Scott is a true professional. He was very accommodating regarding all request and was even willing to learn new music. Scott arrived on time to my surprise wedding dressed appropriately and played beautifully. Scott was very easy to coordinate plans with for our event. I felt Scott helped to make an already special day even more special. Thanks Scott, I would definitely recommend you to a friend and would keep you in mind for any future events.
Scott plays an electric-classical Godin, an instrument that combines the warmth and intimacy of a classical guitar with the versatility of an electric instrument. A microphone will be made available free of charge upon request. Self–powered amplification is available for performances outside (e.g., parks, beaches, vineyards, boats, etc.).
Based out of Brooklyn, Scott serves New York City as well as New York state, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How much do you charge?
Rates are based on a variety of factors, and generally range from $300-$800. A deposit is required upon the signing of the contract.
What about music before the ceremony?
Typically the pre-ceremony music (Prelude) is 20–30 min. long. Therefore, if your ceremony begins at 5 PM, you want to hire your performer from 430.
Do you use amplification?
Yes. I provide the necessary equipment and have battery-powered amplification for events where no power is available.
Do you have any specific setup requirements? I require one electrical outlet and one armless chair.
Do you take requests? I am always looking to expand my repertoire, and will typically be able to learn new pieces at no extra cost.
What about ceremony music? In general, I recommend choosing one song for the wedding party, one for each partner processing, and something for the recessional when the ceremony is over. I play lots of weddings and am happy to provide recommendations should you need them.
What do you wear?
Formal black attire, unless otherwise specified.
When do you arrive?
45 min. before the agreed-upon start time.
Do we meet in person?
Typically all arrangements can be made by phone, e-mail, or Skype. However if you prefer to meet in person, I am happy to schedule a meeting in New York City.
When is the final payment due?
The final payment is due the day of your event. For weddings I recommend delegating payment delivery to a family member or someone in the wedding party.
