Scott also teaches bass
My teaching method is generally based on the blues which I consider to be the fundamental element in understanding all modern styles of music. I incorporate ear training by studying specific soloists, and by teaching their solos. I teach all levels and styles of modern American music, from jazz standards and solos note for note, jamming Hendrix or Led Zeppelin (and understanding their roots), or playing acoustic folk. Whether your focus is jamming on the back porch or playing concert halls, I will help you achieve your goals.
