All levels and styles taught From beginners to advanced All ages welcome from 5 years up Fun lessons with friendly experienced teacher
A graduate of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland where I studied both piano and classical accordion, I have over six years teaching experience and coach all levels of playing from beginners to more advanced players. I have extensive performance experience in the UK and abroad, and always ensure that lessons are constructive, enjoyable and engaging. I am very happy to work on ABRSM graded exams should the student wish to do so. I took a special interest in teaching whilst studying at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and am currently the piano and accordion tutor at Merlin Academy of Traditional Music in Melrose. I also teach at the Accordion Summer School held annually at the Conservatoire in Glasgow.

Whilst studying there he was awarded the acclaimed Governors Recital Prize for Keyboard, and was also one of the keyboard section finalists in the 2011 Royal Overseas League competition. Paul  is a highly accomplished player with appearances at international music festivals such as Baltica Harmonica in St. Petersburg – Russia, Sata-Häme Soi Accordion festival in Ikaalinen – Finland, and the world famous Edinburgh Fringe Festival, held annually in Scotland. He has also performed in France, Italy, Greece, Bahrain and the USA. In 2011, Paul released his debut solo album entitled “Classical Accordion” featuring a mixture of transcriptions of works by J.S. Bach, Rameau, Moszkowski and Khachaturian, as well as original works by Alexander Nagayev and Franck Angelis. He made his Bridgewater Hall debut with a solo recital as part of the long established Manchester Mid-Days concert series in 2013 and completed a major national tour of concerts in July 2014 to coincide with his CD release ‘Accordion Sensations’. The disc features a mixture of solo repertoire by Scarlatti, Zolotariev and Weber as well as and chamber works by Piazzolla for which Paul is joined on the recording by violinist Feargus Hetherington and the Maxwell String Quartet. He has also performed with Ute Lemper and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, the Paragon Ensemble, Scottish Opera Connect Orchestra, and is a founder member of the Scottish Tango Ensemble. Paul has been featured on BBC Radio 3’s ‘In Tune’ programme with Sean Rafferty, performing live in the studio, BBC Radio Scotland’s ‘Classics Unwrapped’ and California’s KDFC Classical Music Radio Station in San Francisco.
