Drummer Sean C., 31, started playing at age 7 when he began studying with Mark Foster, a local free-lance percussionist in the Denver area. After high school he enrolled at the Colburn Conservatory in LA, where he studied with Jack van Geem, former Principal Percussionist of the San Francisco Symphony. Since graduating and returning to Colorado, Sean has been freelancing and teaching extensively throughout the state. He has played musicals at several venues, including Buell Theater, Garner Galleria, Aurora Fox, Center Stage, PACE Center, Magic Moments Productions, Mizel Arts and Culture Center, and Littleton Town Hall Arts Center. He has also played with many local orchestras and bands, including Colorado Springs Philharmonic, Colorado Springs Chamber Orchestra, San Juan Symphony, Crested Butte Festival Orchestra, Opera Steamboat, Denver Municipal Band, Denver Philharmonic Orchestra, Inside the Orchestra, Centennial State Ballet, Lone Tree Symphony, and Arapahoe Philharmonic. Sean has also taught privately and in public schools, including Eaglecrest High School and Chaparral High School, for the last 9 years.

Sean is very knowledgeable. He goes above and beyond to share his knowledge in a way that is easy to digest. I really enjoy Sean as an instructor.
EX•CEL•LENT!!!! I'm surprised people like that are not better known when they demonstrate such skills, teaching abilities and character!!! Not only is Sean very kind, always positive, and extremely patient, but he also knows how to get you to understand whatever you set out to do and to succeed in the exercises he gives you. I HIGHLY recommend him!!!
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.
