I normally go for doing a full musical spectrum. Movie, medieval, blues, soul, popular, renaissance, neoclassical, jazz, fusion, folk, country, and other diversities are his styles. Flowing themes, victorian/romantic style originals are of great interest to me too.

When on acoustic guitar, mandolin, & cherango his technique is unique' finger-picking, multi-tuning, subdued & folk oriented. Vocally more 'on' when in contact with the vibrations of a good in-tune acoustic guitar, in a quiet setting . . . just a personal preference.

Back when, parents encouraged piano lessons as well as sports . . . family is a great artistic inspiration.

' Also . . . Many thanks to Bob Berg and the Dessalet Clan for great help & support with 'Remember When' and other musical projects . . . Bob Jr., Carrie, Sharon, Bob Sr., & Nancy.

Following several recitals, competitions and graduation, came a new career in what was once a wide open area of music. Playing by ear, sight reading, arranging, & modifying songs were certainly second nature by now. Piano soon came to be a natural pastime.
Scott Played 'Romantic Era Classics' while at Waldorf College, Mankato State, & NMU . . . recitals, jazz ensemble, voice, chord charting, theory seminars, classical guitar, and percussion classes.

A four year enlistment in the Air Force, Strategic Air Command, did not darken his creativity. He continued lucrative work performing, teaching guitar & piano with others, doing sheet music arrangements of pop songs. . . A firm knowledge of structure simplified his chording and charting.

soloing in any given key is always fun. Transposing and chording in any key . . . quickly finding vocal harmony parts. . . 415 original compositions.

Professionally performed over 2500 well known tunes. Reads from Hal Leonard, Shaumm, Eckstein.

Scott is a fish-out-of-water when not performing, but those rare now-shows can still be fun. Occasionally he will perform alien-sounding custom-fit modes and scales intended to fit moods and ambience of each selection. They are intriguing.

He presently performs some of the Victorian / Classical Era Piano Masterpieces . . .(Chopin, Debussy, Beethoven, Mozart, etc.) playing live medleys and seques of tunes which compliment each other.

Recently published two solo piano C.D. projects with BMI Performing Rights Organization ... Remember When & Once Again 34 original selections have been published thus far. These works were published through Air Deluxe Music BMI (Bob Berg), 23 Music Square East, Suite 301, Nashville,Tenn., 37203-3628. (615)726-1204.

Remember When was first pressed in 1993, then used throughout North & South America & Western Europe as the first C.D. ROM demonstration project by Rimage Corporation, Bloomington, MN.

Selections from 'Remember When' are used in Malasia, as reported by publishers of the 74th Foreign Accounting Dept.

Scott's Later C.D. release entitled World Majestic is an international collaboration with percussionist/film script writer Benjamin Tychman, including classical excerpts, original compositions & vocals. 'World Majestic' has received considerable air-play on AIR FRANCE Radio.

A 28-minute video of 'World Majestic' was filmed by Videoscope Marketing. Monique's Company Jazz Dancers also assisted - (Eagan, MN), as well as Dakota Co. Cable T.V.

In April and May of 2006, one of his instrumental piano selections from 'Remember When', 'Building Blocks', reached # 6 in popularity, for three weeks, and remained on the classical chart ratings of for 18 consecutive weeks.
