Welcome to Guitar Strength!

" I want to express my sincere thanks for the work Scott has done with my daughter.  Scott is Tori's 4th Guitar teacher and the only one who truly inspired her.  As a father, I wanted the best for my girl and it saddened me to go from one guitar instructor to another, watching the joy of playing getting lost in the process. Scott is the only one who connected with her from day one and got her passionate about guitar again. Scott took her from treading water to playing advanced pieces that she's proud of in less than 9 months, progress impressive to family, friends, and her school's music department.
I wish I could turn back the clock and have had her playing those years with guitar lessons from Scott.  That said, we appreciate Scott much more because of it."
-Bob & Tori, Warwick, RI

“A year ago I decided to take my lead playing to the next level and met with Scott.  He quickly assessed my experience level, zeroed in on my weaknesses, and helped me further develop my own playing style.  Whether it is refining an original work or learning my guitar heroes’ solos, he is always patient and extremely effective.  Scott’s expertise, knowledge, and experience are noteworthy; and his enthusiasm is contagious.  Bottom line:  In 27 years of guitar playing, writing, and recording, choosing to study with Scott has been the best decision I’ve made!”  
-Waco, Newport, RI

"Scott's incredible knowledge of the guitar is matched only by his patience and his keen eye for detail. He is always able to understand exactly what is causing me difficulty in my playing and is always immediately able to remedy it. It was thanks to his guidance that I was able to get into Berklee's twelve week summer program. Scott is an amazing guitarist, but more than that he is a natural born teacher."
-Justin, Brown University, Providence, RI


"Thank you again for a great lesson today...but just as important, thank you for jamming a few minutes for me. It is truly inspirational to see a true virtuoso play. Thank you for the inspiration as well as the motivation. I can't say enough how grateful I am to have you as an instructor and mentor, Scott."
-Barry, West Warwick, RI
