Flynn Music Studio was established in 1981, right after Mike and Shannon were married. They had both attended Shenandoah Conservatory of Music where their shared love of music blossomed into a marriage more than 35 years ago. Mike went on to pursue a career in business while Shannon began creating her traditional studio teaching private piano study in the Washington area. Shannon has taught private piano for the past 40 years and has more than 20 years in the classroom. She holds her Bachelor’s in Music Education from Shenandoah Conservatory and her Master’s in Curriculum & Instruction from Concordia University and is an accomplished pianist, teacher and mentor. As technology has evolved, several years ago, a friend of hers not living in Shannon’s area asked if Shannon could teach her children. Since then, Shannon has dreamed of combining teaching methods to take advantage of the affordability and convenience of teaching via live video connection thus maintaining the “one-on- one” relationship with the student that is necessary to progress when learning an instrument. She has researched, experimented with, and perfected this method to bring her lifelong love of music to you in either a traditional “in studio” method or via video connection, no matter where you live. Her dream has become a reality and we are looking forward to fulfilling your dream of learning to play and sing. Mike has joined her, along with several other teachers, teaching many instruments, in this quest and together they want you to join them and amaze yourself with how fun and easy it is to learn.
