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.

So far, only one lesson, but Scott puts the "professional" in Professor. He instills great confidence. His vast experience adds depth to his ability to understand our needs and cultivate them with a sure hand. (music, not just playing notes)
