My priority is to inspire & guide my students in fun, creative ways, both traditional and modern. I tailor my approach to each student's unique goals & talents. For traditional piano, I generally use the Bastien method. For pop/jazz, I generally use the iReal Pro app. Also available: instruction in songwriting, music theory/arranging/composition. [In addition, I can provide Piano Tuning services at a discounted rate.]

I have known and gigged with Paul for many years and he has always been warm and thoughtful as a person and a musician. He has many years of teaching experience and has a vast knowledge of different musical styles, theory, composition and application. Highly recommended!
Paul has been an excellent working professional keyboardist for many years, and is an organized thinker and good communicator. He is an experienced teacher and also an empathetic and warm person- I recommend him highly to anyone looking for a wonderful piano teacher!
