I've been playing bass professionally in pop, rock, and jazz settings for several years, and strive to teach all of my students how to best express themselves musically. If you would like to play in a band, learn how to write songs, or even learn to improvise, I can help you achieve your musical goals.

About Sean H.

Hello! My name is Sean H, and I am very passionate about helping my students accomplish their musical goals. I have been teaching for over six years and also have extensive experience as a performer. I have received several musical awards, including the prestigious Louis Armstrong Jazz Award and have a Bachelor's Degree in Jazz Studies from San Diego State University.

Students of mine have gone on to study music in college as well as perform in various honor bands. It would be a joy to help you progress as a musician and an artist.

Sean was really on the spot with us. I am a beginning strings instructor, and my son didn't want to take lessons from anyone but me. Not only did Sean win me over with his pedagogy, but he won my son over as well.
