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.

As a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, composer, 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.

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.

I have been writing songs from a very young age. As I have learned more about music, I've found that there are unlimited possibilities in the realm of songwriting. Helping others write songs is a passion of mine, and with a solid grounding in music theory and with over a hundred songs to my name, I am well qualified to teach songwriting.

Whether you want to write pop, rock, funk, jazz, or anything else, I can give you the tools to create wonderful music.
