Paulie is a full-time professional musician and a Senior Instructor with the SDML Academy of Guitar, headquartered in Lexington KY. Paulie began teaching in 2006 and has enrolled over 300 students in that time. He also pioneered the Chicagoland branch of the Academy, and from 2014 - 2016 he taught dozens of students and certified two new SDML instructors.
Whatever you want to be able to do on guitar, Paulie specializes in getting you there as quickly as possible by way of maximized efficiency and economy in learning and play. There are no books to buy and no “required learning.” Everything that is taught is for a specific reason and connected to something you already know. As a result, most every student exceeds his or her goals and is pleasantly surprised to see results beyond what they would have thought possible, while having fun and looking forward to playing.
With students of all abilities ranging from age 6 to 70 and up, many have achieved a variety of successes in virtually all styles of music – rock, folk, pop, country, metal, bluegrass, jazz, blues, etc. Some simply enjoy a new pastime, while others fulfill dreams of playing music professionally in bands, songwriting, performance, recording, and other areas in the industry.
