On fairly young age Paul Eerhart discovered his passion for playing the guitar. It came in a rush when he was 16 years old and heard Mark Knopfler and the Dire Straits playing on an English radio station. Soon he got fascinated by various guitar geniuses leaving a mark on his individual style. Santana, Al Di Meola, Paco de Lucia, Robben Ford, Larry Carlton as well as Joe Pass, Steve Lukather, Mike Stern and Scott Henderson – to name a few. Later on Paul studied at the Academy of Music in Rotterdam (Rotterdams Conservatorium), followed master classes with Pat Metheny and Garrison Fewell. He had the privilege of attending a number of private lessons and master classes given by Joe Pass (also known from his collaboration with Ella Fitzgerald).
