Please check my audio and video samples! I am a classical guitarist which means I have a set list of music, and I don't really take requests (with a few exceptions!). I just play, providing the perfect background music for your event. I have a huge repertoire that is always expanding and I will provide guitar music that is diverse and varied. Private parties, lunch or dinner events and certain planned events are perfect for classical guitar!

I have been performing on the classical guitar since 1984. I look forward to performing at your event!

1984-1989 University of Southern California, Los Angeles.

Scott is supremely talented and personable. He included some background history on classical guitar music along with his selections, which our audience appreciated very much. I highly recommend Scott
