He has been very professional, dedicated, and thorough in his work. He has given my son extra support throughout my son's lessons, thus making him a better guitar player. I highly recommend Scott for any guitar instruction!”

“Scott is an excellent teacher and wonderful guitarist. His instructions and suggestions are very targeted and effective. I enjoy our lessons as they are a mix of directed, hands on training as well as some discussion, idea sharing, and playing. Scott is a great listener and has a talent when it comes to finding the right exercise, etude or piece to continuously improve my playing.”

“I have studied classical guitar with Scott for two years and he was a tactful, focused, experienced teacher who supported my growth with gentle guidance and care. He supplemented my lessons with duets, informational sheets for teaching points and various studies to highlight right and left hand techniques. He knows how to zero in and help you in a positive way. He is personable and easy to learn with.”
