About Paul

Paul Tauterouff is a highly respected guitarist, live sound, studio recording engineer and guitar teacher living in upstate New York.

In 2007 Paul was hand-picked by Tom Hess to become co-manager of the Music Careers Mentoring Program.

In late 2007, Paul's song "Frozen Heart" was released on the Chronicles: City Of Sound compilation CD with 10,000 CD's distributed worldwide.

Guitar Player "Frozen Heart" received a positive review from editor-in-chief Michael Molenda in Guitar Player Magazine's August 2007 issue.

Michael said, "Tauterouff does everything right on this rather conventional, yet buoyant and melodic instrumental. His tone is fat and present, he makes judicious use of harmony lines to keep things interesting, and he holds back on the jamming until the end. It's a nice lesson in restraint, and it's also tasty as hell."

Paul has been actively involved in instructional guitar products, most recently Innovative Arpeggio Phrasing for Metal Players.

Paul is also available for studio work, private lessons & webcam lessons. For up to date information on the latest happenings visit the "News" page.
