Educational Philosophy:

It is most important that students dedicate themselves to weekly instruction pieces and of course through dedicated practice. Through Paul’s unique method of instruction, students will find that their technical abilities will increase significantly through the study of technique, etudes and solo pieces in a short period of time.

Also I have my method of learning chord progression. It very useful for playing the song in easy and simple way PLUS gospel music.
