Dreyfoos, Jr. School of the Arts. During Sean’s musical academia Sean performed with world – renowned institutions such as Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Palm Beach Opera & Boca Raton Philharmonic to name a few. Both classically and jazz trained on the string bass Sean also had the pleasure of being taught by jazz greats such as Dave Tomasello, Mik Groniger, Duffy Jackson and Nancy Wilson’s former trombonist Cleve Maloon. When not performing arias and orchestral masterpieces or improvising a new jazz tune Sean has been recognized impromptu singing with Soul Diva and Grammy Award winner Patti LaBelle as well as Gospel Legend and recording artist Shirley Caesar.
