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.

Working together, we can improve your clarinet playing week by week. I am flexible in repertoire, meaning that if a student has pieces he or she wishes to play, we will make it a goal to achieve those pieces so that playing the clarinet is an enjoyable experience for each student.

I enjoy working on fundamentals and utilizing performance psychology practices to improve the learning outcomes for the students.

I have experience in teaching every level of student from beginning to advanced. I am a big believer in teaching the fundamentals. I spend much time working on tone and technique with my students as this leads to much success when it comes to specializing in both classical and jazz playing. I give students much freedom as to what they want to work on as this allows students to be excited about taking lessons. After all, music is supposed to be fun!

"Mary was wonderful. I was apprehensive about my total ignorance of the instrument and my physical capacity to perform a task that involve the lungs. Since I am an old old lady this was a little challenging not only for me as a student, but also for a teacher. Experienced Mary knew how to inspire in me confidence. Her clear explanations gave me knowledge I needed, and little by little I became making the sounds that were so incredible amazing. Mary has a natural sweetness, a serenity that easily transmits determination, courage and faith. What a marvelous choice I made picking her as my instructor. I am optimist that one day I will play some of my favorites songs of my past happy days."
