As an educator, Sean has accumulated over 10 years of experience from teaching absolute beginners, casual learners, and advanced students of all ages in individual and group settings in Switzerland, Singapore, Malaysia, and of course the UK.
Recent notable pedagogic activities include coaching and residency engagements with the Marlborough College, Cardinal Vaughan Memorial School, In Harmony Lambeth, and the Wind Band Association of Singapore.
Sean speaks fluent English, Mandarin, and French therefore lessons can be conducted in any of these languages. His specialty is in late Classical to late Romantic European repertoire and he is able to teach contemporary music and music of other genres.
Yes, music lessons should be fun and engaging, but equally important are basic musical foundations, technical rudiments, and perseverance for progress to happen. To Sean, ideal students are those who are patient, willing and able to work hard, demonstrate grit, practise regularly and diligently, and those who trust the learning process.
Currently accepting students in Greater London and the peripheral areas.
