About Scott Laurence
Originally from New York, Scott lived in Washington D.C. for 3 years before he moved to Boulder, Colorado with his wife and 3.5 year old son in 2019.
Scott knew he was meant to be a musician from an early age. “When I was a kid, I always had music in my head. I got a guitar from a friend in high school and played it nonstop. Somewhere along the way, it just became obvious to me that I would keep at it my whole life.” Playing and teaching guitar is a passion for Scott, and he is fortunate to be able to share his rich musical experiences with his students.
Through the years, Scott has collaborated with singer/songwriters and recorded several albums with various artists. He formed instrumental rock bands (HIGH NORTH and VIU) and toured along the US East coast. He is also passionate about collecting and playing vintage pedals and guitars and can guide you to find the instrument and tone that is right for you.
Hugely influenced by the music of the 60s and 70s, Scott has created his unique blend of atmospheric rock that goes from dreamy soundscapes to heavy riffs and everything in between. Improvisation is a key element of his sound which requires understanding band dynamics and using your ear to guide the tune. Having played hundreds of shows since the early 2000s, he’s well versed at forming successful bands and rocking out on stage.
Scott customizes his lessons based on the goals of his students. Even if you never picked up a guitar before, Scott’s patient approach will have you playing songs and having fun from the first lesson. Do you want to learn the techniques of songwriting? Form your first band? Understand chords, scales, and theory? Improve upon the skills you already know and bring your playing to the next level? Scott can guide you to reach your musical goals.
Outside of work, Scott enjoys interviewing musicians & artists on their creative process for the podcast “Frequency Range,” which he is about to launch. He is also recording music and forming a new band.
