    Paul does a good job of meeting my son where he’s at, encouraging him and advancing, without too much pressure. Very happy!

    Paul is kind and patient, playful and cool. He is prompt with lesson start time and with responding to texts. He can teach face to face or on line with no problem. Both my kids loved taking lessons with him. They learned not only how to play, but also how to love music and appreciate it. I recommend learning with him to any age, level or woodwind instrument.

    In addition to his kind and excellent communication and teaching foundational skills, my favorite thing about Paul is the way he encourages a rich exploration of music (of any genre)! I think this gives my son a sense of wonder, curiosity, and ownership over his own music education.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I first inquire if the student is a complete beginner and if not, how long they have been playing, what lesson book method they are using (if any) or songs they are presently working on.   Then I can ascertain a plan for where to start.   Also asking the student what they would like to acheive and what styles they are interested in.
