Great experience. Someone who really cares about the kids he’s teaching. Would highly recommendAug 21, 2019Verified
I’ve been receiving piano lessons for about 3 months now with Mr. Paul. He has been very patient and works with my schedule. He gives feedback always with positive energy and also provide mental motivation.May 30, 2019VerifiedThe Academy for Arts & Education's reply
Thank you Lawanda. It is great that you make time out of your busy schedule for your music. You are doing a fantastic job.
Teaches students to play from the heart... Nice person, very talented and professional. Only one lesson so far, but felt totally at home. We hired him for my son. I think it will be great.Apr 7, 2019Verified
Paul is a incredible teacher! Very patient, professional and punctual! I am looking forward to my journey on the piano with Paul. I am very confident that I have found a great music teacher in order to pursue my dreams!Oct 13, 2018Verified
Paul was extremely professional and very responsive! He immediately contacted me about what my event needed and offered precisely the music that was fitting for the occasion! He provided not only piano & saxophone music, but learned additional songs for my community’s faith based event! All the guests commented on how relaxing and beautiful the music was! Will definitely be hiring him again for a future event! Thank you sooo much!Dec 2, 2019Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I have a range of time slots to choose from: Weekday mornings, weekday afternoons, and weekday evenings. Your first lesson/consultation is free. There are 3 different sessions offered: 30 minutes ($30.00), 45 minutes ($40.00), and 60 minutes, ($50.00)
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?My process for working with a new student is: 1. I perform a short evaluation of the student's learning style and personality. 2. I get to know the student. 3. I structure instructions (within curriculum) to meet the needs of the student's learning style. 4. I help the student set goals . 5. I take the student through the learning process to reach those goals. 6. I help the student celebrate small successes along the way.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I began studying music at age 13. I studied piano at Xavier University of Louisiana. I also studied piano and composition with composer and university professor, Roger Dickerson. I have been working with students for over 20 years. I taught in Fort Bend ISD, Lamar CISD, and Kipp Academy. I also taught adult education at Leisure Learning Unlimited.
