- Teaching since:
I am a skilled pianist with over 18 years of practice and 10 years of teaching. I have played for several weddings and am the music coordinator at my local church. I studied music theory and composition at Yale University and casually compose music on the side.
I teach piano students of all different ages from beginner to intermediate levels. As a therapist and social worker, I also work on empowering you to become the musician you want to be. We'll work on reading and playing music fluently and accurately, developing technique so that more songs are accessible to you, learning the basics of music theory, and building musicality so that you can eventually pick up and play songs by ear.
Many of my students have gone on to play at their respective churches and play at weddings, with the youngest having played at his first gig at age eleven. My personal passion is contemporary music, with some of my favorite pieces to play being covers of popular songs, video games, and anime themes. I love to teach and look forward to helping you become a better musician.
Paul knows how to connect with students and make learning fun.
Paul is a meticulous and loving teacher. He has a great deal of patience and knowledge. He helped my son when he was 9, learned about chords and musicality. There was some emphasis on music theory and he helped my son understand how a song worked as opposed to how to play a song. In addition, Paul is really good with kids. I would highly recommend him for anyone wanting to understand music and play piano.+ Read More

I was stuck on progression for a period of time until I met Paul, within a month or two I can feel growth with my piano skills.+ Read More
