Paul Schnoebelen has been studying saxophone with Debbie Yarrow beginning this past fall. Paul is completing his first method book and has mastered 8 major scales and a two-octave chromatic scale.
Every week, Paul comes prepared to take on more. “Paul works so hard each week to really master each exercise or scale. His motivation is progress; he continually wants to do more and learn more. He is accomplishing so much for just having started! His positive personality is always welcome!” says Debbie.
Paul is in 5th grade, is homeschooled, and really enjoys sports. He plays baseball, basketball, and soccer. He really likes to watch football. As for a favorite team, he couldn’t say a particular favorite. He also participates in 4-H and has fun playing video games.
He advises new musicians to practice every day and learn your scales! Paul has fun playing melodies from popular movies, such as Star Wars and Pink Panther. He is excited to play in a jazz band, someday very soon, and works on ear training with Debbie at each lesson to prepare him for being a strong improviser.
Keep up the great work, Paul!
