Playing and learning an instrument is beneficial to ones being because it is a great way to express ones self and it's an excellent stress reliever. It's also an amazing feeling playing an instrument you love to listen to.

Learning any instrument could be daunting at first because there is so much to learn and without any help, could feel overwhelming and hopeless. Do not fret because I am here to assist you!
I have studied many music genres all across the board and have a professional knowledge and comprehension of the theory encompassed behind them. Every lesson is crafted for each student in specific areas they have interest in while being done at the students own pace.

My background history:

I immersed myself in music at a very young age, studying classical piano and theory. In my teenage years I took the initiative to learn guitar and began by purchasing my own guitar and books and taught myself to play electrical and classical guitar. I followed my passion and continued my studies at Columbia College and graduated with a bachelors degree in Instrumental Performance.

Post-graduation, I have experienced playing in multiple bands, performing in concerts, teaching piano and guitar ranging in all levels at a music center and private home and enjoying some traveling.

Everything I have learned will be reflected in my lesson methodology and will help you learn to play proficiently in a timely manner. I look forward to meeting new prospective students while having fun teaching them music.

For my first lesson, he was patient when he needed to be and moved me forward at my pace. I'm looking forward to my next lesson.

My first lesson went great. Although I am starting from knowing absolutely nothing about playing piano, Sebastian was patient, and did a great job at showing and explaining everything so that I could understand.

Sebastian comes to our home and teaches my 9 year old daughter piano lessons every week. After a bad experience with a music center, she plateaued and was losing interest so we decided to try at home and it has worked out remarkably. She is enjoying learning with Sebastian and no longer views it as boring or a chore. He is so patient with children and has the ability to reach out and help her understand and make it fun. She has become very advanced and has taken huge leaps. We are very blessed to have found such a brilliant young man so passionate about teaching. His personality is very outgoing, polite and always wears a smile. He manages to find a way to guage her interest and keep her motivated. We are very pleased with his services and highly recommend him to anyone who's interested in learning to play. He is a true music professional. Thank you so much for all your help!
