I have been teaching songwriting for over four years. These lessons are wholly rewarding as I love to conduct it as a "jam session" of sorts, helping my students frame their ideas into versus-chorus form, as well as helping them with basic music theory and sheet music transferring digitally with Sibelius 7 or in paper form.

I was apprehensive in the beginning for my first in person ukulele lesson. I didn’t want to feel stupid or be a slow learner. But Chris Immediately made me feel comfortable and by the end of the lesson I felt I had made a friend. He is so knowledgeable and walked me through at my pace. After watching endless hours of YouTube ukulele videos, I finally understood the concepts with Chris’s help. Can’t wait till my next lesson with him.

I consider 'song writing' one chapter in the larger context of composition. Composition involves utilizing the various musical elements (rhythm, melody, harmony, timbre, form) to create a musical work. Great composers are very accomplished musicians, as are great improvisors. The art of improvisation is the art of spontaneous composition.

All my advanced students study composition in some form, as part of learning their instrument. My 'composition' students usually learn chord function theory (12 assignment course) and are generally proficient enough on a chordal instrument (piano or guitar) to at least play simple chord progressions.

One aspect of composition studies involves analyzing a variety of songs to see what makes them work. We also approach writing from a variety of points of view. As with learning a musical instrument, the art of song writing and composition can result in a lifetime of exciting musical exploration.

I bring to lessons an expansive education in music performance, theory, and composition in different styles, as well as the ability to explain and display the necessary skills in a variety of ways for a diversity of learning styles.

I teach an aggressive curriculum, but one that is tailored to each student's individual strengths and weaknesses, and I always remain gentle and patient while guiding my students through the rewarding process of learning to create music.

I enjoy so much about my work, and here are just a few elements:

-Sharing my love for music with those eager to learn the art for themselves.

-The moments when the student finds expression the music, transcending the notes as they're written on the page.

-Seeing my students perform at their recitals, where they share everything they have learned.

-Meeting so many incredible people who are all connected by a love for music!

Our daughter Sarah has been taking piano lessons with Sean for 5 years, both in person and now by Zoom. Sean is a wonderful teacher, firm and focused, yet kind and encouraging. A lot gets accomplished in each lesson and Sarah has advanced steadily over time. She looks forward to her lesson each week. We would recommend Sean to anyone looking for a piano teacher for their child.

I am very happy that I chose her.

Throughout each lesson, I learned something new about myself. She was very patient, informative, and always had good things to say about you and your acting/voice skills. She helped awaken my creative theatre mind again and I’m thankful for that. I highly recommend taking her if you want a good experience in learning or enhancing your acting/voice skills!

"Technology today is incredible. I'm in Norway, Fawn is in Los Angeles. Where else could I find a quality teacher with a couple of hit songs help me at my craft? If it weren't for the internet I would have never found such a talented songwriter to help me tighten my songs. I love, love, LOVE the time I spend with Fawn hashing out my songs to record with my band in the studio. She is so gifted, easy going, precise and fun. She really respects keeping the integrity and emotions of my songs and is good at keeping people open to changes that are necessary to make a mediocre song great."

"Enormous Student base an affirmation of an Enormously Successful Teacher

Fawn is a warrior for justice. She rights all the wrongs of other teachers bad coaching. She turned my sons bad piano habits around in just 2 lessons! My daughter's bad vocal habits changed after the first lesson! I have never seen anything like it. We are grateful to have found her. I now have confidence that my children are in the best hands possible. I love the energy she puts into her recitals and the enormous student base she has is an affirmation that she is doing great things in California!

Fawn is easy to talk to and she brings up thought provoking topics I would have never thought to write about. We work in Google Docs so I can see as she makes adjustments and changes. I am learning more than I thought imaginable and my
