Our son Josh has been taking drum lessons from Shawn for almost 6 years now. It’s been really great to see how much Josh has improved since he started his lessons. Shawn has been able to keep Josh’s interest high and inspires him to work hard. We are always impressed to see how committed Shawn is to his students. Shawn’s professionalism is shown by his punctuality and productive use of lesson time. Josh always leaves his lesson feeling challenged. We feel Shawn takes pride in making sure Josh always completes his assignments and holds him to a high standard of learning. Shawn has been a great teacher and we would highly recommend him!

I’ve had a lifelong dream of playing the drums but had never sat down at a drum kit before I started taking lessons with Shawn.  Fortunately for me, Shawn’s talent as a musician and teacher is exceptional.  His commitment to teaching the fundamentals of technique and theory has given me a strong base from which to grow, all while learning songs that I enjoy, which has built my confidence.  He’s an experienced guide when  I’m trying something new, making it fun along the way.  Best of all, Shawn has shared a belief in my dream.  Thanks to him, it has come true!
