Playing music is fun! Contact Paul to arrange your first lesson.

For Parents

With many years of experience teaching and a natural sense of humour, Paul makes lessons fun!  Children explore their interests, develop skills, and learn music theory at a pace that suits them.

Music lessons have many benefits: they help children develop confidence and focus, and regular practice develops fine and gross motor skills.

Parents are welcome to sit in on the lessons. Contact Paul to find out more about lessons for children and teens (ages eight and up).
