About Scott S.

Scott teaches: Ages 18 and up
Teaching since: January 2008
Last sign in: Within two months

Overview

Through formal and self- instructed lessons from age 12, I've learned country, folk, blues, rock, and metal techniques and formed several local bands as lead vocalist and lead/rhythm guitarist.
Writing and recording my own music has been a hobby for over 30 years.
Teaching new guitarists is very rewarding to me. To see the light come on and watch a student perform a song, express themselves musically, and create their own composition is an awesome experience.
An active music enthusiast from a young age, I learned clarinet technique and music theory from age 9 through public schools, performing in orchestra and marching band.

I loved my guitar lessons from Mr. Smith. He made learning the guitar fun and easy. I also liked the short devotionals we did. I would definitely recommend Mr. Smith to anyone who wants to learn the guitar. Her is a great teacher!

I really appreciate Scott's encouragement in teaching me and his experience from years of playing guitar. I can learn songs by ear now! He even helped me buy my first guitar!

Scott's teaching method is very pleasant, helpful, and effective- I was playing a popular song after my first lesson!
