Schedule a lesson with Paul

Paul offered skype trial lessons with previous students before actually launching his official skype lessons and here’s what some students had to say:

Paul’s skype lessons have been fun, easy, and very informative.
– Chris L.

It’s so cool to be able to continue my lessons with Paul even when he’s on the road and all.
– Michelle R.

I like the fact that if I cancel a lesson it can easily be rescheduled for a later time even the same day. Paul’s skype lessons are great because the Internet can be used anywhere.”
– Nick O.


Paul understands that each and every one of his students is unique, and has their own goals and passions for drumming. Therefore, Paul personally customizes each and every one of his student’s lesson plans, so that each student can reach their highest potential.

I have been traveling on the road a lot with my band The Sammus Theory so I decided that Skype lessons would be the most perfect way to keep my students on track.”
– Paul Wandtke
