Shaun

Say hello to Shaun! He is a drum and guitar tutor here at Dronfield Music Tuition. He has a passion for music and loves teaching it. If you’re looking for an expert in drums and guitar look no further!

Shaun picked up a guitar in his later school years and didn’t look back. Influenced by the Pop-Punk and Rap-Metal scene of the early 00’s he discovered he had a taste for all things music. After venturing into the original music scene he went on to gain a Distinction in BTEC Popular Music and a Rockschool Grade 8 in drums. Following this, he decided that performing covers was the route to go down and successfully toured the UK with the Show-Band 70s Express.

With his 15 years performing experience, you can find him spending most of his time playing with two different bands all over the UK. He can be seen performing with Events band ‘Monday Night Reruns’ or the Premier Function Band ‘Wired’ playing covers from The Beatles to Queen, The Kinks to Kings of Leon and many others. You will also find him as a regular face helping out with the very successful 12th Fret Tuition 10 week guitar workshops. His tuition experience has been focussed around private 1-1 lessons with students of all ages. He takes into account student styles and influences to tailor a personal experience.

Shaun is thorough, friendly and supportive. He can teach all ages and levels and is excited to meet you!

A little bit more about Shaun:

  • Favourite album: “That’s a tough one! Can I have two?! It will have to be either Guns and Roses ‘Appetite for Destruction’ or Aerosmiths ‘Permanent Vacation”
  • Can’t live without: “Apart from obviously Music and my Fender Stratocaster it would probably be Football!”
  • Break-time snack: “I’d have to say a sneaky few Harribo Tangfastics to keep me going”
  • Fun fact about Shaun: “I also work for Sheffield United, not playing up front unfortunately, but I sell Programs on a match day”
