Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: Results -- in many cases, I've succeeded where others (including many other "name" instructors) have failed. "Teachers teach the way they've been taught," and my own academic background (Berklee, Duquesne University, Cincinnati College-Conservatory) has been both intensive and highly structured. I also believe that my training in music theory has given me an analytic edge in my teaching -- I'm very skilled in pinpointing physical / musical problems and plotting a structured path that works for the needs of the individual student.

After just one lesson it’s clear Scott is an exceptional instructor . His structured, professional style excelled above any lesson I’ve taken. If you are looking for a structured , professional that will enable you to learn how to read music and play the guitar, look no further, he is the best!

Sorry I am just seeing this but I have been with these lessons for a while now. I can not express the value I find in each lesson. The intricacies of learning such an great instrument as the guitar and having a very knowledgeable teacher. I am hoping to continue for a long time and to become accomplish player with such a teacher.

I've only had a few lessons with Scott Elliott, and so far I'm very pleased. When I first saw his profile picture he was wearing a tux, and I thought he'd be the right teacher for me. I'm a middle-aged amateur who has finally decided to "get serious" about guitar playing. Scott has responded very thoughtfully to where I want to go without imposing a strong agenda of his own. (That was always the problem with my son's piano teachers.) We've been exploring rock, pop, swing and jazz. Scott's mix of musical experience, respect for student, and patience has suited me well, and I'm sure it would work for many other students.

I'm an odd guitar student, played a long time with some study over the years but not skilled, not disciplined; an amateur. Scott was able to determine during the first lesson where I am and what I need at this point, and show me in an exciting and simple manner what I can be doing. I was surprised.
