Master of Fine Arts Piano Performance, Tulane University
I love life, and piano is a huge part of my life. I teach students of all ages and levels, and I'm looking forward to finding talented, passionate, and hard-working students here. I am very proud of receiving my Master of Fine Arts in Piano Performance under world renowned concert and recording artist, Faina Lushtak (Moscow Conservatory).
In their lessons, students are taught how to approach every piece of music confidently, economically, and artistically. I help my students reach the highest level of taste and musicianship, and my teaching methods propel students to learn more difficult repertoire in less time. My Master’s Thesis focused on the dynamic, interdependent relationship between movement and sound. Deconstructing piano technique into simple choreographic units helps students learn faster and play more expressively. I also teach the fundamentals of music theory through electronic music composition, if the student is interested.
Ultimately I want this to be fun, but I require dedication, consistent practice, and a positive attitude. Parents, don't worry! Every student has a unique way of balancing hard work and having fun. Students of all ages will be encouraged to participate in competitions and the year end recital.
Let me tell you more about me! I am crazy about traveling! Some of my favorite places around the world are Siem Reape in Cambodia, Gotland in Sweden, and Kalymnos in Greece. One of my favorite things about traveling is seeing all the inspiring artwork made by the amazing, diverse people living on this planet.

Sean is a world class instructor. Sean was patient and attentive ensuring I mastered a skill or song before we moved on. His knowledge of playing shines through as he is teaching, while infusing joy with the practice. My confidence in playing has grown tremendously since taking lessons with Sean and I highly recommend him for your future lessons! Sean is a wonderful instructor, pianist, and friend.+ Read More
Fantastic experience. Sean was incredibly atuned to my goals. I'll definitely be working with him again.
Wow, Sean is an amazing pianist and teacher. I am so glad I started lessons with him. I took lessons as a kid, but stopped in high school because I wasn't improving and my teacher didn't give me the music I wanted to play. Now as an adult, I'm so excited to be getting back into lessons. In just a few weeks with Sean, I saw a huge improvement. He gave me a classical piece that I surprisingly love now, and we also worked on a couple of pop songs that I always wanted to play. I highly recommend him. He's really funny too!+ Read More
