Vast experience on stage and in studio. Lessons are tailored to the student, taught in the best way for the student to enjoy while achieving goals.
I really enjoy helping guitarists of any skill level have that 'ah ha!' moment when a new concept, technique or musical understanding opens up a new door od possibilities.
To Whom It May Concern, It is with great pleasure that I write this letter of recommendation for Scott Emmons. I have had the privilege of knowing Scott for the past four years as my son’s guitar teacher, and would like to speak to you about the qualities that he brings as an instructor. First of all, Scott has exemplary leadership skills and has been an invaluable educator in my child’s life. He has worked diligently with my son to differentiate to his needs based on extensive depth of knowledge regarding guitar instruction, performance, music technology, and theory. Additionally, Scott is an excellent communicator. He exhibits the ability to listen to parents and students and take their thoughts and ideas to create positive learning experience. He is aware of a variety of approaches to teaching my child, and is constantly broadening his pedagogy based on best-practice. He regularly integrates this best-practice into his daily lessons, and works to keep his instruction fresh and stimulating. As a parent who is also an education professional, I am always impressed to see him differentiating and changing his ability to relay a new skill or concept on the spot to meet the needs of my child. I can confidently say that he goes that extra mile to ensure that my son feels valued and respected during his music journey. Secondly, Scott enjoys what he does and brings wonderful excitement to lessons. He makes learning music fun and relevant and that taps into the student’s interest. If you walk into one of my son’s lessons, he is making music, not standing at a music stand mindlessly plucking strings. He is engaged! He has a brilliant command of his instrument and can teach any student from beginner to well beyond advanced. Lastly, although certainly perhaps the most important, he produces amazing guitarists because he has high expectations. My son has been with Scott since he was ten years old. In the four years that Scott has been his guitar instructor, he has gone from a beginner to a well versed 14 year old guitarist who has the expertise to play with working musicians two and three times his age. Scott’s lessons have given my son the ability to play guitar all over the country with bands. He will undoubtedly pursue a career in music due to Scott’s instruction. I heartily recommend Scott, and if you have any questions at all, I am more than happy to talk with you in order to answer them. Amynda Pais Ed.S. [email protected] (305) 481-4844
Max Rodriguez 16443 SW 282nd Street Homestead, Fl 33033 786.247.3718 [email protected] 23rd of July, 2018 To whom it may concern, I have known Scott Emmons for well over two years now. He began giving my teenage son, Michael, guitar lessons at Music Depot in Florida City. When the store closed, he was able to accommodate us in his busy schedule and continued Michael’s musical education through private lessons. I can see the impact this has had on his life. He’s given him all the technical skills needed to thrive as a musician but more importantly he taught him how to love music. Scott’s passion and joy made Michael fall in love with music and start developing a relationship with it that will give him meaning for the rest of his life. While at Music Depot, I would see Scott’s students past and present having an amazing rapport with him. His discussions would range from simple concepts to advanced topics and he mastered them both. He also has excellent written and verbal communication skills with both parents and students. Scott accomplishes all these tasks with great initiative and with a positive attitude. Scott would often spend extra time with Michael, because he saw in him that eagerness to learn and was thrilled to see this and connected with him. Michael’s ability to read music, improvise and understand the theory behind each piece has grown exponentially. I recommend Scott to you without reservation. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me Sincerely, Max Rodriguez
The teaching process is determined and tailored by the student's goals, in the format that the student learns best in, and areas most in need of improvement.
I have been teaching steadily for 20 years, longer when not on a steady basis. Since I was just a kid, I have played small clubs and giant stages, big and small studios which has allowed me to pick up a pretty deep understanding of what it takes to perform at a high level even in high pressure situations.
The price ranges from $40,00 to $50.00 per hour depending on location.
