Interested in music lessons?

Sean travels nationally and internationally as a composer and sound artist, presenting his work at academic conferences and underground music venues alike. Having earned his Ph.D. in Music Composition from the University of Florida in 2013 and his M.A. in Electroacoustic Music from Dartmouth College in 2007, Sean offers individual instruction in the following subject areas:

  • Composition (both instrumental and electronic)
  • Digital Audio Production (using ProTools, Logic, and Ableton Live)
  • Electronica styles (ambient, dubstep, trap, techno, house, IDM, etc.)
  • Sound Design
  • Music Programming (in Max and SuperCollider)
  • Digital Music Performance (w/MIDI controllers, Ableton Push, etc.)
  • Live Sound Engineering
  • Music Theory
Interested beginners and advanced practitioners are both welcome. Sean adopts a flexible and indivudalized pedegogy by tailoring his instruction to the interests, deficits, and goals of the student. One aspect of Sean's program that does remain consistent, however, is an emphasis on a diversity of roles and approaches to contemporary music-making. The student will always be pushed to make connections, explore unfamiliar territory, and apply existing knowledge in creative ways.
