Fretboard Logic: Understanding the Guitar for Modern Jazz, Classical, Pop, and Rock.

Methodology

My focus is to identify each student's learning style and help them build a robust conceptual framework around their guitar playing. I help students understand music theory and harmony by providing valuable context and simplifying abstract and confusing details.

Background

I'm a professional Musician with 11 years teaching experience. I have a wide scope of musical interests and experience teaching a wide variety of styles and instruments. My creative strengths as a musician, a composer / producer, and my experience as a mentor to hundreds of students over the years have rounded me into a strong teacher.

I studied Jazz Guitar Performance at Humber College (B.mus).

Sean made the complex task of music production seem simple and accessible. By breaking it down into small simple steps he brought me from being a complete novice to be able to record, range and mix my own songs!

F
Fionn

Sean and I jam together (acoustic guitar) once a week, for three years now. He encourages me to bring songs I am interested in learning, and he always teaches some cool background stories about the songs/musicians. Sean sets goals and challenges for me that I feel are attainable and I appreciate his teaching style. He always plays along with me and watching him play definitely motivates me. I have sent a few friends to learn acoustic his way, and we all agree that Sean pretty awesome.
