    "Scot has been my guitar teacher for a few years. Although I don't practice as much as I should, I have learned many songs and understand music so I am able to play with other musicians. Scot shows a great deal of patience with this senior, and I suspect it comes from his many years of teaching young children as well as adults of all ages. One of the things I like about Scot is his vast knowledge of music. If I want to play a certain song, he will have mastered it by the next lesson...complete with sheet music!"

    I have known Scot for over 20 years. . I play three instruments and wanted someone with a broad scope as well. I started as a student and our lessons became jams at times as well. Either me playing guitar with him, or at times me playing piano or drums. Scot himself is a multi-instrumentalist. He can play Guitar,Bass,Drums,Piano, and Cello. He has played with many bands over the years, and most of all has taught over 200 students of all ages and levels. I feel he can adjust to any student and their style, no matter the musical ability, age or genre of music the student likes. He will work on any song or style you want. I very much enjoyed his teaching style and his ability to convey the lesson effectively. He is passionate about his teaching and always has been. I can see it. I have met other teachers and have contrasted his teaching style and passion. Music is his life and it shows. He is constantly wanting to improve himself musically so that he can be an even more effective teacher than he already is. Most of all, encompassing all of this is the fact he is a good person. This is what is integral in making him a great teacher. He is always positive. He has the ability to focus you as well. I feel I know what it takes to teach as well. I do some substitute teaching and while music is not my major, I have substituted in music classrooms. I also have a business and have hired people and while not a musical related business, I feel I can see character in people. Scot has great character. He could inspire any student. Even without a formal music degree, he has many, many years of hands on teaching experience that a degree cannot necessarily teach you. We also have conversations about music theory and music in general. All of this and all of the above I have mentioned is why I think Scot would be a great choice for the job he is seeking. I think he could very effectively teach any grade level and any musical level as well. I suggest him in the highest regards possible. Ron
