About Scott

At age five I wanted to become a rock star, so my parents bought me a guitar and enrolled me in lessons. Music has been part of my life ever since. In fourth grade, I had the opportunity to learn trumpet in an after school music program; nothing has captivated me more. In high school, I played in the jazz band, wind ensemble, honor bands, marching band, and successfully earned a spot as lead trumpet in the Madison Scouts drum and bugle corps. 

College brought me more opportunities, leading me to pursue a degree in music education at Bob Cole Conservatory of Music, California State University, Long Beach. During my time there, I played in numerous ensembles from orchestras to pop bands, learning from some of the best musicians in LA. 

Life has now led me to the Pacific Northwest and Renton Technical College, where I am pursuing Instrument Repair Technologies. 

Outside of music, I love backpacking, hiking, fly fishing, and being outside when I can. I take panoramic picture with my film camera. And I never became a rock star.
