Then Paula went on to learn the bagpipes, guitar, clarinet and the saxophone. Paula went on to Trinity College of Music London achieving a medal for grade 1 with 99% honors in 1978.This led to her attending the Royal Academy of Music to concentrate on  piano/keyboards and accordion and started to singing. Paula is a professor in music and is highly respected by the music industry and Paula trials out new electronic keyboards for an Italian keyboard production company.
