Great first lesson! Got me going and feeling comfortable. He has vast experience, and comfortable teaching style, but keeps me moving forward. Very Happy!
Shawn is very well informed on music theory. I have had discussions with him on numerous occasions, quite enlightening.
He is a very patient teacher and really goes the extra mile when it comes to explaining things I'm having trouble with.
