About Sean

I have taught guitar and piano for several years to kids and peers alike.
I'm enthusiastic about learning new instruments having picked up the saxophone, clarinet, and violin since being in school.
I aim to inspire composers with music from the past and ideas of the present.
I love to teach the physics in the production of sound and art of recording of music as well as our understanding of how music is understood by the brain.

Music is more than technique, it's a way in which we think and process the world.

I've studied a variety of fields within music that give me a range of understanding.
Having graduated with a composition degree, I was able to focus on my main instrument guitar, but also have the opportunity to learn new ones on the way.
Additionally, I am currently completing my sound engineering degree and aim to record all of my own works.
I have been writing songs for years and love to share ideas and methods to anyone and everyone

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Composition (Music)

Graduated from DePaul University with a Degree in Music Composition. I have worked with many artists and friends and taught new ideas I'd been introduced to. I approach tutoring as a unique experience to each student based off their past experience and what inspires them.

Guitar

In my studies of composition at DePaul University, I studied both classical and jazz guitar each year. I have been playing acoustic guitar for 8 years and can read music and tablature with ease. Guitar is the first instrument I began teaching on, and have been for the past 5 years.

Music Production

During my study of composition at DePaul, I was simultaneously pursuing a degree in Sound Recording Technology, which I will complete as of this coming year. I also have studied the physics of sound and intend to earn a physics minor. Currently, I am employed as an intern at Stonecutter Records where we record musicians everyday.

Songwriting

Before I was a composer, I wrote songs from the day I learned how to play the guitar. Through composition, I have explored new ways to write and structure songs. I have accumulated a plethora of ideas to inspire endless students.
