My mother found me at the family piano picking out the melodies from the records she listened to during the day when I was three.

I’m one of the lucky ones: I’ve been a musician all my life.

Frighteningly Incisive

One of the finest musical instructors I’ve known. Scott’s suggestions to help improve guitar accompaniment in all our songs were frighteningly incisive and I was very pleased with it. This is a class I would take every year it is offered.
