    My 8 year old son has been taking guitar lessons for several months with Paul Anderson. He is excited about learning and even performed in his first Guitarbque, which is the twice annual showcase for Pauls students. It was wonderful watching Pauls students ages 7-70. I learned that many had been students for over ten years! We are looking forward to Tys continued fun in learning guitar!

    I have been taking lessons from Paul for two years. He is a great teacher and has an incredible knowledge of music. I have played things that I never thought I could play. My lesson is one of the best hours of my week.

    Paul is an amazing guitar teacher. He is fun, creative, talented, enthusiastic and all around a great guy. He really makes an effort to understand his students and bring out the very best in them in a low key, supportive way. I would recommend him to anyone looking to learn guitar. He is also flexible on schedule and meeting place which is priceless.
