Sean Causby

From an early age, Sean Causby has had a sense his life would go where the music took him. He started playing guitar at eight. With the guidance of mentor and now colleague, Randall Sena, he learned to play bass and drums. By middle school, he joined the school beginning band and picked up the alto sax. In high school, Sean played in the marching band, wind ensemble, jazz band, and musical theater pit orchestra. By high school graduation (at 16), Sean began to seriously focus on drums, earning the John Philip Sousa Award, lettering three times in the music program, and attending many honor music programs. 

Mr. Causby, now 18, is a sophomore at Allan Hancock College, on his way to earning an AA in Music. He currently works in Lompoc at Certain Sparks Music as a music teacher, offering lessons on guitar, bass, drums, and ukulele. (Notes Sean, “...with availability on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays!”). He currently plays with the Hancock Concert Band, Hancock Jazz Band, Central City Swing, and his own ensemble, “Odd Method.” Sean has also performed with Jazz Divine, Santa Ynez’s Arts Outreach, PCPA’s Young People’s Project, the MACCC’s Concert Band, and Ryan Weller & Loren Acosta (both from TrueZion) with Central Coast Jazz Trio. After graduation, Sean hopes to continue his education at a music conservatory or vocational school, studying music production. He aspires to be a session musician/pit drummer on Broadway/future Vic Firth endorsee. 

When not playing music, Sean likes to spend his time with friends, eating hot wings, and exploring nature. 

Sean credits Randall Sena, Mic Singh, Jacob Cole, Garson Olivieri, Christopher Diaz, and his own family to his success. “Without them, I would not be where I stand today.”
