughter in a manner that she could understand. He listened to her play and they also played together.

This was her first flute lesson with Paul, but she's already looking forward to the next lesson.

My daughter first lesson was great, Lesley was very attentive and supportive. I believe that this will be a great experience!
Jenny R.
Kesley is absolutely amazing! She is so patient and creative. My daughter struggled so much with reading. Now she is a confident reader and is near the top of her class in both reading and math. Additionally, my daughter struggled with some behavior problems. Kesley was firm but kind and helped her behave not only during tutoring session, but also in school.

We are also foster parents with kids of all ages coming and going all the time. Kesley has worked with almost all of them and helped them get caught up in school. If there was something higher than 5 stars, I would give it to Kesley. You could not find a better tutor.

"My lessons with Laurel have been fantastic! She's very patient & knows exactly how to make everything make sense & how to break things down in order give proper analysis in whatever she teaches from piano to singing to basic music theory. She was able to answer any questions I had in full detail. She's a very warm & welcoming person that loves to teach & can do so very well. I highly recommend her as an instructor. She is with out a doubt, a genius of her craft."
