*** Lesson Details ***
First, we start in a studio environment with no distractions, enabling us to get a lot done in the time we have. I supply all of the appropriate teaching materials at no additional cost to the student/parents. I also strongly encourage parents, especially of the younger students, to sit in on the lessons so they know first hand what's being taught (I have a designated, comfortable parents and guests area for that very reason). Then, if you're just starting out, we'll work through the basics. If you're already an Intermediate level student, we'll review basics to make sure the foundation is there. Basic techniques are the building blocks on which all careers or school successes are built. Then we move into areas that take the you where YOU want to go, whether it's great grades in school, auditions for a high profile drum corp, or performing and recording with either your own band or an existing pro band that you've auditioned for and taken the spotlight in. We can focus on one or more forms of rock, country, jazz, pop, Gospel, symphonic/orchestral styles, or concert and marching band styles. No matter the end goal, it's your life - and it's my job to build the foundation in you and help you get where you want to go. Above all, the key to successful private instruction is providing an atmosphere that promotes quality teaching in a safe environment, and instills the confidence a person needs to stand out in the crowd!
*** Studio Equipment ***
I supply all of the teaching material at no additional cost. The in-studio lessons are taught in the basement which is finished w tile flooring and area rugs under the main set. The room also includes a work study area, waiting area with seating for parents, and parking is available. Home includes 1 dog that is not in the studio or student entrance. Parking is in the driveway.
*** Travel Equipment ***
I supply all of the teaching material at no additional cost. I can also bring sticks if needed.
*** Specialties ***
I have been performing professionally since 1982, and during that time have played a wide variety of styles, including most forms of rock, country rock, Gospel, jazz, Broadway, symphonic arrangements, and marching band styles. The recording/studio work I've done has also required a variety of custom playing styles and techniques.

Its amazing seeing our little boy reading the music and playing the drums.
We highly recommend Scott in every way!

He is great with people! He really goes into the need for knowing basics if you're going to do well at any of the playing styles. It makes it so much easier to play just about anything, instead of having to start from scratch to learn every individual style of music there is, which is really important when you're doing recording like I am. He's also great in encouraging individual creativity in playing, and not just staying "inside the box." That really makes a person stand out from everyone else, which is what needs to happen if you're going to be noticed and be successful.

I am a working drummer and percussionist in all major styles, from blues, funk, and jazz to classical and marching band.
In my off time, I enjoy playing in the mountains with my girlfriend and our cat.
I am a Master's student at CU Boulder studying Piano Teaching and Performance. For the past four years, I have lived in Nashville, TN (Music City) - obtaining my Bachelor's Degree in Piano Performance from Belmont University, teaching, and gigging in the city.
I specialize in classical piano, but also teach pop, jazz, and ensemble repertoire. Classical piano lessons (especially for beginners) provide a great foundation for students, even if they decide later on to pursue another musical genre. As a pianist in Nashville, I've been privileged to work with musicians from all genres. In 2012, I was featured in the holiday special, Christmas at Belmont which aired on PBS. I also had the privilege of working with three time Grammy award-winner, Michael W. Smith in 2013. In 2015 and 2016, I was fortunate to play with the Nashville Sym
My teaching philosophy is that music should be inspiring! I truly believe and have seen first-hand that music lessons have the power to change lives at any age. For me, teaching piano is a way to positively contribute to my local community. I am currently teaching at the Parlando School for the Arts in Boulder and hope to expand my teaching studio into the broader community.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or reference requests. I look forward to meeting you!

I have worked in an official capacity for the non-profit ArtForce Iowa, teaching piano, voice, and songwriting to court-appointed youth. I have also taught piano to adults, and lead an annual songwriting course at the University of Iowa's Young Writer's Workshop.
My main musical project is called Christopher the Conquered. You can look it up online to hear samples of my work and to watch videos of my live performances. My music has appeared in films and commercials as well.
For in-person lessons, I have a portable recording rig that I can use to record students who are ready to share what they've learned, whether it be with friends/fami

My approach to teaching is unique to each student's needs and we will create tailored lesson plans based on your goals. I believe learning should be fun, so theory will always be accompanied with songs applying concepts we are working on. We will get you playing right away!
For beginners, we will focus on reading music and learning theory, then applying those principles with songs that use those skills. For intermediate and above students we will continue technique and theory but focus on getting you to your specific musical aspirations.
I love working with kids and have experience with adult students a
Music, specifically drumming, is my passion. I am extremely grateful to have the opportunity to make a living performing & teaching drums. Watching a student work on a new song for months and finally get to the point where they are ready to perform it is a truly great feeling. Many of my students have been with me since they started playing drums, I feel very grateful to maintain such fantastic students.
Any time I have a show locally in Colorado, I often put one of my students & their family on the guest list and allow them to come backstage and see what it's like to perform on stage in front of a crowd. This offers the student an opportunity to see their teacher perform and a fun night for the family.
You can catch me performing locally with Grayson Erhard, Emma Mayes & the Hip,
