Joey Says…
“Paul is a friend and fellow musician many of us have played with over the years. He is a very accomplished guitar player, songwriter, and performer. If you’re looking to learn some fun guitar music, acoustic and/or electric, give us a call and ask for Paul!”



My son Kyle has been taking electric guitar lessons from Paul for three weeks now and loves it. He says he is learning so much and practices every day so he is ready for his next lesson. Kyle says he wishes the lessons were longer because he likes it so much and can’t wait for his weekly lesson. All in all, we are very happy with Paul and the skill he is teaching our son. -Rachelle S.

I’m in 8th grade and have been taking lessons from Paul for 8 months. He’s nice and helps me to progress a lot each lessons, and I have fun while learning. I would recommend Paul to anyone.
