Private Music Education for the Modern World

Meet Shannon

Classically & Contemporary Trained Musician, Private Educator, and Coffee Enthusiast

My name is Shannon, and I’m your friendly, neighborhood private music teacher here in Saint Paul, MN.  I’m a Midwest girl at my core, born and raised just a hop, skip, and jump away in Northwest Wisconsin!  When I’m not working, you can usually find me reading in a cozy corner, enjoying the beautiful outdoors, or browsing a local yarn shop.

I am a classically trained flutist, and hold a BA in Music.  I spent half my collegiate musical career studying flute performance, and the other half as a contemporary worship leader.  I have over 20 years of experience performing with orchestras, wind ensembles, chamber groups, and flute choirs.  You can currently see me performing with the Bethel Philharmonic Orchestra, as their piccoloist.  Before leaving Denver, I directed the Rocky Mountain Flute Choir, as well as served as principle flutist for the Castle Rock Orchestra.  I have also been trained in piano, voice, and guitar, and regularly play/sing with church worship bands.

A Private Music Lesson Your Child Looks Forward To

Personal and encouraging, I highly recommend Shannon as a music instructor for both beginners and more advanced students alike.  She thoroughly knows her stuff, and makes learning fun!

- Michelle S.

Shannon possesses that wonderful combination of musical talent, patience, and the ability to clearly communicate her goals to children.  

I have taught fifth grade for 25 years, and Shannon stands out to me as a strong and caring teacher.  I would encourage any parent to take advantage of an opportunity to have their children learn how to play and appreciate the piano from Shannon.

- Kirsten K.

Taking lessons with Shannon has been a great experience!  I had never played guitar, and wanted to learn to accompany myself when I sing.  Shannon is very patient, and her thorough teaching style makes remember chords much easier than I thought it would be!
