Scott is very personable, patient and has a vast skillset across an abundance of instruments. His willingness to not only show the mechanics necessary to become a good guitarist, but ensuring the student has a clear understanding of hand and finger placement is key to musical growth. Our son looks forward to the lesson and is attentive during. This highlights Scott’s ability as a teacher.
We highly recommended him as a teacher.
Scott is very kind and supportive. He puts me at ease and is very helpful. My love of the piano has been rekindled.
Scott is very personable and definitely knows his music. He explained things simply and clearly and provided some great exercises. I look forward to my continued lessons!
Great instructor - couldn't 't be happier. Makes learning guitar fun - time flies by when you're with him, but you learn a lot and get some great practice tips. Looking forward to some additional lessons. If he can help a 50 year old who never picked up an instrument before, he can help you.+ Read More
