"I was in town for just a few days for some artist development meetings and took a private guitar lesson. Paul did an excellent job in assessing my needs and skills prior to the lesson in order to be able to cover as much as possible while I was there. He was very patient and passionate and I could tell he really enjoys music and teaching. I now have some new angles to approach guitar and a new look at theory which is exactly what I was needing to take my playing to the next level. I would recommend Paul to guitar players of all skills and levels and definitely plan on looking him up when I'm back in Nashville.
"I started taking Voice lessons with Paul based on a referral. For years I have been trying to find someone that cares about my musical journey and really takes the time to analyze my goals and successes. Paul is that guy. I can't say enough good things about him. Paul takes the time to understand, and unlike most voice teachers he has the patience to do so. I never feel rushed and feel like I get MORE than my money's worth every single time. You owe it to your love of music to call Paul for a consultation. "
"I have been an almost 6-year long student of Paul's, and I have learned everything I know about music, the music business, recording, playing guitar, music theory, vocal practice etc.. from him. Without Paul I would not be the musician I am today."
"Paul's knowledge of music theory is so comprehensive that I can't imagine I could get a better education in a college music degree program. His real genius is that he can impart this knowledge in a way perfectly tailored to his student's level of ability and interests. I have been a student of Paul's for over five years. He very much gets to know his students on an individual level and really cares about fueling their passion for music. He is a true gem. "
"I have known Paul for about 10 years now. I met him soon after I moved to Nashville, and immediately stated taking guitar lessons from him. He coached me through guitar, songwriting and most recently piano. I have taken lessons from several other instructors and nobody has come close to being as professional and knowledgeable as Paul. He's very affordable, but don't let that fool you. This guy should be charging much more for the instruction he will give you in theory, knowledge and teaching you what YOU want to learn. I have recommended him to several people in Nashville, and I recommend if you are reading this you check him out!"
