“Classical guitar lessons with Paul makes a student like me very appreciative and thankful. He does not rush you when you have a lesson with him and throughout the lesson, he gives you encouragement on how you are improving. Paul always reminds me that to get to the mountaintop, we must get through the molehills. I am thankful for his flexibility but also his accountability as I learn.”
“Paul has instructed me since February of 2023. As an intermediate player coming back to the instrument after some years away, Paul charted a course to take me to the next level. He reviewed the basics, addressed music theory, and provided helpful tips during each lesson. More than anything, Paul renewed my love for the guitar by creating a vision of what was possible with the instrument. Each lesson builds on the last, and with much practice or little each week, Paul patiently builds my skills. He has the added value of being a composer and arranger of guitar music, so he can view potential pieces from end-to-end, and make helpful observations. If you are considering picking up the classical guitar or are coming back to the guitar, Paul can and will help you succeed. And his instructing manner is always charitable, yet challenging. I truly appreciate his contributions to my success. Could not be doing it without him.”
