I've been drumming for longer than my parent's care to remember! I've got a BM from McNally Smith College of Music, tons of playing and teaching experience on the kit and other percussion instruments, and I LOVE to play drums. Lets get together and see what life can offer you with the life of drums!!

About Sean P.

YOU DO NOT NEED ANY EQUIPMENT!!! read below for the full scoop :) Please and thank you :)

Get the best service money can buy. I bring the teaching studio to you. I'm one of the only teachers out there who will bring and set up a small drum set to EVERY lesson!! It is the perfect set up for a young beginner to get a feel for drumming before mom and dad commit to buying that shiny new drum set. It also allows me to play along with you and demonstrate things more seamlessly, making the lesson more efficient. But wait... there's more :)

My services offered are pretty fantastic. but the lessons are only as good as the teacher teaching them right?

I think music is so much more than a hobby. Its a way of thinking and a way of doing. I believe that any person who plays an instrument has enriched their lives by doing so. As a teacher, I focus on providing the student with the tools they need to pursue their avenue of music. There's no cookie cutter formula for students. Every student get's their own personalized lesson plan. Every aspect of the lesson is totally tailored to your needs.

So lets get playing. We'll both have a blast and I bet we'll BOTH learn some things too!!

Current drummer for Avenue Army (alternative rock band based in Saint Paul)

YOU DO NOT NEED TO HAVE A DRUM SET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I will arrive promptly at our lesson start time with a small bop-kit and will have it set up for you by the 11th minute of our lesson.

I will have EVERYTHING you need. All you've gotta have is a good attitude and some open floor space!!


and guess what... YOU DON"T NEED A BASS EITHER. I've got a bass and an amp. ready and waiting for you to pluck around on. Totally hassle free!!

Great Drummer, Great Teacher

I went to McNally Smith with Sean and can say with confidence that you will get quality lessons from him. He's knowledgeable on subject matter, and a great teacher.

Good teacher

I have been taking private lessons from Sean Pierce for the past 2 months and I personally feel more comfortable and capable behind a drum set. He's knowledgeable about the technical and creative aspects of drumming and he presents exercises and ideas in relative terms for those less experienced in music terminology. Overall a good teacher for beginners to more advanced students.
