What is the Hardest thing about learning Music?

Most music students find that reading music is the hardest part in the beginning. When you’re trying to read and play, the music gets all chopped up.  Lots of stops and starts. This struggle can go on for 2 or 3 years before you can actually put musical feeling into it.  Some people say, if there’s no feeling, it’s not music!  And you’re going to have to try hard for a couple years to get to the fun part?  It’s no wonder so many music students get frustrated and quit!

These lessons fix that, big time! They get you to the feeling in the music from the very first lesson.  How? By letting you make up music off the page and play by ear. You get to Jam.  To make sure you’re getting everything you really need to succeed, you learn to read notes too. The lessons have a rhythm and pacing. They show you how to learn.  They don’t just give you a fish sandwich.  They give you a pole, a line, a hook, some bait and lots of help, so you can fish for yourself!  Then, it’s a skill that lasts a lifetime!

Who is David Paul?

David Paul Violin PicAfter nearly 30 years teaching violin and piano in his private studio, teaching classroom music to Pre-K, Elementary and Jr. High, and leading an orchestra at a top 10 High School for the Performing Arts, David Paul has brought a simple sequence of steps to learn music that works on all instruments. He played violin full time in a symphony for 7 years. His mentor was the concertmaster of the Chicago Symphony.  He practiced 4-6 hours a day for years to get that full time orchestra job.  He can play all 8 instruments on www.MusicWithDavidPaul.com  Currently, David has a private studio, teaches pre-k classes, teaches Tai Chi Gung and performs concerts of his own music. He also plays piano for 4 services a week at his church. He’s lovin’ the guitar these days too, especially Celtic tunes. Awesome!!


How Much Do Private Music Lessons Cost?

Private music lessons are typically between $20 to $35 per 30 minute lesson.  $80 to $140 a month per child is quite common.  With a single subscription to www.MusicWithDavidPaul.com you save more than 60% a month.  Your savings for a whole family will be hundreds of dollars a month. You can choose from 8 different instruments, plus get the Pre-K lessons FREE. And, with the online lessons, you do not hassle traffic, or lose all that time getting to and from the music teacher’s studio every week.


Learning How to Learn

As strange as it sounds, beginning music students really don’t know how to practice very well.  That’s not their fault.  They’re just starting out.  But almost every music teacher focuses on the mechanics, the note reading, and learning songs. There’s lots to do.  Most don’t have time to show students how to practice at home between lessons.  They hope they will, but they don’t show them how.

Music With David Paul lessons show students how to practice by putting all the right answers in front of them in a simple, step by step approach to playing.  These steps become a powerful tool they can use your whole life.

Start At the Beginning

What notes do I need?  

At the beginning of every lesson, you see a fingering chart. It tells you exactly the notes you need and where to find them. A younger child may need a little help getting to the notes for a lesson or two.  They’ll be so excited that mom or dad spends time with them.  Quality time together will always be at the top of a child’s wish list.  🙂

Don’t forget!! Theo and Kahn show up with little 2 minute help videos along the way.  Sure beats having an adult “explaining” stuff all the time.  It’s like you’re figuring it out all by yourself!
Guitar Lesson One Notes

What Do The notes Sound Like?

Scales are the back bone of all music.  We do them in little bits, and make them a habit.  Some teachers wait a couple years to introduce them. Big mistake! … not a ton, just a little bit. 30 seconds or so, that’s all. They’re challenging at times, but scales get to the point, really fast. You play them here in a nice slow speed, two beats long, then exactly twice as fast.  Master that, and you can play fast some day. Period!  That’s what the Julliard professor figured out. Slow, then twice as fast. You get the very best help, from the very beginning. You can do it!!


Speak to Me!

We put those scale notes into simple music words.  Listen, then repeat. Listen to a new word, repeat it back.  It’s called the Echo Game. It builds playing by ear and note reading side by side. Small bits. Easy to remember.


 I’m not feelin’ you

You can count on a gazillion hands the number of music students who play, but never get to feel a single note of real music.  It may be the single biggest reason why students quit.  What they are asked to do doesn’t sound like music, and it doesn’t feel like music either.  It’s painful to play and painful to listen to. Note reading takes awhile, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be able to feel the music.  So each lesson takes the notes of the echo game and has a student just make it up.  They “Jam” with a piano part. There are no right or wrong notes either.  You just play!

I Want to Play Songs!

For some children, taking music lessons is all about playing songs.  There are 45 songs in Book 1. These songs start out short. There are a bunch of them. The more songs you learn, the better you can read.  In Book 2 there are 25. But it’s like having double because the songs come with duet and harmony parts.  You get to learn how to play together in a band, even form a band of your own if you like. Songs on Music With David Paul range from well known children’s tunes that everybody learns growing up, to popular folk songs, to 12 bar blues, to gospel tunes, multi cultural songs from around the world and classical pieces as well. Book 3 and Book 4 are in the works! Even more songs for the same low price.
