I truly believed that I could never go professional given I lost my voice every time I finished singing. It was through Dominique's amazing teachings that I grew, developed, and truly honed in on my craft.

Paul is exceptional as a teacher, musician and perhaps most importantly as a human being. I genuinely enjoy every week's lesson and look forward to them. I've had two other guitar teacher before Paul and neither of them hold up a candle to his dedication and caring.
