I'm available to play music at all kinds of events such as: corporate functions, private parties, weddings, celebrations, religious services, restaurants, ect. I also teach guitar lessons of many different styles such as classical, jazz, rock, metal, funk, blues ect. For sound samples and video, check my website

I'm a classically trained guitarist, with a repertoire that spans five centuries and multiple styles. In 2013, I started studying classical/spanish guitar with Norm Ruiz at Columbia College Chicago, and I won a performance scholarship award. In December 2015, I graduated from Columbia with a Bachelor of Music degree.
My classical guitar studies started in 2005, when I spent a year in Los Angeles studying at Musician's Institute in Hollywood. While in L.A, I studied with Grammy Award winning classical guitarist/composer, Evan Hirschelman. Evan helped me to become a more technically sound, well-rounded, and expressive musician. An injury to the median nerve in my right hand cut my studies short, forcing me to move back to Chicago, where my hand was surgically repaired.
Once my hand healed, I continued my studies at Prairie State College and joined the PSC jazz band. I won a most outstanding player award at the Lake County Community College Jazz Contest. I graduated from Prairie State with a Liberal Arts degree and decided to dedicate myself primarily to classical guitar.
Upon earning my Associates Degree from PSC, I developed a repertoire of over 30 solo guitar tunes, half of them classical compositions, the other half includes jazz tunes, popular songs, and a few of my own compositions.

I've been invited to share my music at multiple weddings, parties, fundraisers, and restaurants (Stray Bar, Cilantro, Svagatti's, Grape&Grain, the Keith House, and Glessner House Museum) all over Chicago and its suburbs.
Currently, I'm teaching guitar at Down Home Guitars in Frankfort Illinois, the Beverly Arts Center, and many other places in the Chicagoland area.

Scott performed really well at our multi-generational family party. We were not sure how the flow would go; ie, concert style or background music and that had nothing to do with Scott and all to do with the guests. Scott was super easy to work with and the outcome was a blend of both environments. Sound quality was great and all were pleased. We heard he also does stand-up comedy, but that was only revealed at the end...unfortunately.

Scott Reichard Guitar’s Response:

Thanks for the kind words Elizabeth. Well the stand up comedy detail was a bit of sarcasm on my part, but you never know what the future entails.

Scott did an amazing job with our wedding ceremony. He learned a number of new songs and traveled to play them for us a month before our event. He even offered to attend the rehearsal! Each phone conversation or meeting was handled in a very professional manner. Scott's performance during the ceremony was outstanding. Guests commented that they enjoyed his guitar and were moved by his performance. He nailed the songs we had asked him to learn, and brought his own microphone and speaker setup; saving us some serious $ from the DJ. Definitely hire Scott for your event!
