Scott is soft spoken, patient, and kind. He worked well with my 6 year old at her first piano lesson. I would highly recommend him for music students of any age.

Awesome Teacher, Very Professional, Super Knowledgeable

I was lucky to have Scott as my first guitar teacher. He took me from a beginner to an advanced guitarist. He is very knowledgeable and makes playing guitar fun, but also challenging. So, if you are serious about becoming a guitarist and or musician Scott is your instructor.
