Guitar lessons aimed at YOUR interests!

Voted "Most loved Music lessons in St. Paul" by!

My teaching philosophy is simple: Have a fun time learning the guitar via the music YOU like best! My job, is to get you playing the kind of music that makes you want to pick-up the guitar everyday!

Ever wanted the skill to play fast solos, sweep-picked arpeggios, and completely understand the fret-board? Maybe you just wanted to improve your over-all lead guitar technique? Maybe you have never touched a guitar, but would like to start playing! Let me help you!

I've been teaching students these skills for over 16 years, with each lesson custom-tailored to you and and your individual needs as a guitar player. I am a college educated instructor and performer with Blues, Rock, Metal, Flamenco and Classical being my specialities. I offer weekly half-hour and hour lessons Monday-Friday and offer competitive rates. Contact me to set-up a phone consultation and we can get you on your way!

I love seeing students excited about picking up the guitar and playing! Be it learning a favorite song, or writing music, watching students find joy in their instrument is always a pleasure!

I also enjoy working with students who have learning challenges such as autism, dyslexia, neurological issues, and aspergers.

    Paul is a fantastic instructor who prepped for each lesson we had before it happened. He would always ask questions about what I was having trouble with and help steer the lesson to assist with what I needed further help with. He is very passionate about what he does and always makes the lesson fun.

    Frequently asked questions

    I start by getting to know what genre of music the student is most interested in studying, and any goals they might have. I then customize lessons based on that discussion, and what will best help the student achieve their goals!

    I studied musicology, composition, and music education in the United states, Japan, and throughout Europe.

    I offer competitive rates for weekly half-hour and hour lessons paid per month. I also offer options for per-lesson payments as well. We can discuss rates upon speaking with each other!

    The best question a student should ask themselves is "What style of music am I going to have the most fun learning about?"
