Paul Cosh is the best teacher I’ve ever worked with, I owe him so much. He has the answer to any issue and his advice was invaluable. I will always go to him if I need to discuss playing issues.

Paul Cosh is the only person I would go to with technical or performance issues. He is a great teacher.
Steve Stewart, Soprano Cornet Supremo
Paul Cosh is a terrific teacher. He has the ability to see a student’s needs, musically, physically and, most importantly, mentally. Good straightforward advice from Paul has helped me on many occasions throughout my career. No gimmicks, no smoke and mirrors, just fantastic teaching.

Lessons from Paul Cosh are an enlightening experience for both students and staff. His care and attention to individual needs is so refreshing and his approach to students of all ages is engaging, informative and reaps rewards long after his visit is over. Paul’s teaching is clear and thoughtful, based on an outstanding knowledge of the technical challenges, delivered with clear, precise advice.
