About this pro
Shawn is a wonderful and patient piano teacher. My daughter had lessons as a younger child and needed a change as she moved beyond the beginner stage. She's been with Shawn for about 8 months and her playing has improved significantly. She enjoys practicing again and is motivated by his instruction. He's offering her just the right amount of challenge, creativity and encouragement. And this is a 12 year old I'm talking about (hello parents of tweeners and teenagers)! We also appreciate his highly organized website and timely communication. All around Shawn is a fantastic, solid professional who is passionate about music, seriously grounded in theory and very consistent in his instruction with youth. If you're considering music lessons with him, you will be lucky to get on his schedule.May 24, 2018Shawn M.'s reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge per lesson and bill monthly. My prices for private lessons are based on the value the student will get from having lessons which will carry through their entire lives. Things like confidence, patience, follow through, and determination as well as goal setting, are all elements practiced when learning to play an instrument. I have discounts for group lessons (students must sign up in groups of 2-4) I have discounts for prepayment of a quarter or 6 months at a time. I have a very flexible policy regarding missed lessons and make up lessons
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Initially we set up a meeting, talk about the way the studio and lessons work. Over our first few lessons we get to know each other and I try to assess how the new student responds to my instruction. I have always developed a good relationship with my students.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Principal oboe through college, Tacoma Youth Symphony, conductor of CAYSA, studied music composition at PLU.
