About Dolly Paul, MA

Adult students and children will begin their path in music with an applied classical foundation on their instrument of choice, supplemented with music theory. As the student excels, they may choose to take part in studio recitals and/or competition opportunities that are available locally. They may also choose to focus on a single genre (sacred, jazz, classical, popular, or folk.) Whether my student learning for fun, relaxation, or is focused towards a professional career in music, each student is given the tools to find their confidence and enjoy their music skills. 

Dolly Paul has performed throughout the Midwest US, Ontario Canada, Ireland, and Austria in the genres of classical, jazz, sacred and folk music. She earned her MA from the University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music with a full graduate scholarship; her Certificate in Opera from the American Institute of Musical Studies in Graz, Austria; and her BA from Wayne State University as the recipient of The Friends of Wayne Vocal Performance Scholarship, and The Harriet Petry Musc Education Scholarship.
