What Our Customers Are Saying

The following reviews were gathered from Google, Facebook, and Yelp!


Scott is not only a qualified musician, but also a quality teacher.  Often times, learning an instrument can feel like a grind but he makes it feel less like work and more like jamming with a friend.

I’m extremely satisfied with the lessons and I can tell I’m improving every day!

Jack Fish

I’m an older guy who just picked up the ukulele.  My wife bought me lessons at SLO Music for my sixtieth birthday.

So worth my time. Scott is patient and knowledgeable and he was able to show me things I would never have learned just by finding random lessons online.  Highly recommend.

Sean McElhiney

Scott is a warm, encouraging, and fun teacher.  I have thoroughly enjoyed my lessons with him.  His knowledge of music is deep, but he delivers his content in a relaxed and understandable way.  He integrates music theory with each lesson, in nice bite-sized pieces.  I have come away with plenty to work on, but not feeling overwhelmed.

His lesson space is very pleasant.  There is outside space in the shade in a breezy and “covid-safe” environment.  He’s a talented musician and busy performer, with much to contribute to beginner, intermediate or advanced student.

Highly recommended!

Karen Worcester

Scott is an accomplished musician and extraordinary teacher.  He delights in sharing his expertise; and his efforts to help individual students achieve, and exceed, their goals are impressive.

I never imagined that I could learn to arrange and play my own breaks.  SLO Music Lessons has been a wild and wonderful ride!

Many thanks, Scott.

Mark Danks

Scott is the best!  I was worried about starting to learn violin at age 30, but Scott has been a wonderful teacher.

As someone who has been wanting to learn for a long time but was too intimidated to start, I can confidently say that I am SO GLAD that I started lessons.  Progress has been slow and steady, and I very much appreciate Scott’s kindness, patience, and enthusiasm.

Highly recommend!!

Sam Poremba

At the beginning of the summer, I decided to take guitar lessons from Scott to help me progress in my guitar playing abilities.  Scott was patient, kind, and overall very personable.  He has amazing understanding and mastery of the guitar.

He let me guide the lessons as I found areas I was interested in exploring, but also took the wheel if I didn’t know where to steer our lesson direction.  It was a relaxing yet engaging environment to learn in.

I had a great time and it was the highlight of my work week going learn from him.

Evan H.

I have been taking guitar lessons from Scott Conroy for the last few years and he is a great teacher.  He is very positive and patient when explaining concepts and wants to make sure you get it.

I HIGHLY recommend him for all ages, instruments, and skill levels!!

Anthony Harris

Scott has helped me immensely in advanced music theory.  His professional, yet friendly demeanor makes it easy to learn complex topics.  I began lessons as an amateur pianist and now feel confident on the keys for any scenario.  His rate is very fair for the depth of knowledge that he provides.

I highly recommend stopping by his welcoming studio to enhance your playing, no matter what stage you’re at!

Anthony Gangi

Not much to say other than Scott is excellent.  I never took music lessons before, and at the age of 58, it shouldn’t be a surprise that I didn’t have a clue.

Patient and taking me through practices one step at a time, I couldn’t be happier learning to play violin/fiddle.

I’d write more accolades about Scott but I want to go practice .

Paavo Ogren

Scott is not only a great teacher, he is also a great player & has endless patience.  I’m currently taking mandolin lessons, but I play guitar & may start working on the fiddle soon & he plays them all well.

It’s also cool to see your teacher out playing in local venues.  Highly recommended.
