Scott Scully worked for the Plano ISD district as a private voice teacher back in the mid 2000’s at my school, Plano East SHS. He gave lessons from 6th grade through 12th grade. Under his lessons, our students gained confidence, vocal skills that encompassed agility, strength, superior breath support, and superb technique. Scott has a great sense of humor and an ability to connect with anyone in the teaching setting. I can only imagine what new strategies and techniques he has developed over the many years learning and perfecting his craft at the MET. I only wish he lived closer so that our students could continue to take from Scott.+ Read More
The fact that someone of this caliber is teaching on "takelessons" is AMAZING!! Scott was great, patient but still full of energy and positive reinforcement. If you are wanting to further your singing ability (and I am not a pro for sure) you should definitely sign up for a lesson. Top Notch all around!!!+ Read More
