“Paul has been teaching guitar to my son and I for a few years. We really enjoy the lessons and Paul’s teaching style makes the process fun and motivating. My son has improved so much over the years and he looks forward to his guitar lesson every week. I highly recommend Paul Lambert as a guitar teacher” — Corinne A.
