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 am an adult who has no experience with any type of instrument and was very nervous and intimidated at first. Then I met with Michael, and though there was a ton of information we had to go through, he really made me feel at ease. He has the knowledge, patience, and understanding I was really looking for in a teacher and I'm so happy I found him!
Holly
With his flexibility and willingness to accommodate us my daughter learned a lot from him. He was a wonderful teacher and a great person to do business with.
