Trained by some of the world's foremost pedagogues and artists, including Douglas HumpherysAlicia de Larrocha, Maria Teresa Monteys, and Tamás Ungár, Paul Sánchez has a passion for passing on the tradition that has been passed on to him through his own teachers.

Dr. Sánchez served as Director of Piano Studies at the College of Charleston from 2016–2023, and his prior faculty appointments included Baylor University and Wheaton College. His teaching experience extends into the world of non-profits, as well, as he taught young artists through the Dakota Sky Foundation––which he co-founded with Andrew Reinartz––from 2007–2018, and through the Charleston Chamber Music Intensive, which he co-founded in 2017. 

He has presented master classes and taught as a guest teacher and clinician at universities across the United States, including Arizona State University (Tempe), Eastern Illinois University (Charleston), Indiana University Jacobs School of Music (Bloomington), University of Mississippi (Oxford), University of Nebraska (Omaha), University of South Carolina (Columbia), University of South Dakota (Vermillion), and University of Tennessee (Knoxville). 

Sánchez particularly enjoys university residencies during which he works with students over a number of days. In guest residencies at the University of Mississippi (Oxford) and at Lebanon Valley College (Pennsylvania), he was artist-in-residence during three-day residencies during which he worked with piano and voice students in coachings and lessons as they learned and rehearsed Sánchez' music in preparation for a public performance alongside the composer.

“[Sánchez] engages with you completely and effortlessly, and you are captivated by his generosity and sincerity. Then you see him teach, and you wish you were that lucky student. And when you hear him perform, you witness all these aspects come together, for his performances reveal the artistry, integrity, and warmth that are the essence of Paul Sánchez”

–– Tony Caramia, Director of Piano Pedagogy, Eastman School of Music
