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!

Paul was wonderful . It was a little mixup on the location but everything turned out fine. Paul was able to identify the areas I need to work on and I’m looking forward to my next class.

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

Acoustic Guitar ·

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!

Music Recording ·

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...
