About Me


Hi, my name is Sean-Lee. I’m a professional multi-instrumentalist, qualified educator, and grade examiner based in Brighton with over two decades of experience. I offer high-quality lessons across various styles and genres for a select number of students. Following a consultation, lesson plans are tailored for students of any age to support the achievement of their musical aspirations.

I aim to create a sense of excitement in every lesson whilst ensuring that students build a strong foundation in technique, music theory, and aural skills. The journey of mastering an instrument should be an exhilarating experience that stems from personal passion.  With personalised guidance and a dedication to fostering your talents, each lesson will be a stepping stone towards achieving your musical dreams.

I’m an advocate for the empowering effect of collaborative music-making. For this reason, I usually accompany students on a complementary instrument during sessions. My experience is that this approach fosters a supportive environment, effectively transforming solo practice into a harmonious interaction that reduces performance pressure and boosts confidence.  Overall, I aim to create an environment where you feel comfortable expressing your musicality and trying new ideas.

Whether you’re taking your first steps into the world of music or seeking to elevate your existing skills, I welcome students at all proficiency levels. From the fundamentals to advanced techniques, I tailor lessons to your unique needs and learning styles. My innovative, student-centred teaching style reflects my experience teaching students of all ages and abilities.

I have a passion for music and teaching. I am a multi-instrumentalist with over twenty years of experience in live performance and studio recording. I am the head tutor of a Brighton-based music school for under 16s and an ABRSM examiner. However, I delight in taking on a limited number of private students passionate about achieving their musical goals.

My relevant qualifications include qualified teacher status (PGCE), a first-class MSC in Music, Mind and Brain, a first-class BA in Music Performance, an HND in Professional Music Practice, an Advanced BTEC in Popular Music and an A-Level in Music Technology.  I have worked in and directed numerous musical projects, including theatre, film, choirs and teaching. My stylistic strengths lay in Contemporary Gospel, Smooth Jazz, Soulful House and Jazz Fusion.

I can help you gain a deep understanding of music theory and how to use it to build your musical vocabulary and enhance your artistic expression. I can help you prepare for exams. As an examiner and someone who has worked in schools and colleges, assessing student performances, I know what examiners are looking for. I can also help incorporate technology to aid your development and creative practice. 

My teacher training and experience have taught me that students learn best when they make meaning with the material they are studying. My experience studying and playing various music styles means I can build your skills from a place you find enjoyable. When you feel comfortable, we can slowly introduce new styles and techniques into your playing. If you feel you would like to try another instrument, that’s no problem, too. Finding what works for you and building upon it is the main goal.
