About Sean

I am a graduate of Rhode Island College in Providence, having earned a Bachelor of Arts in Music. I focused my time on learning before I decided to be a tutor and private teacher. I have been seriously teaching for about 6 months now and have benefited from it musically and personally. My two young piano students have been with me since January, and the parent has used me as a reference for teaching other students.

I use a variety of resources for teaching, including both textbooks and electronic resources. My teaching style is effective in that it is age appropriate, and while I do expect self-discipline, I teach children to be respectful in a patient manner that is non-demeaning, nor frightening. I love tutoring because I get to see the progress my students make. I love to see them "get it" and for the perfectionist, not getting it can be frustrating. I help them "get it" by explaining previous concepts, and how they apply to new concepts. In other words, I do help them, but I make them think as well. Teaching and tutoring is a mutually rewarding concept for the teacher and the student.

I have 5 years of voice study at the college level. I have performed gigs at various churches, and have been a regular professional member of St. Mary's Church in Stonington, CT for 3 years. I acquired documented "Piano Proficiency" as part of my degree program, which consisted of musical vocabulary, transposing techniques, sight reading skills, etc. These skills apply to both voice and piano. I have appeared as a keyboardist/pianist on several occasions.

Please contact me if you would like to know more about my services. I travel for all piano and voice lessons. For tutoring, I am willing to meet in person, in a library, at your home or mine. I hope to create a long lasting musical and educational relationship with you.
