I had guitar and voice classes and they were awesome. He is patient with students, and helps you to grow fast and easy with his methods.
Dan
I came to Paul for some voice lessons before my band entered the studio. Not only did he help me improve my voice and ear training, but he gave me many tools to improve my timing, vocal range, and knowledge of theory. I highly recommend him!
Soni
This was my first experience with on line teaching and it was great. I had tried reading the books and watching some videos on You Tube and was not making progress. Just a few minutes with Paul and what I couldn't figure out suddenly made sense.

Looking forward to next week.

"I have been taking flute lessons for over a year with Heidi and totally love her. She is so patient and understanding. My husband and I are also taking Heidi's Music Theory on-line class which is amazing. We are learning so much. My performance on my flute has improved dramatically since starting my lessons with Heidi. She has so many innovative ideas in regards to teaching. Her compassion for music is very contagious. No matter what the age of the student I feel that Heidi will meet the student where they are and help them grow into the musician they desire to be."

"I play in a rock band that wanted to add some Sinatra type jazz songs to our repertoire. I was tasked to play bass with which I had very little experience. I decided to take some lessons with Gary to learn a little jazz theory and technique. He was a wonderful teacher. He focused in on exactly what I needed quickly and pointed me toward resources that I could use to improve. Despite my limited abilities, Gary was always patient and displayed good humor. When I needed him to write a bass line for me quickly so that I could take it on vacation, he made the time to make sure that I had what I needed. I enjoyed our lessons and recommend him highly. Gary is a teacher who truly cares about his students."
