I can offer you a wealth of knowledge regarding not only the drum set, but also navigating life in the music industry. I can show you how to make practicing fun, how to really engage with and support the people you play with, and how to really dig deep into a groove as well as get flashy with cool fills and chops. I have been performing and touring full time for many years and have a lot of information that I'd love to share with you!

About Scott G.

Welcome all! My name's Scott, and teaching, playing, and talking about drums are my favorite things in the world! I have a degree in percussion performance from LSU, and have been playing drum set professionally since high school. I'm grateful to call New Orleans my home, a city revered for it's incredible music scene and depth of culture, to which I owe so much of my musical ability and awareness. I've traveled the world with groups such as the Samantha Fish Band and the Dirty Bourbon River Show, all the while maintaining an active freelance career at home, playing with all sorts of different groups and musicians at legendary venues. I've been so fortunate to have been presented with these opportunities, and I'd be so grateful for a chance to pass my knowledge on to you!

I am a sax player and amateur drum enthusiast. Scott and I toured for a few years together.
He was always figuring things out in the van with his trusty air drumset. When he could finally sit down at his set, he would pretty much have the idea figured out and ready to apply to reality.
We would talk endlessly about various drum and rhythm topics and he very effortlessly talked me through techniques and ideas. I’ve learned a great deal from him.
On top of that, he is one of the kindest and most compassionate people I’ve ever met.
There’s a fire inside of him and it comes out through his playing and interpersonal relationships in a beautiful way.

Best instructor ever

Scott is an enthusiastic and gifted music teacher with a wealth of experience that he generously shares.
We were looking for a flexible, knowledgeable, yet reliable teacher who would inspire our son to grow his own musical talent. We were blessed to find Scott, who fit those roles wonderfully. Our son enjoyed and benefited from the interactions with Scott. We recommend him without a doubt.

Scott is an incredibly knowledgeable drummer. He possesses a wealth of wisdom on the drums that he has gained through years of professional gigging experience "on the front lines" so to speak. A kind hearted fellow who's love of music comes through in everything he does. He can help you be a better musician; he can help you be a better person.

Scott is a great instructor! He's passionate about teaching and the drums which has made me really excited to learn! He takes the time to help me work out all my minor issues I'm facing on the drums like limb independence and counting. You can tell his diverse musical past has really influenced him as a player and teacher. Plus, he seems like an all around good guy! Definitely planing to take more lessons from him.
