Back to the basics: Music theory lessons with a 8 year experienced teacher
I have been teaching for about 8 years with students ranging from beginner to advanced. All ages are welcome! I also welcome all different styles of music from rock, to jazz, and even classical. Each lesson is catered specifically to the student. I want each student to be able to reach their own specific goals, while having the time of their life!

Sean has been working with my two sons (17 & 8) for the last six months. We have special circumstances and Sean has accommodated our needs with grace. It has been fun to hear my boys progress as he guides them through the workings of the kit (drum set), I didn't know it was called a kit either. He works with two kids back-to-back and adjust to the level they need to keep them interested and motivated. Rudiments, Reading the music, he gets it all in. If you want your new drummer to have a well-rounded and fun experience...give Sean a try.

I have had 5 lessons with Sean, so far, and have been very happy. Sean is encouraging and patient. Despite being fully virtual, he is still able to pick up on where adjustments in technique are needed and adequately describes how to make these adjustments without the luxury of being able to be face-to-face. Definitely recommend.

I can't say enough about Sean! He is funny and engaging. My 8 yo looks forward to his weekly online lessons and loves to practice. Sean presents material that is a perfect balance of challenging and achievable. It is so exciting to see my son's progress with the Djembe and his understanding of music theory grow. Sean is a fabulous find!
