My kids enjoy having Paul as their virtual piano teacher. I wasn’t sure how a lesson would work virtually as we live in Texas and he lives in California, but it works surprisingly well! He uses three cameras and my kids use their one camera and have a productive 30 minute lesson. His schedule is flexible regarding the time difference, he answers text promptly, and the kids enjoy their time with him. Highly recommended!

Details: 10 - 13 years old • Yes, the student can read music • 0 - 2 yrs of formal training • Pop • Yes, the student has a piano • 30 minutes • My home, venue, etc.

I definitely recommend Paul. Going in I felt a little silly starting to learn the piano at 47. Paul's positive energy and expertise instantly put me at ease. He took his time to answer all my questions and explain every aspect of the piano to me. Before I knew it I was actually learning notes and tinkling the ivories. I cannot wait for my next lesson. Thank you Paul.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Price rates vary by duration of time whether it is a mobile or online lesson. A lesson time and day would be scheduled and will remain the same from lesson to lesson. Reschedule Policy: to reschedule a lesson, you must provide at least 24 hours prior notice. Lesson Cancellation Policy: if you do not provide adequate notice in advance, you will be charged ($20) for the missed scheduled lesson.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    An intake appointment is arranged to see how to best meet the needs of the individual. A plan is then discussed with the individual to make certain they are receiving what they need. Then lessons are scheduled on a regular basis.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have been playing the piano for well over 50 years and the guitar for 40 + years!
