Paul has reached round two at Berklee! A few words from Paul:

Hello everyone,

I can’t believe how fast the summer is slipping by mostly because of the challenges that I have faced at Berklee both with performing and my studies. Well, now it’s time for round two or most call it “second semester” but what’s the difference right? Anyway stay tuned because a couple of well respected artist’s have asked me to be a part of their full- length albums which will be announced and recorded by either the tail end of this year or by early 2009!

Paul has reached finals week at Berklee and here’s what he has to say about it!

Hello everyone,

Although I have only been at Berklee for one semester I simply can not argue the fact that Berklee is everything and anything that the school claims to be AND MORE. My words will never really explain my experiences thus far (nor do I have the time too) but I must say that what Berklee is doing is amazing and beautiful. With all things said………………….. I’m off to practice!

Thanks everyone!

January 2008

Before entering Boston’s Berklee College of Music, Paul will be spending the next three months (during his break from school) performing drums six nights a week on Carnival Cruise Lines.

A few words from Paul:

Carnival is supplying Paul with an all expense paid trip to and from the cruise which includes free lodging and free meals. Carnival port destinations will include (but are not limited to) Galveston, Texas. Ensenada, Mexico. Montego Bay, Jamaica. and many more. Paul will be performing many different styles of music including Rock, R&B, Jazz, Latin and more.

Here’s what Paul has to say about this matter:

Initially, I wanted to take a break from school and I thought, “Heck, I’ll go on a cruise for once in my life.” So, I started packing everything I needed; a pair of sticks and a practice pad kit (what can I say, “I love to drum”). Then came time to order my cruise line ticket, and I noticed that Carnival was looking for a replacement drummer, and I took the job. Why not, I mean if I’m gonna go on vacation then I might as well go on a PAID VACATION!

Thanks everyone,
