Paul Vario Music is committed to helping students find themselves as musicians, and reach their full potential. On a weekly basis, Paul guides students of all ages and abilities. Everyone from aspiring players, skilled professionals and composers/producers take lessons at PVM. While playing music may hold different meanings and levels of importance for each student, they will all agree that making music makes people happy. “Helping people live better lives through music. Thats our passion.”

Paul Vario Music currently offers guitar lessons, piano lessons, bass lessons and audio recording lessons. All music lessons are private and held at the PVM studio in Bayside, Queens.

PVM requires a weekly time slot commitment from students.

Monthly payments are due at the first lesson of the month, for that month. This will ensure a student’s weekly time slot, and PVM will expect the student to be here for that time, every week, unless stated. Payment can be made via cash or check (made payable to Paul Vario Music).

Lesson Rates 
$140 a month for four 30 minute lessons

Cancellation Policy
Cancellations must be made 24 hours prior to the scheduled lesson to be eligible for a makeup lesson.
