Inspired by guitar greats like Jimi Hendrix, Mark Knopfler, Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck, Paul began playing guitar in his early teens.
After years of lessons with local tutors and teaching himself he moved to London to study music for four years.
Paul completed a BMus degree in Popular Music Performance at the prestigious Tech Music School (London College of Music) in London where he studied under immensely respected tutors.
Paul has attended masterclasses by world renowned guitarists including Mike Stern, Paul Gilbert, Guthrie Govan and Hugh Burns.
Paul also works as a peripatetic guitar tutor visiting schools to deliver one to one and group guitar lessons.
He is one half of an acoustic duo and a member of function bands who gig at events throughout the country.
When not playing or teaching guitar Paul spends lots of time thinking about buying vintage American Fender Telecasters!
