Overview

I'm a musician and composer with a PhD in music history and seven years of experience teaching everything from beginning piano to college-level music history. Above all, I love music and I love to teach! By instilling technical fundamentals and illuminating theoretical concepts, I will show you how to grasp what makes music tick and to apply the insights you gain through the study of music to making it your own.

My 8 year old son has been taking piano lessons with Sean for 6 months and really enjoys it. Sean is extremely patient, develops great rapport with kids and fosters a love of music. He is also always on time and very professional. I highly recommend him!
