What to Expect

Weekly piano and voice lessons are 30, 45 or 60 minutes in length. The lesson time is divided into working on technique, sight-reading, theory and repertoire. Each lesson is unique because the content is based on what the student has prepared or not prepared (yes, few of us are consistent every week).

Students are encouraged to practice every day, however, Paul believes that learning how to practice is a skill and he helps students understand what kind of practice helps them grow best. For instance, practice content should vary a little every day. The key is to sit down and play the piano every day.

Paul believes that commitment and perseverance are important in meeting your goals of learning to play or sing better than you do now. He thinks working hard at an attainable goal is fun. There are opportunities throughout the year to perform.
