About Scott

We learn by teaching. That is why I love to teach, because I love to learn. I have made many great connections while teaching music to people and one of the ways to do that is to work together on a common goal. I started teaching music because during my own studies I have discovered many quick learning strategies that make playing music fun. I teach from my home studio as well as via Skype. Many of my strategies I've discovered on my own. Now I want to share these ideas with you.

Scott is a multi-instrumentalist loop master whose music spans a wide range of sounds and genres. With an education in music performance and a reputation for having a good time this laid back musician is no amateur to the music scene. Scott has performed hundreds of shows and numerous festival ...

Scott is an excellent guitar teacher. He makes it fun to learn while gearing the lessons toward the student’s needs. In return, this allows the student to excel in learning the guitar at their own pace. I definitely would recommend Scott as guitar instructor.

wish I had more time for MORE lessons

Scott has been a great teacher, his patience and ability to teach at my pace have been wonderful! I also love that he finds ways to teach music I like.

My only regret is that I don't have more time and money to schedule lessons every week! I hope that changes soon.

I love my Uke, and I love lessons with Scott!

TJ is a great teacher. I have learned allot in a short amount of time.
He caters the lesson to what I wish to learn while still making sure I learn to actually play not just learn the song. I have enjoyed learning from him and am still a student.
He does like coldplay but I will try not to hold that against him lol.

Great teaching approach

My goal was to be able to play songs around a campfire and TJ has been fantastic at tailoring our lessons to this goal. Every week I learn something a little new, but I also learn a song that is simple enough for me to play and which incorporates whatever new chord or technique he's introduced. I much prefer practicing actual songs vs. excercises and he always leaves me with a new song to play. He is also instantly likeable and lessons feel more like hanging out with a friend than a teacher. I would highly recommend him as a guitar teacher.

Fun and inspiring teacher!

If you are looking for a fun, optimistic, and talented teacher TJ is your guy. Every time we get together to make music TJ is full of life and always has a smile on his face. His knowledge about music theory and history is amazing and he can back up that knowledge when he picks up any instrument whether it be guitar, piano, bass, or even mandolin. The great thing about TJ is he inspires you to want to get better at whatever it is you want to get better at. He is patient and understands everyone learns in different ways and at different paces. He can get along with anyone of any age. I highly recommend TJ as your teacher no matter what level you are at.

I have had a varied background growing up, from being an Eagle Scout, to holding a black belt in Judo.

At NAU, I sang in many operas and piano recitals and spent three months in Germany teaching choir through the Department of Defense.Shortly after, I graduated with a masters in vocal performance from Washington University in St. Louis. The studies I learned from Wash U catapulted my love for teaching!Recently, I have been teaching ...

Review

I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of this experience. I thought a singing lesson over the internet would be choppy or tinny, but the audio and visual quality was quite good. Tom, the teacher, knew his stuff, too. If I had one change to make it would be to have a way to provide information about my goals/aims of the helpout beforehand. Tom was quite a good opera singer, but I was looking to get some basics on some less lofty stuff. I still learned a couple of good solid concepts as a beginner, but I felt a little embarrassed. Overall, though, 4 stars for the technical quality and knowledge of the teacher.

I then went to Berklee College of Music for four years for a performance degree. At Berklee I studied all kinds of styles of ...

Alex is a really dedicated teacher. He tutored me for around 6 months and he taught me amazing rudiments and grooves that I still practice today! He's a very versatile player. Not only did he help me improve my chops, he introduced me to songs by some of the most talented artists in the world. My playing is still very influenced by his technique.

Best,
