Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Q: Do you have group classes I can sign up for?

A: Not at this time, for group lessons, you assemble the groups and decide what and how to play together.

Q: Do I need an instrument to get started?

A: While it’s highly reccomended to get an instrument so you can practice between lessons, you’re more than welcome to play one of the extra instruments in my studio, I have doubles of everything. If you want to play mandolin or banjo, I can actually loan or rent you one because I have several.

Q: What happens if I miss an appointment?

A: Nothing usually, if you want to reschedule or pay me for my time I sure appreciate it, but it’s not required. I’m the most lenient guy in town, just try not to make a habit of abusing my schedule.

Q: What styles of music do you specialize in?

A: Finger-style picking, various styles of Jazz, Classical, Blues, Rock, Reggae, Pop, Bluegrass, Violin Music, Chicken Pickin’ Country, Vocal arrangements. I am myself a bit of a mutt musically speaking, and I enjoy playing and teaching a wide range of styles.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Scott has been a wonderful, kind, and patient teacher for my son and his friends. They formed a little bluegrass band and Scott has, seemingly effortlessly, taught each one of them a different instrument and helped them to play together. His sweet spirit and gentle good humor create a safe and joyful environment in which to learn and grow. As a group of parents, we have been impressed by his talent and professionalism and amazed by his finesse in working with a very energetic group of young boys.
