Scott is a true mentor, and working with him shaped not just my technical vocal skills but my identity as a performer in musical theatre and straight theatre. He expanded my belt range significantly, in ways that were healthy for my vocal chords, and he helped me develop a mixed belt that let me move throughout my vocal range with greater finesse and control.
Lessons with Scott are focused and fun, a perfect mix of overall technique and specific, practical work on songs for example, he often helped me prepare for auditions, and we would then work together to shape the vocal possibilities of each role I was cast in. His deep knowledge of the range and history of musical theatre is impressive and very helpful; I also learned so much from him about the context and history of what I was singing in my lessons, and he is able to suggest great audition songs!
Most importantly, Scott connects with and cares about each of his students as individuals, and as performers and vocalists, and this shows in the growth he elicits from them, creating a supportive environment with high expectations accompanied by a caring guidance that makes it possible meet those expectations (provided of course, that you hold up your end of the bargain and practice daily!).
