About me

As a teacher, Scott has had 6 years of experience teaching in the United States. During his studies at Indiana University, he held the position of Associate Instructor of Piano, which involved teaching secondary piano classes and private lessons to music majors and non-music majors of all levels. Additionally, he prepared students for piano proficiency exams every semester, giving him valuable experience teaching technical training and thorough preparation for high-pressure situations.

As a performer, Scott has been active from the first year that he took piano lessons. He was the first-prize winner of three national competitions (Knigge 2008, Shean 2002, and National Music Festival 1998), and has debuted as soloist with some of the leading orchestras in Canada: with the Toronto and Winnipeg Symphonies in 2006, and with Edmonton Symphony in 2004. In Edmonton, he received re-engagements in 2005 and 2007.

In competitions, Scott has repeatedly shown his consistency: internationally, he has won 3rd prizes at the Corpus Christi International Competition (2006) and at the World Piano Competition in Cincinnati Ohio (2005); and locally, he has won prizes from the Indianapolis Matinee Musicale (2009, 1st prize), the Women's Musical Club of Winnipeg (1999-2000), and the Manitoba Registered Music Teachers' Association (1997, 1st prize), among others. Scott has also received grants from the Canada Council for the Arts and the Manitoba Arts Council.

Specialties

Scott's positive attitude and easy-going nature will erase fear from his students' attitudes towards piano lessons and performing. Music should be, above all else, enjoyed!
