Scott taught my son Jonah for about six years. During that time, Jonah definitely developed a lifelong love of music. But the sessions with Scott were much more than piano lessons. Jonah learned a quiet self-confidence that came directly from sitting in Scott’s studio once a week, and playing on his own on the days between lessons. Jonah’s life changed around him — he matured, grew, developed — but one constant in his life remained the weekly time with Scott, learning to compose, write, and play music. The positive impact Scott had on Jonah’s life can’t be overstated. It was incredible to see and experience, and we will be forever grateful. Thank you!
Mr. Anderson is one of the finest musicians I have ever had the privilege of working with. His depth of knowledge about a plethora of musical topics extending from classical performance to jazz improvisation to musical composition is truly astonishing. Mr. Anderson’s musical education has guided my playing from elementary school to university music school, and has paved a pathway of success for me as a pianist and a composer in the professional music world.
Words can not describe the positive impact that studying with Scott Anderson has had on both of my children’s lives. He has not only provided exceptional training in the areas of classical and jazz piano and music theory, but he has taken their overall musicality to a whole other level, encouraging them to explore the more creative side of music through composition, music technology and voice. Scott approaches teaching with the perfect balance of structure and creativity, and most importantly has been wholeheartedly dedicated to helping my children reach their (lofty) musical goals. In the 10 years that my children have studied under Scott, he has inspired them in ways I couldn’t have imagined. Scott is the real deal!
