*** Lesson Details ***
My goal as a teacher is to make students successful in their goals. I work with a variety of people; some of them study music for personal enjoyment and others for their musical career. Everyone responds differently to music, that is why I prepare special lessons for each student. It is important that my students enjoy what they are playing and for that reason I have a variety of repertoire that they can choose from.
From a lot of experience with beginner piano students, both young and adults, I have been able to find a regimen of piano teaching that combines time efficiency with fun. As the lessons continue, I slowly add new tools to each weekly lesson that are exiting and interesting. While working with intermediate to advanced students, I have had coached them to apply and get accepted into some of the top Universities and Conservatories in the country. My students, beginner intermediate and advanced levels, have been awarded for their performances and activities in schools and competitions.
I am also a composition teacher. I work with composition students from beginner to advance. My composition students, over the years, range from all ages starting at 7. My students, after the first year, have been able to write string quartets and piano trios. My advanced students have entered competitions all over the country and are very successful in their composition practice. Some of their compositions have been performed in famous concert halls and schools.
As a vocal coach, I work with students of all ages. The repertoire that I recommend to beginner students includes Disney, Broadway and classical music. For intermediate and advanced vocal student, I have successfully prepared them for competitions, Broadway and University auditions as well as personal enjoyment.
Most recently I held a piano, composition and vocal recital for my students at the world famous Steinway Hall in New York City. I believe that some students work better when there is motivation for performance activities. For that reason I host these type of events. Students that decide they want to take place in these events perform among all levels. I offer these performance opportunities as an invitation. Each student has a choice as to whether they would like to perform.

My son was initially unsure of the online aspect of the lesson but has come to respect his teacher, his knowledge, talent and the way he is being taught. I think he can really improve with the techniques being used.

Paul is an amazing musician, teacher and individual. Over the course of a few weeks he specifically evaluated my singing and worked with me in order to improve my singing. With every lesson that I had, I was able to notice real improvement in my voice. Paul also exposed me to a wide array of musical styles, in order to better get to know my voice which I thoroughly enjoyed. He is very encouraging and friendly, from the first lesson he already works to help you feel comfortable.

All in all, by having Paul as an instructor you get to learn from an amazing, accomplished musician who truly knows his field and who also has a great personality while being a great teacher, I think that sums it up pretty well.

Paul is an excellent piano teacher. I came to him having forgotten how to read music after not playing for 10 years. I wanted to bring piano music back into my life. Gradually, over 4 months, I recovered everything I had previously forgotten and have progressed quickly with his patient yet encouraging and inspirational teaching style. Paul has introduced me to a wide range of music, which has pushed my piano playing to improve in all directions and on new levels. It has been a wonderful experience, and I am excited to continue and see where the music takes me.

Great instructor

I went to Paul for my first singing class not really knowing what to expect. He instantly made me feel comfortable and provided me with a calming and supportive environment to explore singing. He is such an enthusiastic and supportive teacher, and I really learned a lot from him. He seems very able to cater to personal goals and needs and help students go in a direction that they are drawn towards. He also taught me some piano! Over all a great learning experience. I would recommend this teacher to anyone.

Paul is a very patient, talented and encouraging teacher. He is gentle and kind. My daughter has grown leaps and bounds and wants to grow as a musician because of his positive attitude.

Excellent instructor - Born to teach

I am an adult student with no musical experience whatsoever. Paul is delightful! Paul has been patient with me and moves me along at a pace that I am comfortable with. I'd wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone who is interested in learning in a structured manner. I will be sticking with him for as long as he'll suffer through my remedial capacity ;-)

My teacher Paul M.

Iam an elderly student, I like the way Paul is teaching me. He has so much patience and that i has been looking for. I wanted to buy a key board and he gave ref. for good price. i will soon get my keyboard and I know that by the time I finish with Paul, I will be the great keyboard player for my church and and at home and were ever I will go to minister thru worship, praise and sharing the word.
