Paul Van Dyck at the Fox Theatre, Centralia WA, c.2013
Paul played piano as a child before being introduced to the theatre organ by his father through LP recordings of Leonard Leigh and other organists. Paul worked as a music teacher, piano technician and nightclub musician until the late 1970s at which time he began his career as a medical transcriptionist. According to Paul, "this helped pay the bills for the last 30 years so I could continue to play music."
