Hi! I'm Scott. I perform with a one-man band setup I created which utilizes a modified guitar and home-made foot pedals to control a drum set, while I sing on top of it all. I have a recording studio at home, and have performed with bands as a singer, guitarist, saxophonist, bassist, percussionist, and as a sound engineer. I've written, performed and recorded my own album which made it to the 2nd round of the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards, and was a voting member of the Philadelphia Chapter of the Grammy Committee and NARAS (National Association or the Recording Arts and Sciences.) I started piano lessons from age 5 and just kept picking up more instruments and gear as I got older and never stopped learning or enjoying it!
*** Lesson Details ***
I have been teaching Guitars, Basses, Percussion, Piano, Saxophone, Music Production, Recording, and Live Sound for 16 years.
I can teach you note-reading, tabs, ear training, music theory, composition, improvisation in just about any style of music.
Working with people writing songs is something I enjoy thoroughly; I can help you write and record your own songs. A computer and internet access are preferred to take full advantage of the technology for learning and producing music.
Knowledgeable in Instrument repair, set-up, and maintenance, I can help you fix it, and how to spot a good instrument.
Patient and experienced, with a broad knowledge of music in most areas, I can give you hundreds of good references from previous students I've taught over the years
*** Studio Equipment ***
Guitars, basses, percussion and drum sets, a piano, saxophones, hand drums, a 20-track digital recording studio with monitors that are equalized to the room's acoustics for accurate listening and mixing, plus an assortment of microphones, amps, mic stands, cables, and connectors.
Opened my first music store over 13 years ago. Been teaching, performing, and recording ever since.
Scott is a great teacher, informative, very skilled and fun to work with
Had our first lesson with Scott. He was great with my 7 year old. We look forward to future lessons with him!
Very personable and eager to share his love of music. He’s not looking to teach you “his way” but meeting you where you’re at and helping you get to where you want to go, musically.
Excellent, very knowledgeable, skillful, courteous and very humble instructor with lots of patience . A great teacher indeed.
Scott was super friendly and patient. He was very thorough and helped loosen Sean up into his inner rock star! We felt very comfortable with the whole experience and can't wait for the next lesson.
My son loved his drum lesson with Scott today. Scott was very kind and encouraging. He even helped set up the equipment properly.My son has already practiced a few times and has not stopped talking about his lesson. Thank you Scott.We look forward to the next lesson.+ Read More
