What students are saying about Private Lessons with Scott August


"This past week, I had the distinct pleasure of having my first lesson with Scott. I had signed up for a 30 min lesson however, I got my money's worth as we ran over by 10-15 mins. [Scott] tries not to schedule back-to-back lessons just so it allows for some overage. We started with basic embouchure and a suggestion that...has allowed me to get to the second octave notes easier as well as smoothing out the fundamental octave notes. ...we covered several topics and basic drills that I think will be beneficial to furthering my end blown progress. It has already!!

Needless to say, I would recommend anyone interested in improving their end blown playing to consider taking a lesson or two. I don't think you'll be sorry."
