This is how 2 referees rated Scott:
I am a patient teacher with experience teaching children and adults at all levels of ability.I am a Canadian Fiddler with musical roots in many styles and traditions, including Bluegrass, Texas swing, Gypsy swing, Scotish, Irish, and Canadian old time, so feel that I have something to offer everyone!
Six years experience teaching private lessons, group lessons, and instructing at music camps.
I am Suzuki trained and therefore deliver all my lessons with a focus on playing by ear. I teach from sheet music if requested, but will be work elements of ear training into every lesson.

I can highly recommend Scott to anyone looking for a violin/fiddle teacher! :-)
I am so happy that you are enjoying your lessons, and I am grateful for your feed back.
Firstly, it may seem as though this is stating the obvious but Scott knows his subject. Not all who set-up as tutors in various fields have the advanced level of knowledge to instruct others. Secondly, he has the 'consultant' approach in that he doesn't have the 'one size fits all' mentality. He treats people as individuals and 'prescribes', in the manner of a consultant, the appropriate course of action to help the student to achieve his goals. Thirdly, he is an effective 'transceiver' in that he has good listening skills to receive information and good communication skills to transmit to the student his thoughts and instructions.
Oh, and he has a pretty good sense of humour. Who was it that said Canadians don't laugh?
