I am a former worship Pastor (11 years) who raised up worship leaders and musicians through the church. I am currently in Tennessee to be close to family, my wife's health and for relationships in the Christian Music Industry. I have released several songs nationally that can be viewed here:
I am a part of the Christian Music Industry Academy and lead worship locally as well as out of state. My wife and I have a desire to raise up musicians. I mainly help people become better worship leaders but I am able to teach basic guitar, drums, songwriting and keyboard lessons.

Shawn is a very gifted songwriter! His attention to melody and theology within his music is amazing. He has helped me greatly!

Drum · In studio

Shawn has the innate ability to help you extract the music and musical ability inside of you. He's got great feel, timing and loves teaching and playing drums. He's got the bigger picture in mind when it comes to the song(s) you might want to learn or play and helps you get to the spot where the song becomes a part of you.
