My name is Scott and I've been a music teacher for more than a decade. I've taught piano and uke lessons to kids as young as three and guitar lessons starting around age 10. I'm patient and gentle with a passion for helping kids learn to play and LOVE music. I'm classically trained with a Music Composition degree from Seattle Pacific University and I love playing and performing rock, motown, classical, and folk guitar.
My approach to lessons is to blend academia with musical "common sense." Your child will learn to read music and chord charts and that sort of thing, but they will also learn how to play a solo, learn songs by ear, and even write their own music. I firmly believe the only difference between a beginner and a super star is practice and inspiration. With than in mind, I treat each of my students like they could be the next Jimi Hendrix, Bach, or Bonnie Rait.
I also firmly believe in getting kids excited about lessons and making sure they have fun. I strive to never be combative, and instead try to be encouraging and affirming, seeking out music that will keep your child interested in music.
