Pauron credits his formative musical growth and training to Mrs. Mildred Strider, a former music teacher at Allen University in Columbia, South Carolina; Mrs. Margaret Thornton, a former choral director and teacher at C. A. Johnson High School; and Yarbrough and Cowan, a duo-pianist team and former professors at the University of Montevallo in Montevallo, Alabama.
Pauron holds a Bachelor of Music Degree from the University of South Carolina and a Master's in Missions from Regent University. He credits his development as an arranger to the foundation laid early in his career to be active in things of the Lord. He has been using his musical gifts in the church since age 14. Pauron recalls that there were a number of years of disappointing moments as he struggled to play by ear or from the heart as he was a classically trained musician. He is now thankful that he has attained a level of freedom at the piano to express praise to his Father in heaven.
Pauron acknowledges that the Lord used the love and support of his wife, April and daughter and son, Sierra and Steven, his sister Erika, brother, Harris and mother, Pauline, a host of relatives and friends, the Covenant Community Family, the Providence UMC Family and the great sacrificial giving of one who desires to remain anonymous.
