Mark Paulson began his music studies when he was five years old. From 1978-1979, Mr. Paulson studied church music at Crown College in Minnesota. He received an Associate of Religious Arts degree from Northeastern Bible College and a degree in Piano Performance from Montclair State University. He has performed popular and sacred music as an entertainer and as a church musician for over 30 years. He is an adjudicator for The National Piano Guild.

 Mr. Paulson's best ability in music is to teach piano. One of his many teachers was Eleanor Statmore who studied with Rosina Lhevinne at Julliard. Mr. Paulson has also studied with Miss Ruth Slatum, Mrs. Rhoda Nelson, Dr. Paul Satre, Dr. Ruth Rendelman, Mr. Edmund Battersby and Dr. Beth Klingenstein.

Mr. Paulson has taught piano since 1979. He teaches primarily in his student's homes near Glen Ridge and Montclair, New Jersey. He teaches adults and children at every level. Some of his students are just beginning while others are performing very advanced repertoire.

Mark believes that starting too soon can be difficult for young children and can also cause them to lose interest. Mr. Paulson recommends that children have a desire to study music and are able to easily read words before they begin lessons. It is in the best interest of most students to wait until they are at least seven or eight years old before they begin to take private piano lessons. If they start too early, they will usually quit and never study the piano again.

Each student that studies with Mr. Paulson is taught differently according to their own interests and needs. Students have a desire to study with Mark for many years because of the way that he teaches. His approach has made him a very popular teacher. His studio is usually full every year.

It has been Mr. Paulson's desire to do whatever he can do to help students and teachers develop their piano performance and teaching skills. If he can help you, please contact him.

It is possible to study with Mr. Paulson from anywhere in the world using Skype. For more information, go to www.webcampiano.net
