« Paul is the most enthusiastic and knowledgeable guitar tutor around. Not only did Paul expand my musical knowledge and technique tenfold, he inspired me to begin teaching guitar as well! I'm a much more competent musician for having studied under Paul, and any student would be lucky to have his guidance. Whether you're looking to shred, learn advanced jazz or just string together your first chords, you can trust Paul to teach you! »

I first met Paul some 20 years ago. I’d already been playing guitar for 20 years at the time. He introduced me to the CAGED system and that completely reorientated my approach to the fretboard. Paul is incredibly player, highly knowledgeable, a great teacher and an all round standup guy. Highly recommended.

Paul taught me for a number of years and really helped me develop as a guitar player and an all round musician and songwriter. He listens, helps you grow and really helped me get confidence in my playing. Paul has taught a number of my friends and we all agree he is without a doubt one of the most unique teachers around. If you want someone to truly bring out your enjoyment in music, look no further the great Paul Foad!
