Scott J Simon, PhD - Acoustic Jazz, Americana, Classical & Latin Guitarist in Austin, Texas.

Scott is an award winning professional guitarist in Austin, Texas. He has been performing all over the USA for 10+ years, both as a solo artist and with bands. Scott's beautiful and sophisticated playing will create the perfect upscale ambiance for your event.

Scott can perform Jazz standards in the styles of Joe Pass and George Benson, Country and Americana fingerpicking in the style of Chet Atkins, as well as Classical and Latin guitar favorites.

Scott studied jazz and classical guitar at the University of North Texas (PhD 2005). He was fortunate to have renowned teachers such as Mike Stern (guitarist for Miles Davis), Steve Masakowski (guitarist for Bobby McFerrin), and Joe Diorio (Pat Metheny's guitar teacher) and more.

Great music is like fine wine...

Scott arrived early to set up at my event and began on time. He is wonderful, professional and friendly. He played instrumental guitar throughout the cocktail hour and during dinner he sang and played. He adjusted the volume of each location and that was great because I didn't have a lot of extra time to worry about that. Scott was the perfect musician for my venue and my guests were complimentary about the music. I would hire Scott if another opportunity arose. Thanks for a job well done Scott!

Scott added that perfect element to our Spring Fling festival this past Saturday. His singing and acoustic guitar playing was lively and entertaining. Everyone loved his talent. I would book again! He is very professional and accommodating.
