I really enjoyed my 1st meeting with Paul. He helped me to feel confident about learning to play the saxophone. I look forward to my next lesson.

Paul is so great! I'm an adult learning the alto saxophone with almost no prior music experience. He is patient with my many questions, very encouraging, highly skilled (as a musician and instructor), and fun to be around! The majority of our lessons are online and that is working well too.

My name is Justin, and I've been tutored by Paul since October 2018. I came to him without any prior music experience and unsure if I could ever learn to play the guitar. I'm glad that I chose him as my tutor. He knows how to explain different concepts in a way that I can understand. That coupled with his eagerness for me to get better makes him an excellent teacher. Every time I attend his class I'm always motivated to improve. I would definitely recommend him to anyone trying to play an instrument.

My son's first lesson with Paul went well. My son has ADHD and keeping his attention takes work. Even though my son had a meltdown during his lesson, Paul showed patience and continued to encourage him. After my son's first lesson, he was excited and told us how much he enjoyed drums.

Paul is the epitome of profession, and a world class vocal coach. He is working with two of my artist and they and I love his teaching style and techniques. His approach to build a personal relationship with individuals is essential and critical to the success of artist development. I am honored to be apart of his team and working with him to help build my artist as well as myself into a NATIONAL UMPIRE! Paul is GOD sent and a blessing to work with and know.

I started going to bass lessons with Mr. Paul in December 2019 without no experience with playing the bass. It's now March 2020, and I can now say I learned how play scales and some bass lines now. Mr. Paul is a great teacher and very patience with his students. Now I CANT STOPING COMING TO PRACTICE. THIS HAS REALLY BEEN A GREAT EXPERIENCE. THANKS BRO.....

Wow! Mr. Paul is correcting 35 years of bad habits playing the piano. Can't wait to see what lesson #2 has in store. Great teacher and very patient.

Paul 's positive attitude and excitement for making music is a major factor in a good instructor. His encouragement and wanting you to learn makes the lessons challenging. If you listen to his expert musical advise, practice what he teaches, you will see a vast improvement in your playing ability and understanding of music. He is patient and has a good temperament that makes learning fun. I know I have challenged him with my rhythm issues but I have progressed to a level in a short time that I am confident in playing with others and enjoy making music. Thanks Paul!

Excellent first lesson! I’m so excited to continue my lessons with Paul!

I'll get right to the point. Paul's personality made it extremely easy for me not only to be comfortable but to feel really appreciated. I was fearful that Paul may feel like, "oh great another person who THINKS he has something but can't sing a lick!" I experienced the exact opposite. Within 15 minutes he located what has been my most frustrating issue. I felt like I was already ahead of the game and we hadn't even started yet! Paul has the rare balance of a sense of humor and still following an agenda to meet my goal. Thanks to Paul I really feel like I can, and WILL reach all my goals. AND enjoy the journey to them!! Can't wait for the next lesson!

Paul was great with my 5 year old daughter. She's very nervous about making mistakes and he helped her focus on her abilities instead. Here's a great choice for children.

Paul is outstanding! He certainly has all 5 of the great qualities that you would want in an instructor. He is extremely patient, skilled, serious but also fun & inspiring and makes each and every lesson joyful and enjoyable. In fact I am enjoying my piano lessons so much that I just purchased more.

Paul has been a great instructor. Being a beginner student with no prior knowledge, I have been surprised at how articulate Paul has been in providing training regimes along with a follow up of progress reports on techniques learned. I have made tremendous progress since learning how to practice effectively and is lookin forward to see how far I can go!

An amazing teacher that has truly changed my life, and challenges me to be a better musician every week!

Paul has been a tremendous instructor for me and my journey on learning acoustic guitar. During lessons he has also taught me music theory and explained it simply, and through that I feel like the guitar and music in general has been opened up to me and I now see music more clearly. I highly recommend him as an instructor!

Paul is an amazing teacher and mentor. Today we tackled harmonies while recording and it was so special to me. Paul is dedicated to his craft and his students. He prepares for each lesson, whether vocal or piano, and pushes me further along while reinforcing what we learned previously. He's just the perfect balance of strict and encouraging, always leaving me with a lesson that I had not anticipated and a whole lot of fun. I am so happy I found a teacher as great as Paul, he is truly one of a kind!

I am a 59 year old student of Mr. Paul. I had never taken lessons prior to now. I was taught basic cords and theory that I could build upon. What he did with me was nothing short of magical. I can now read and write very simple songs. My grandkids and wife thinks I am great and that's all that matters to me. He reminded me on a regular basis to practice, practice, practice. I will never forget what he did for me. Thank you Mr. W
May Peace continue to be with you.

Mr. Paul is a thoughtful and patient instructor. I never had piano lessons before and he quickly saw my potential. He immediately fostered my interest in music by showing me how to play songs so I could become acclimated to the finger mechanics of the piano. I practiced avidly and my confidence grew as I overcame each new challenge. Currently, I'm learning how to read music and then actually play from sheet music. I'm proud of my progression thus far and it's a true testament to Mr. Paul's expertise and teaching acumen. I personally think he's brilliant. He plays sooo many instruments and he also has a passion for languages. Mr. Paul said music and spoken language are forms of communication that provide beautiful avenues to express yourself. I'm really blessed I found him as an instructor and I highly recommend him to anyone looking to learn how to play an instrument at any level of expertise.

Three words: Wow, Wow, and Wow! I've been a student of Paul's since 2014, and let me tell you, he has taken me literally from not being able to do anything to creating my own basslines! Bass has always been a dream that I was afraid to pursue, especially now that I've gotten older, but Paul consistently challenges you with new ideas and concepts to make you a stronger musician! I use musician on purpose because despite the fact that I am still a student, Paul's tutelage allowed me to play with other musicians and at church within a year! He has a plethora of exercises, theory, and techniques that are shaping me to be a well rounded Bassist. Moreover, I'll conclude and say that in addition to all of this, Paul is just a great guy in general...very charismatic, patient and encouraging, and he knows just how much to challenge you without making things seem impossible. Has definitely become a great friend. If you want to become a fine musician, look no further...
