The Key to Music!
"The Right Music Makes Everything Better!"

Shaun is one of the most entertaining and inspiring talents of our time. Mix in an Emmy-nominated artist, add his captivating storytelling and wild musical challenges, top it off with a message that'll pierce you directly to the heart, and you have Shaun Barrowes. 

Students, teachers, and parents constantly praise Shaun's powerful insights and unique approach to implementing the power of music into everyone's lives. "Shaun puts his love for music and his passion for sharing it with others into everything he does. He's a master of his craft and a wonderful role model for all people, not just students." - Earl Hurrey, former Walt Disney Entertainment Manager and Deputy Executive Direction of the National Association for Music Education.

"...Shaun was engaging from start to finish! He quickly captured our students' interest with his musical talent and held their engagement throughout with his story of perseverance and resilience. I must have asked 100 plus students after the event how they liked it and it was overwhelmingly positive!"

Steven Fisher - Vice Principal

Lakeridge Jr High School

 "Shaun was personable, accommodating, entertaining, relatable, and engaging as he worked with our students and staff. Shaun is highly skilled and respected as a music artist, author, motivational speaker and person. He utilizes his abilities to bring the message straight to the students and staff in a way that kept everyone engaged and focused the entire duration of the assembly. We would highly recommend Shaun! We want him to come back to our school again soon."

"Shaun's assembly with Spanish Fork High School music students was AWESOME! The students were totally engaged and invested the entire time. His energy is infectious and he inspired our students. We loved having him here!"

Shaun's message was positive and inspirational, and it also connected with the students in a way that allowed them to consider ways to use music to improve their mental health. If you are in need of a school-wide activity to promote student mental health and well-being, we recommend Live for Music!
