Hi, I’m Paul. I am a musician and educator from Cincinnati, Ohio. After having completed my degree in Music Education at Eastern Kentucky University and spending the last year traveling around Europe teaching English, I am excited to be back in my hometown teaching my neighbors about my favorite thing in the world: music! I have been playing piano for over 10 years in addition to other instruments such as guitar and percussion. Making music accessible and fun for my students is my passion. I have experience working with students of all ages and abilities.
I have a background in jazz and improvisation as well as classical music and other styles. This means that I like to teach students about music holistically, covering not just piano performance, but also the musical concepts that make things work. When students not only know how to practice, but also understand the theory and context behind what they are doing, it is much easier for them to understand and relate to. I love to teach because I love to see others experience all the things music has given me: creative expression, artistic fulfillment, confidence, self-awareness, and, of course, FUN!
