The teaching of tunes is the unravelling of how one hears a tune. Paul prefers to teach without the use of written notes, though sheet music may occasionally be used as a supplement.

When listening to Irish Music one hears phrases which often have little or no connection with the written line, yet each represents a logical unit in itself.

Paul teaches tunes by identifying and breaking down these units further, then gradually he rebuilds them along with the students. In this way the natural flow of the music is appreciated more than if learned purely from the written form.
