About Scott

A native of Washington DC, Scott has performed for over 45 years in various shows, bands & theaters. He has worked with The Glenn Miller Orchestra and The Modernaires; The Peter Duchin Orchestra; The Ink Spots; The Tokens; Rory (Disney Channel); Charlie Byrd; Susannah McCorkle; Keely Smith & John Colianni (accompanist for Mel Torme) to name a few.
He has also toured for the USO with Miss USA in Europe 85’ (With an 18 year old Halle Berry) and Miss USA in Central America 86’.
Besides playing a in few theater pits, Scott has also performed on the stage as a musical character in the Kennedy Cen
ter’s ‘92 production of “Pump Boys & Dinettes”, taking the role of inbred “Eddie” to new lows.
In 2005, upon the return of guitarist Dan Hovey from a NY career joined with drummer John Zidar to form Gigahertz [GHz]. The trio was an effort to reconnect with the music he grew up with. The band quickly became a known entity on the DC music scene.
Currently he is in his 15th year as a member of the Adjunct Jazz Faculty of Montgomery College, MD teaching electric bass and converting his students to upright bass players.
As a versatile musician, Scott is constantly changing hats to survive in an ever changing music climate and continues to work as a

someone who can walk in and get the job done.
Besides teaching at Montgomery College and privately, he owns a recording studio making demos for local groups and also creates sheet
music for bands and singers.

Upright Bass · In studio
Scott is not only an incredible bassist and musician, but he is an passionate and willing teacher. He was able to tell right away what my strengths and weaknesses were as a musician, and he began to strengthen my weak points while improving my strong points as soon as the first lesson. No teacher in the past has been able to push my musical boundaries the way Scott has, and he has always found a way for me to understand even the most complex musical ideas. He has many years of experience to call upon as he teaches, and he never fails to show his wisdom.

Scott is an awesome musician and a great teacher! I am actually a trumpet player who meets with Scott (as often as possible) to learn jazz improvisation from a true master.

Scott has a gift for making complicated things seem easy. In a jazz improvisation lesson he told me, "The trick is to keep the melody in your head, while you're creating a completely new melody." This one suggestion has completely changed my playing - and I hope - made me a much better jazz player.

He is an excellent musician, one of the best bass players around. He plays so VERY musically and swings really hard. If you have an interest in learning the bass, Scott is one of your best options.

If you're looking for lessons, I definitely recommend you go to Scott! This is the first time for me taking singing/voice lessons, and the first day I didn't comprehend all the music terms when I was being asked, I felt like such a newbie but he explained well, was patient and understanding. I'm sure I am a very frustrating person to work with overall hahah but he is very professional. If you sign up for lessons I guarantee you will learn something from it and make improvement progress on whatever it is you're signing up for!

Jacob was always accommodating with our ever-changing schedule and was so patient with teaching my 12 year old to play the double valved french horn, given the limitations of being many miles away and the difficulty of playing this instrument.

I had lessons with Jacob only for a short time because I'm leaving the US but nevertheless he taught me great things !! I already played for about 10 years now and Jacab was still able to help me improve playing.
He also really designs the lessons the way you want it with the content you want.
Awesome teacher !!

Nathan R.

Windsor Mill, MD

I equally cover fundamentals, technique, tone production, solo rep., orchestral music, jazz and anything else the student might be interested in.

About Nathan

I have been teaching private lessons for close to 10 years and have been an active performer for even longer, playing in all different types of groups, from rock bands and jazz groups to orchestras and brass bands. I studied music at Frostburg State University (Bachelors) and the Peabody Conservatory (Masters). I can teach just about any age and skill level and cover anything you are interested in learning; whether its a certain style, genre, technique or song.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are laid back, with a focus on perfecting the basics. Most students work out of a method book a
ppropriate to their skill level. Aside from that we'll also spend time learning songs and pieces of the students choice. With the right amount of effort, you'll know your way around your instrument in no time at all

*** Travel Equipment ***
Will provide sheet music and exercises. My students should have a working instrument as well as any method book or sheet music we are working on.

*** Specialties ***
I teach all styles and genres

I find Theresa to be almost like a kindred spirit. Not only does she have MUCH knowledge of her artistry but, of course, shares my love for music, children, animals, crafting, sports etc. In addition, she has great patience with me which has enabled me to learn an artistry that I never really thought to be possible. I am VERY pleased with her instruction.

Joe R.

Glen Rock, PA

About Joe

Hello! I've been singing since before I can remember and playing instruments for almost as long. I have a passion for music. Whether it's being onstage at York Little Theatre, singing with the church choir in Red Lion, or paying with one of several local and regional bands, I love music and performing. There's no rush like sharing your passion with an audience, and I believe that with practice comes confidence and with confidence comes a great performer. I'll make my schedule/rates as flexible as possible to accommodate anyone who wants to learn! Let's get started!
