About Paul K.

Good day. A little about me. I have been a Professional Musician and Educator for over 35 years. I teach drum and percussion students of all ages and experience levels. I have a Bachelors of Music degree. I studied with the world renowned Fred Gruber for 3 years as well. I was a signed artist as a member of The Magic Grass on Decca Records at 23 years old. That lead to my doing demo and studio recording for many recognized artists and television shows. I have been honored to have taught over 450+ students in my career. Just one of the lessons you will learn from me is how to enjoy playing drums!

I teach out of my recording studio and online now doing approximately 35 lessons per week in Houston. In my studio, I teach the drum part to songs my students want to learn; record and engineer those songs for the student providing them with a professional CD and MP3 file as their accomplishment to share with family and friends. On-line we do a similar process, all through the luxury of technology.

I have many great reviews and references I can share with you if you choose me today. You will not be disappointed.
