Hi, I'm Scott.A Dedicated World Class Educator, Mentor, Coach & Music Specialist. Changing lives one note at a time.
Whether you’ve been learning for a while or started out and need guidance. I’m here to help develop your strengths and creativity.
Can I skip to the part where I’m awesome?
Oh, if only everything was so simple as to skip to the best part! If you had dessert before your main meal every time, you’d never look forward to the treat at the end- or enjoy the journey along the way. You’d miss out on all the extra flavours and textures. It’s the same with music. Music’s about being creative and the whole lotta benefits that you’d miss if you could already play everything. When you play and create- you get the full menu. Sure there’ll be some dishes you might not get on with to start with - but if you always have the same, you’ll never know what it’s like to try something new.
You’ve gotta start somewhere if you wanna make the final cut. You could continue with the same mistakes. Confused with info overload, no clarity or feedback. Or, with a world class, educator, mentor & coach. You’ll get someone who understands your needs & listens. Someone who works with you for meaningful results, with you in the driving seat.
You'll even discover the same vocal technique that helped Bradley Cooper win a Grammy! (for 'A Star is Born')
You focus on what pieces you want...
... and let someone, who turns dreams into reality , show you how to get the results you want.
You want someone who:
1. Is fun but dedicated and professional
I'm committed to help you find your voice and refocus how you play, so you'll always be ready for when your agent calls. Nowadays, you gotta be flexible. Which means we’ll check out different styles. I’ll help you master the essentials, so you’ll save yourself a ton of time and frustration.
2. Relates to and understands their clients
You want someone with enthusiasm- not only show you the ropes, but help you focus, and give you clarity. I’ll help break things down and explain them in easy to understand, simple terms. So no matter your age or experience, learning music is fun and easy. You’ll be confident using building blocks behind masterpieces to create your own. Music Grades aren't the world, but they are handy when it comes to credentials. I'm proud of my student's 100% exam pass rate.
3. Trustworthy & reliable- Accomplished like a Mandolorian
Satisfied clients all over the globe love using my simple solutions to get started. 17 years in a ton of roles and schools- newbie through Senior leader.

Want to know more about me?
My clients love their increase in confidence when they work with me. Their self-esteem improves and they want to learn more. They love the way I pinpoint their exact weakness - and show them how to conquer it.
So where does all my passion and enthusiasm come from? Here’s the story.
Music and Drama offered me a way to face my inner fears
IF YOU WANT IT ENOUGH- YOU'LL GET IT
I’ll skip the gory details, but boy, those memories- when I had to retrain my muscles! Surgery put my Trombone and Vocal hopes on the shelf for a while. My fingers still worked fine for the Piano and I could still hold drumsticks! It was my chance for mass songwriting & composing.
My clients love my resilient approach. It’s inspired so many to keep going when they feel like giving up.
Success stories from Asia: A Whole New World
15 years teaching in the UK- it was time to go truly international and spend more time with my wife and daughters. In 2018, we arrived in Hong Kong with only 4 suitcases and nowhere to live. While I taught at an International School, I helped inspire students with awesome Chinese Drum techniques. My extensive rhythmic groove stockpile got even bigger, playing with the Hong Kong Samba School. You know you sound great when the Police wanna join in. But we got shut down ‘coz the neighbours complained!
‘Thriller in Manila’ is an event I’ll remember, including the responsibility that came with it! More about this one another day…
Further international success

Wish Upon A Star
Well, who would’ve thought? The way we arrived in HK, we’d spent Christmas Day at Disneyland? Covid-19 bought our Asian adventure to an unexpected early close. Back home in the UK since Feb. 2020. Lessons online has been the norm. Though I miss Disney like crazy, I got so many magical memories to inspire my clients. Make your wish upon a star become part of your world. All it takes is faith, trust and some Pixie dust right? Let's be honest though. With you destined to learn new things, you won't wonder when your life will begin. I make magic with music everyday. Let me help you do the same.
Thanks so much for dropping by. I’m so pleased our love of music has connected us.
I look forward to taking the next step together.
Now make the choice to hear your voice and do the next right thing!
