My daughter grew so much in such a short period of time with Sean. My daughter enjoyed every session with Sean. He is kind and considerate and instills so much confidence and positive affirmation in his students. He truly cares and it comes out in his teaching, we have been very blessed to have had him as a teacher.

I ABSOLUTELY recommend taking voice lessons from Sean. I had studied classical singing in college, and then Sean was able to increase my range further and bring out even more clear and beautiful tone to my voice than any vocal coach or professor that I had had. I also wanted to learn to sing in my mixed voice and chest voice with other styles of singing, and in one lesson learned to belt and sing notes strongly that I never thought I'd be able to! My 10 year old son LOVED his lessons from Sean too, he learned so much, has tons of confidence now, a vibrato, and great skills and techniques. Not only is Sean an incredible teacher, but he is also a very kind person who makes the lessons fun and helps you feel comfortable.

Sean is a remarkable voice coach! My daughter learned so much under his instruction - things she hadn't learned elsewhere!

I started lessons with Sean when I had no vibrato and believed I would never be able to belt. My first lesson he had me belting and through the next year expanded my range and developed my vibrato, breathing, placement, and head voice. Most importantly, throughout our lessons I was comfortable with cracking or messing up while we worked on my singing skills, which is necessary to really improve. Overall, Sean is an amazing vocal coach and I 10/10 recommend him.

I first saw Sean sing/perform as Captain Hook years ago. At that time I said to myself, "I want to take voice from that guy." Fast forward 15 years or so I found myself standing at a piano with 'that guy' as my voice instructor. Check another one off my bucket list. Sean is the type of teacher who isn't afraid to work with you until you get it right. He will pull the best out of you while breaking down bad habits. His technique for teaching vibrato helped me above anything else I've ever tried. If the opportunity to work with Sean is ever afforded you, take it! He is a consummate professional both in terms of talent and work habits and an all-around great guy.

I have had such a good experience with Sean. I have had some of the best vocal training from him! He has done SO much for me, like teaching me techniques, range expansion, and widen my song list to songs i never thought i could sing! He is definitely the best decision for vocal training.

I've worked with Sean in musical theater. I've known some of his students as young actors at the local theater where I am accompanist. The development of their vocal technique and presentation has been incredible to observe. Some have gone on to theater programs in college. Sean has prepared them for this. Until they are ready leave college, he, as musical director, nurtures their talent as actors and singers in our local musical theater productions. Thy love him as much as he loves them. I highly recommend Sean as a vocal teacher.

My two daughters and I were able to work with Sean over the last few years. All three of us agree that what we learned from him was priceless. He gave us confidence through gentle guidance. His expertise allowed us to find voices that we didn't even know were there. I have taken many voice lessons throughout my life. Sean is by far the instructor that I saw the most progress with.

Sean is ,hands down, the absolute best in the country..maybe the world! He has an innate ability to pull out of any child or adult what they never dreamed was inside of them. He truly loves and cares about his students which enables them to have the confidence to reach for the top. His integrity is unparalleled and his humble spirit makes anyone who has been taught by him want more and more. Anyone who has been fortunate enough to have been instructed by him knows how truly blessed they are!

I've done lessons with Sean for several years now! He's an amazing vocal coach and I've improved my technique remarkably with his coaching! He's helped me with multiple of my musical theatre performances and was a huge part of my qualification for national competition in a solo category! I will always highly recommend him as a vocal coach! He is kind, encouraging, and extremely qualified!

Sean worked with my pre-teen daughter for several years, and taught her so many techniques. We were very pleased with the progress she made under his supervision. She learned so much from his guidance. Sean is the best!

Sean is the best in the business!
I have been training with Sean for about 4 years and counting.
He has helped me use my voice to its full potential and to start working on operatic technique. I love his classes!
