About Scott M.

Hi! I'm Scott.

I have a live-broadcasting/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 2 albums and regularly live stream music now. I was a voting member of the Philadelphia Chapter of the Grammy Committee and NARAS (National Association or the Recording Arts and Sciences) about 15years ago.

My first music lessons were on the piano at age 5 and I just kept picking up more instruments and equipment and eventually tried to connect all my knowledge and gear into what you can see in my videos.

I usually perform using a one-man band setup I created. I modified guitar and made foot pedals to control a drum set, while singing.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have been teaching Guitar, Bass, Percussion, Piano, Saxophone, Ukelele, Singing, Music Production, Recording, and Composition, and Performing for 18 years.

I can teach you how to read music, tabs, ear training, music theory, composition, improvisation in just about any style.

Working with people writing songs is something I enjoy thoroughly; I can help you write and record your own songs. I like 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 instruments, teach you how to spot a good instrument, and how to adjust, maintain, and modify them to your liking.

*** Studio Equipment ***

Guitars, basses, ukulele, setar, percussion and drum sets, saxophones, hand drums, a theremin, effects pedals and processors. 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.

Scott is a professional music coach with extensive knowledge of music theory and methods. He meets you at any level and works on your goals. He made me feel very comfortable in our lessons and would give many tips and exercises. I would say I have improved dramatically since I began the lessons. Thank you again Scott!

Wanted to share an update after multiple lessons - Scott is a virtuoso teacher - he has some many techniques and tricks for helping a person learn to sing - he's also able to start anyone signing right off the bat - not just learning scales or technique - it's so much more fun to learn while you are singing at the same time.

Scott is amazing he was patient and support Scott started the fire and passion I once had so long ago. That I can not put a price tag on. As a Head Softball coach for 50 years I know how much that means.

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.
