I make learning the violin/viola fun; first and foremost. In addition to the awesome experience of learning with me, you will gain deep and valuable insights, into the violinistic technique, music theory/aural skills, general musicianship, improvising and so much more!

I am a professional concert violinist and educator, with over 2 decades of experience. I attended a very highly regarded music conservatory and have toured all over the world playing, as a chamber musician, orchestral player, and soloist. I have even worked with Stevie Wonder.

If you are interested in the violin/viola, or are an established violinist/violist I can help you to take your progress and skills to the next level! Reach out to me and let me know!

About Shawn L.

Music is a demanding and challenging enterprise, but that does not mean it cannot be fun. With the appropriate guidance, the musical journey can be both exciting and a process- where we enjoy progress and that progress fuels greater skill, motivation, fun, and discipline.

No two students are exactly alike, so the instruction and curriculum is catered individually to match the student's temperament, interests, and lifestyles. I want each student to get exactly what they need from the experience-as quickly and with as much joy as possible.

I have been teaching for nearly 20 years, all around the world, from Ecuador, to Rhode Island. I have created specific curriculum for students of all ages, including group classes and individual lessons. I know how to reach students where they are and work diligently and intelligently with each one, to, achieve the kinds of results that last and that inspire.

Let me assist you in your musical journey, where together we work and enjoy musical growth and overall fulfillment! You will have a blast in a safe environment where you are free to be yourself and to make mistakes; mistakes actually help us to grow! Reach out to me and lets get started today!

My daughter was reluctant and shy; and had trouble fully engaging in the process. We met
Shawn, and she began to open up, gain confidence, and take charge of her learning herself, and we hardly recognize the person she has become. We are so lucky to have Shawn in our lives!
