Reviews and Testimonials
Scott is a great teacher! He is patient, encouraging, and a bit of a stickler; this is what you want in a guitar teacher! I distinctly remember coming in not knowing my Major Scales and him politely but sternly asking me if I wanted to be good. I respected Scott and his playing so much that I never showed up unprepared again. He could tell that I was into music but I needed that extra kick. Scott also helped me prepare for college auditions which was a huge help! Fast forward twenty years and I am now a full-time Guitar Teacher and Musician living the dream in Southern California. Thank you Scott!!
I enjoy taking lessons at Stancill’s Guitar Studio because the service given here is excellent. From the very beginning I was given the opportunity of playing any type of music I wished, and was taught to understand the music – not just play it. The studio itself is well-equipped with many types of guitars and sound systems, even a repair shop.
Tonight I received the award of “Best New Artist” from Washington Area Music Association! Thanks for your kind thoughts, prayers, and votes! Hope to see you in March at my concerts in the Strathmore, my new album will be available…
As one of Scott's more "senior" students, I can attest that his style works for both young and old. I first met Scott at one of his Harmonica Master Classes, before I even owned a guitar. Several months later, after purchasing my first guitar, Scott was the first call I made, and he helped me learn and enjoy the instrument. I particularly looked forward to his performance opportunities, both recitals and bands.
