About


Scott's vast and varied repertoire covers Classical, Spanish and Romantic classics as well as highly individual and intelligent arrangements of popular songs.

Scott has been playing the guitar since he was ten and has spent his life teaching and honing his skills as a performer. A specialist in classical and Spanish guitar styles, he can draw from a huge repertoire of pieces ranging from Elizabethan dances to classical sonatas, romantic ballads and 20th century jazz standards. His mastery of the guitar also means he is able to arrange and prepare almost any modern pop song by request (given some notice!) which can then be performed at your function.

Scott began guitar lessons at the relatively late age of thirteen but quickly progressed through the grades reaching grade 8 just three years later before going on to study music at the University of Liverpool. On graduating he moved to Spain where for the next year he studied the guitar in its true spiritual home – Andalucía – travelling around the south of Spain holding recitals, busking and playing in bars and restaurants. This proved to be a real Baptism of fire as he found the Spanish people both appreciative and critical, which meant he really had to be on the top of his game!

On return to the UK Scott set up his private teaching practice in Merseyside where he shared his love for the guitar while continuing his performing work. During this time he began working with local bands playing a range of indie and country music on tour and in the studio.

Scott now divides his time between performing as a classical soloist at functions and events, teaching the guitar and music in Sheffield, writing, recording and performing his own acoustic folk music, and producing local artists at his home studio.

All this means that whatever your musical needs, Scott is sure to devise and perform beautifully elegant and refined music to help make your event extra special.

Scott was brilliant from the very start. He got in touch with us prior to the day as promised and discussed what songs we wanted and how we wanted things to work. We booked Scott to play before and after our ceremony and it really was very special. I would recommend Scott to anyone.

Brilliant... All the guests commented on his playing and how much they enjoyed it. Nothing was too much bother for him and he learnt a new song for us and left a copy of it for us in a little scroll, which was a lovely surprise as we were not expecting this. I would definitely use him again and recommend him.
