Hello! My name is Sean H and I am very passionate about music, and about helping my students accomplish their musical goals. I have been teaching for a little over three years and also have experience as a section leader and band leader. I have received several musical awards, including the prestigious Louis Armstrong Jazz Award, and I am currently working towards a degree in Jazz Studies at San Diego State University.

As a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and bandleader, I have experience in many different aspects of music that I pass along to my students. I give lessons on upright and electric bass, guitar, piano, saxophone, and clarinet. In addition to this, I offer songwriting, ear training, and music theory lessons.
