Dee Paul, TeacherPiano Instructor
  • Piano, all skill levels – for the purposes of reading lead sheets, accompanying & embellishing melodies, and developing “play-by-ear” style playing
A church musician at heart, Dee’s teaching style focuses more on accompaniment and forming chords and less on traditional note reading.  Her lessons include chord formations, movement, and progressions.  She also enjoys sharing different playing styles (jazz, contemporary, and Southern Gospel) with her students.  She teaches improvisation and tricks for transposition, along with several other fun ways to make riffs and runs.  She specializes in teaching aspiring church musicians and singers who want to be able to accompany themselves.

Dee is available on Mondays and Tuesdays at the studio.

She is also available for lessons in the student’s home.  Please call for availability.
