Shawn has over 12 years of music education, including both instrumental and vocal instruction. In addition to instruction in piano and guitar, he has studied African drums and is currently finishing up a minor in music at Cal State University at Hayward.
Volunteering to lead a teen worship ministry at church has given Shawn the joy of watching very shy young people grow more confident about themselves through team building and opportunities to share their musical talents.
Shawn loves teaching both acoustic and electric guitar at any level, as well as the first 3 years of piano or recorder. In April of 2011, Shawn completed the rigorous "Early Music Awareness Certification Program" here at The Music Place, which not only equipped him to teach group EMA classes, but also increased his ability in general as a music educator who freely expresses his energy, creativity and passionate heart for kids.
TEACHING LOCATIONS: Shawn
teaches guitar, piano, recorder, All Arts and Early Music Awareness at Sunnyvale West, Svle East, Main Office and
Camden/85 SJCRC locations.

"Our daughter, Melissa, loves her music class, and she looks forward to the recitals. She's made friends and become more confident. We'd recommend the Music Place to anyone. -- Melissa's parents, Kathy & Matt, Los Gatos" .
I tell everyone who will listen about the amazing introduction to music that our daughter is getting with the Music Place. People are always amazed when a 3-year old explains that she played an oboe last week and is going to play a piccolo next week! Most importantly, our daughter can't wait for music class & asks to go every day. -- The Pace Family
