Paul Cruz - Ukulele teacher
Paul started playing music at the age of 16 with a bass given to him by his father. Later on that year (2003) he joined the Rancho Canyon Music front desk staff and eventually became the front desk manager. After four years of working in the shop Paul started teaching outside the store, then at the school during Guitar Summer Camp. He quickly started getting requests to teach at RCM, and he’s been a music instructor here ever since!
Paul has played in original bands and has played venues including the Coach House, Chain Reaction, and the Whiskey A Go-Go, among many others! Paul has recently taken a break from playing in bands to focus on his students but still attends various “Jam Nights” around town and can be found on Sundays playing at Hope Crossing Church in San Juan Capistrano!
His dad is Bobby Cruz, a well known local professional musician, who has previously played and recorded with the Righteous Brothers, and currently plays at Saddleback Church in the "Overdrive" Tent.
Paul's standard tuition rate is $40 per lesson - 1 lesson each week for 30 minutes
