Fairfax Guitar Studio is my one man show in West Hollywood. Guitar is my first love and I want to convey what I feel and the enjoyment I get from playing and share it with you.

In a relaxed setting, ideal for one-on-one lessons, I focus on a blend of theory, technique, and creativity—the core of my teaching approach.

– Building songs by understanding Rhythm, Melody & Harmony


– The Concepts of the Riff Screen vs the Arrangement screen
– How to add your ideas to a track and Quantization
– Build backing and accompaniment tracks to play along with

A Dramatic Headline by Scot

“I can’t say enough how amazing Scot’s guitar lessons are, makes it fun & easy to retain the information. I’ve only had few classes & have learned enough to play my favorite songs on electric & even start experimenting!”


“Scot really helped me out to become a better guitarist. He made music theory easy to learn and not stress full. In just a few short weeks I advanced surprisingly fast than I ever thought possibly. I highly recommend him.”


“Scot has been teaching my 10 year old son for almost a year now and we are very happy with his progress. I am really grateful for the individualized attention that Scott has for my child, the patience and professionalism.”
