My 10 year old daughter has been taking singing lessons from Paul for the past 2 years, (recently added guitar lessons) -- I cannot even put into words how awesome he is as an teacher. Just the right amount of nurturing, positive encouragement and fun. And he comes with years and years of "in the business" experience, so his advice really carries weight. It's a bit of a drive from where we are to get to him, but we cannot even imagine going to anyone else. Daughter literally looks forward to each lesson (this is the same person that groans every morning about school, just to give some context). Worth the drive. Worth the cost.
