SEAN P. ROGAN

My name is Sean P. Rogan and I am a music teacher located in Cranston, RI.  I have a Bachelor of Music in Music Education (K-12) from Berklee College of Music and over 20+ years of experience performing, touring, recording and teaching. 

In 1996 at Berklee, my friends and I started a band called Big D and the Kids Table.  We have played 1000+ shows in over 20 countries, recorded multiple albums, videos and have established a strong fan base throughout the world.  I left the band in 2010 to settle down and start a family.  I now sing and play guitar in a Huey Lewis and the News cover band called Power of Love.  We are based out of Boston and every show we play is such a great time.

I am also a photographer, have about 1000 skydives, have been studying Iyengar Yoga since 2008 and have been happily married to my beautiful wife, Emily since 2009.  We've got a 5 year old daughter, Maggie and a 11 month old son, Van.  They rock.

Living the dream.

*a note from Sean:  Ben introduced me to Led Zeppelin when we were at Aldrich Jr. High School in 1991and changed my life.  He also showed me how to observe music on a much deeper level than just hearing it.
