Pauly’s Productions opens in Delano

delano2WICHITA — Today is the first day of business for Pauly’s Productions, a new studio at 827 W. Maple in Delano.

Paul Jacobs started the business to offer studio time and lessons.

Joshua Wiley is the full-time instructor for guitar and bass.

Jacobs is looking to bring on a piano teacher next.

The business will be open seven days a week. Jacobs thinks he’d like to offer studio time on the weekends and lessons during the week.

The studio has a vocal booth and a drum room.

“It is all state-of-the-art,” Jacobs says. “I record everything in high definition. We have both digital and analog equipment.”

Wiley says lessons will be in “everything from classical to metal to music theory — everything.”

Instruments can be provided for the studio time and lessons.

“We understand the economy is kind of in the dumps right now,” Wiley says.

He has a degree in special education and would like to offer some kind of musical opportunity to special-needs children.

“I’ve got the patience for it, but I’m not sure how to go about it,” Wiley says.

He’d like to hear from parents about what they might like.

“The main thing we try to do is to have a good time while being productive,” Jacobs says.
