Paul Barry

  • Paul began his musical journey on the drums at the age of 11 when he began lessons. He quickly became obsessed and played constantly throughout High School and University; both in rock bands as well as local orchestras and theatre groups. Never one to focus on just one thing, Paul also began to teach himself guitar and bass.

    He has since toured with various groups across North America, The UK, Australia and New Zealand. His music has been featured in commercials, TV and Film. Since early 2013, Paul can be found in his adopted home of Auckland, where he is actively gigging, teaching and doing sessions and workshops. He is currently teaching drum kit, guitar, bass and keyboard as well as being a band mentor at a number of schools. Paul has a real passion for teaching music and it shows. A kind and patient teacher, he is able to connect with students of any age across a range of instruments and styles of music.

    In recent years, he won first place in the MusicWorks drum off and released his first solo work (which he wrote, produced and performed all the tracks ) under the moniker "The Ever Wandering." He's also quite busy playing at weddings and events with various bands and duos.

  • Our son Rowan has been learning music with Paul 6 six years now. He started on Drums and then also joined up on guitar about 3 years ago. Rowan was also fortunate enough to be involved with the school band that Paul runs over the past couple of years. Paul is very passionate about giving his students the best. He really takes their musical tastes onboard and tries to cater to that as much as possible. Paul pushes the kids to be the best they can and is very supportive of his students. He has helped to drive Rowan’s passion for music and we appreciate that Rowan has been lucky to have Paul teach him.

  • Paul is an amazing music teacher! He taught my son for over 2 years. First drums and then drums and guitar and now he teaches my daughter guitar and school band. Both my kids have loved having Paul as their music teacher. My daughter says, ‘He is very kind and helps her with whatever she is stuck on and makes music very fun. My son says, ‘He’s really good, he’s super encouraging and teaches them songs they like’. He is patient with the kids and his communication with the parents is excellent. I’d highly recommend Paul if your child is keen to learn music!


  • My son has had group drum lessons with Paul through Musiqhub since Year 2 and then private guitar & amp and drum lessons till he was year 10. Not only is Paul an amazing artist himself, he is also an excellent tutor.
    Lessons with Paul were fun and he took a genuine interest in my son's skill development.
    Paul was very professional, patient, and approachable and still fun, making lessons enjoyable and we always felt comfortable in discussing any concerns.
