Overview

I have spent the last four years studying and working to become a better classical pianist with the last two being at Whittier College. I am currently a Junior pursuing a BA in Music and am looking to not only expand my musical knowledge but teach others to share the same passion for music that I do. I have been teaching privately for almost six months now and have had success with students as young as six and as old as sixteen. All ages are welcome to learn something they have always wanted to try.

Teaching Philosophy

My teaching style is to provide a one lesson per week in which I teach a few pages of a lesson book and have the students study and begin to play a piece. In music, nothing comes easily to everyone and there is a commitment that is need both from the student and the teacher. In order for my students to grow into better players I stress that messing up during lesson time is not the end, but only lays down the foundation to learning that perfection does not make a good pianist; practicing and making mistakes does.

Sean is a very patient and encouraging teacher for our 10 year old son. He noticed some bad habbits of our son's playing and gave helpful tips for practices to correct those habbits. He often explains things in creative ways with patience and kindness. Our son has definitely improved in his piano skill, but more so now he is motivated in playing. We look forward to more of Sean's creative teaching styles and hope he could bring more challenges to our rather passive son.
