Song writing for me is a process.
To be able to go through the process, one has to have certain musical skills. If a song writer lacks those skills, I try to impart them with the missing elements. From there we learn to build a song from the ground up.

Do you have ideas for songs but wonder how to structure them into complete songs? Do you hear great tunes in your head but not know how to fit them to chords? Are you puzzled by how weave a magical melody to match your lyrics? Stumped by limited rhyme possibilities or awkward phrasing?
Perhaps you could benefit by having a seasoned songwriter as a mentor to coach you in creating beautiful songs in your own unique style. That's where I can help.

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.

Carl is a wonderful instructor. I may get a little overzealous at times, but he’s always patient and he indulges my imagination of being Kenny Dee. :)
LaRon Archibald
GREAT INSTRUCTOR!!! Carl is very patient when teaching technique. I liked the approach he'd take to help me understand fingering and learning theory behind what I was doing. Just unfortunate covid 19 came and disrupted my in-home teachings.....I'd recommend him to anybody looking for an good instructor.
