Welcome to Paul W. Thompson Music!

I teach musical theater voice, popular vocal styles, music improv, traditional and contemporary piano, and the situations in which these arts overlap. At Paul W. Thompson Music, the study of music (whether for theatrical purposes or not) is student-focused. In this way, students can achieve the goals they set up for themselves when they begin instruction.

And as an experienced theater practitioner, I realize that music is one of the tools at the storyteller’s disposal. How does character-based music help tell this story? And how do music and theater inform and enhance one another?”
