As a young female, I was apprehensive about choosing a male teacher that teaches in his home. However, Paul has been professional and I have not had any concerns since meeting him and working with him. He is a well-planned, experienced teacher who artfully progresses students from week to week in a manner that is constructive and fun. In only 5 weeks I have learned more about playing guitar and guitar theory than I would have thought. He has been attentive to my goals and it is precisely the experience that I pay for.

I've been with Paul for about 3-4 months. I came to him having a minor in music and a lot of guitar under my belt, but frustrated with my consistency. I did a check in on my abilities recently and I'm able to play pretty much any song in the real book now after 1 or 2 tries. This is great, especially because I don't feel like I'm working that hard. So yeah he's great. I recommend him.

Emily is a great teacher. This is my son's first time playing guitar and he has gotten really good. She teaches him music theory too. And, he gets to play all kinds of songs including classical.

Miss Brown is an awesome piano and guitar teacher. When I retired a few years ago I took piano with her. Now she's teaching me how to play guitar. Since I know how to play piano, it's so much easier to learn guitar. She's teaching me how to play in a band too. We jam together me playing guitar and she plays piano. Miss Brown makes everything easy to learn. I'm having so much fun learning to play music!

I can show you the basics of guitar from tuning to your first chords. My speciality is in rhythm as I am a drum player first. Rhythm is so important to playing the guitar. I also have a strong foundation in the chord and scale theory as well as jazz harmony.
