A Patient Teacher
“My 10-year-old son Colin has had the pleasure of taking drum lessons from Scott McClelland for more than a year and he enjoys it very much. Scott has a great rapport with my son and he teaches him at his own pace. Even when Colin is having a difficult time with something, Scotty patiently works with him until the concept/skill is fully understood and mastered. I can see Colin’s progression over the short period of time that Scott has been working with him, and I am more than pleased that he has found a terrific hobby and a teacher that he really connects with. Scott has made my son’s experience with music a very positive one.”

“I enjoy taking music lessons with Scott McClelland. I enjoy them because he is a good teacher. Scott McClelland knows how to play many instruments very well, like the drums, bass guitar, guitar, and trumpet. He explains how to play in-depth with the instrument of your choice. Scott has a very well-organized system of teaching so you have fun playing your instrument. The way he teaches is easy to learn and fun. Scott is very “in the know” with the instruments and music in general. Scott is very professional with his classes. That is why I enjoy music lessons with Scott.”
Fun & Technically Informative
“I would like to take this opportunity to say how pleased we are with the progress our sons Curtis and Blake have made taking guitar and bass lessons from Scott McClelland (Music Exploration). The classes are fun and technically informative, and the boys thoroughly enjoy the time they spend with Scott learning their instrument. If you are considering registering in music lessons, we highly recommend giving Scott at Music Exploration a call.” - Mike and Karen H.
Excellent Teaching Methods
“I don’t think that there is anything that needs to be changed or improved on because all of your teaching methods are excellent! I like that lessons are not like school where stuff is just given to us and the teacher just tells us to figure it out! I think that using the metronome for everything is good because it improves rhythm, and I like the idea of using that thing called “the routine,” because it helps with timing and note recognition. In conclusion, I think that all methods are good and there is nothing that has to be improved on.”
