Hello, I'm Scot Taber. 


I've always loved the nylon string guitar, but I struggled to keep my students and myself motivated with every song I played. Everything changed when I realized that I could incorporate music from all over the world into the classical/fingerstyle way of playing. Truly the entire universe of music is at our fingertips.

My Story


From rock and jazz to classical and flamenco, I studied every style I could as a teenager - setting off a long journey as a professional guitarist, teacher and performer. Committed to music education, I founded a successful and thriving music school in San Diego, and now I'm sharing what I know and helping others get the most out of the guitar through online courses, tutorials and virtual classes.
