About Scott K.

As a composer I have found it necessary never to stray too far from performance. The shear exhilaration one can obtain through playing an instrument is unique and powerful. I have devoted my life to trying to understand and master this elusive beast we call Music. As a child, of a peculiar spirit, I demanded my parents get me guitar and piano lessons. I felt an instant connection to these instruments and was compelled to investigate. After years of inquiry I ended up attending New School for the Arts, a high school devoted to the arts where I studied music composition. From there, I went on to the University of Arizona to receive degrees in Music Composition and Philosophy with minors in Mathematics and English Literature. For my Masters' programs I wondered into the world of contemporary composers and experimental music at Mills College in Oakland where I finished my M.A. in Music Composition as well as my M.F.A. in Electronic Music and Recording Media. All the while pursuing a mastery of the instruments that caught my ear in the first place. I have now returned to Tucson to work on my music and further my education in the field of philosophy at the University of Arizona. *** Lesson Details *** I am laid back and playful in my approach. I like to gear lessons toward the interests of the student, and if I am doing my job correctly, all traditional technique will be painless. I also like to delve into music theory to give one a deeper appreciation as well as an understanding and steady grasp of the tools of composition if their heart is so inclined. When it comes to music I am rather eclectic and I feel every style has something to add to the techniques of a solid performer, so I tend to draw from many disparate places to offer a fuller experience. In no time at all, you should be playing pieces you love, understanding how they work, and perhaps embellishing them or writing your own. *** Studio Equipment *** Keyboard, Guitar, Amps *** Travel Equipment *** Provide: My guitar, music stand, and amp if necessary. Student Provides: Their instrument (Piano/guitar etc.) *** Specialties *** Rock/ Jazz/ Classical/ Experimental

I am an adult learner that plays in a cover band. Fairly new to the experience and what I found happened is that I learned a whole lot to play my part in the songs, A LOT of songs but am unclear as to what it is I am actually playing. For my first lesson with Scott, I gave him a brief description of what I was looking for with forward progress as well as where my current lack of understanding lies. When I showed up to my first lesson, he was fully prepared with an exact structure of what I needed. Exercises to take home that would keep me engaged vs bored. He is very music intelligent. I am looking forward to the many more lessons to come. Thank you, Scott!
