Meet Scott Lawrence

Learn Jazz, Blues, Rock, Country, Classical.

At this time, I am only teaching over Zoom or some other virtual platform for now. My virtual lessons have produced great results.

I believe it’s important to learn the basics and develop a firm grounding in reading and basic technique. I also teach learning by ear, and we can bring in music from any genre. I’ve taught students Fleetwood Mac tunes, themes from video games, Adele, Justin Bieber, you name it. I can also teach you how to play Jazz, Blues, Rock, Latin, Country and Classical.

All ages welcome, all levels: beginning, intermediate and advanced.

Currently I have students from seven years old to 60 plus.

If you’re brand new to piano, I have tried and true methods to help you get started. My students tell me I’m very patient and my lessons are fun.

If you already read music, I can help you improve your reading and sight-reading. I can teach you how to learn your favorite tunes off recordings by ear. We can learn how to read "fake" books (books with just melody lines and chord symbols) and play all the chords required. I also teach Jazz theory and we can learn Jazz Standards. I started playing piano when I was eight years old. I played in blues and rock bands in junior high school and discovered Dave Brubeck when I was 13. I started playing professionally at age 19. I have 40+ years of performing, recording, and touring experience. I have played all popular styles professionally, in small clubs, theaters, and stadiums including Carnegie Hall and Oakland Coliseum. I’ve worked with artists such as Jesse Colin Young, Country Joe, Norton Buffalo, and Magic Slim. I have recorded on more than 25 albums. I earned a Masters Degree in Jazz Studies from North Texas State. 

You can hear examples of some of my recordings at http://www.stompyjones.com Give a listen to “Checkpoint” or the solo on “Booked.”
