"There's a special star in your crown up in heaven. You're more than just an artist and a teacher. You're an INSPIRER! While I'm now on book #21 that I have recorded professionally since I took your audio book class all because of the work we did in your classes. Thanks for everything once again!" -James
"Thank you on so many levels for your wonderful class! As this was my first course in several decades I was understandably terrified, but you made it such a safe and fun place to be, with kindness and encouragement for everybody. I really enjoyed working with you, and I believe I'd like to pursue work in audio books. I will of course register for your next class. Thank you again for a terrific class!" -Mary Lynn
"Paul is wonderful-a great teacher and an amazing talent!" -Mary Clancy Mango
"Just wanted to say that I thought your Audiobook class was fabulous. You really opened up a whole new world for me. I've had one or two audiobook classes (mostly single sessions) before, and honestly they didn't do much for me; and until having this class, I was kind of "on the fence" about my willingness or ability to perform in the audio book world, but this time around you helped me to not only make up my mind that I can and will do this, but you also helped me find my "voice" much in the way a very good singing coach helps his student to find theirs. You gave us so much to work with - and it stuck. That's the sign of a good teacher putting the knowledge out there and having the ability and energy to keep it fresh and interesting enough so that is sticks with the student. I will treasure this experience as I move forward towards forging a career as an audiobook narrator." -Dan Pona
