About Shane

I am a graduate of a Berklee College of Music Masters program. I received my Masters degree in Scoring for Film, Television and Video Games. Before I attended Berklee, I graduated from BYU-Idaho with a degree in classical composition. I am now working as a composer for films, video games, and other visual media, as well as a mockup artist.

I have experience in both teaching and tutoring. Most of this took place at BYU-Idaho where I taught beginning, intermediate, and advanced music theory classes, as well as tutoring for various teachers' students. I absolutely love tutoring. It gives me the opportunity to see students grow, understand new concepts, become better at what they love, and overall, grow as a person.

While I was at BYU-Idaho, I was a tutor for music students helping them with their sight singing, ear training, etc. I have performed in various orchestras throughout US, Canada, and Europe, playing both classical and film music genres. I am proficient in Digital Performer, Logic Pro X, and I am Protools certified. This knowledge came from my own personal work/study, and classes at Berklee and BYU. I am also very knowledgeable with sample libraries, including Native Instruments, VSL, and others, as well as having programming knowledge for Kontakt.

Whether you are in high school, college, or music is just a hobby, I can help out! Contact me for more information about music theory, ear training/sight singing, percussion, or music production lessons.
