I took drum lessons from Paul for over 10 years and can honestly say that he is one of the most gifted, intuitive, and dedicated drum teachers you will find. He is not only passionate about the craft of drumming but also strives to communicate the concepts in the most clear and understandable way. When I began learning from Paul, I was 8 years old; and naturally, at that age, couldn't easily pick up on a lot of the lingo typically used to train an older student. Paul still willingly and excitedly took on the challenge, however, and worked with me through each phase of growth, adapting his teaching method to meet me at my level, all the way until I left for college. My years of training with Paul developed in me a passion for music that led me to pursue it through college. Thus, my senior year of high school, I auditioned to attend a private university in Virginia and received a full-tuition music scholarship. Upon graduating with a music degree, I moved to Nashville to pursue drumming full-time and have been blessed with the opportunity to drum on a number of national tours and Nashville sessions. My training with Paul has given me invaluable tools to face each musical situation with preparation and poise, and his mentorship continues to challenge me to be a better musician and a better student of my craft.
