Since then he has received a Graduate Diploma in Music Therapy from Concordia University, received his accreditation with the Canadian Association of Music Therapy, and established himself in Ottawa.

Musically, Coleman has experience of all kinds. From eight years of classical piano training, to a diploma in jazz performance on the double bass, to touring across Canada singing folk music, to writing and recording music for kids on the ukulele. He has also played in several ensembles of different styles, from rock to jazz to bluegrass to choral. Presently, Coleman sings at his parish (St. John the Baptist Ukrainian Catholic Shrine) on a weekly basis and is attempting to learn a good repertoire of Broadway hits from the '30s and '40s just for fun. Landon, his wife Lara Coleman, and their children William and Edith are based in Westboro.
