Independent Students have the opportunity to receive personalized instruction of my method (Phase I, II and III) without the cost or time commitment of private lessons. Each Phase focuses on a different subject. Phase I – Primary Skills for the Classical Guitarist focuses on technique. Phase II Secondary Skills focuses on special skills and their integration into your repertoire. Phase III focus on practice techniques that will develop musicianship, technical, memory and performance skills. (For more on my method and the Phases go HERE.)
Here’s How We Work
Independent Studies students will work through each chapter of the particular Phase being studied. Each chapter is composed of written and video instructions, as well as practice-along-with-Scott videos. The student then practices their assignments listed at the end of each chapter and sends a video tape of their Independent Studies assignment for my review and comments. Students should expect a response within 2-3 days. Then it’s on to the next chapter.
Phase Pricing Structure
You’ll be encouraged to send one set of video assignments per week or every two weeks, depending on the Phase that you’re working. (Phase I requires one video assignment sent each week.) The cost of participating is the Independent Studies program is $79.99 per month. Simply choose the Independent Studies box when subscribing.

Your Time Commitment
