A few words
What are Students Saying?
I highly recommend James Scott if you are looking for a guitar teacher and coach. James teaches in a way that allows you to learn and improve the critical skills and knowledge base you need while playing the songs that motivated you to pickup the guitar in the first place. He adapts lessons to your interests and keeps you motivated.
Excellent and kind instructor. Builds skill each week! Patient and creates a love of music and playing by allowing the kids to play what they love to listen to. Exceptional skill set instruction! We have seen true musical development without kids losing heart. James has a gift of working with all ages. We always look forward to a guitar lesson with James!
The lesson was great! I really felt like I progressed a lot in that one session.
Excellent lesson, I’ve already learned a lot from James after one lesson and I’m looking forward to putting his teachings into practice. As well as having a great insight into music he’s also a top guy just to talk to as well! 5 Stars!
James-Scott is not just one of my sons favorite teachers, but he is also one of his favorite people. He looks forward to his lessons and is always energized and excited about what he has learned. James is patient and kind and has a wonderful sense of humor which combine to make an ideal teacher of anything. We have recently moved over to online lessons and I was pleased to find my son seemed to enjoy them just as much as he does the in-person. James does an outstanding job of selecting material personalized to the individual to keep them engaged and excited. We simply can not speak highly enough of lessons with James!
