A native of Maine, Scott studied music at Ithaca College in Ithaca, New York, receiving a bachelor’s in music in 1983. A multi-instrumentalist, he has performed extensively on piano, organ, guitar, clarinet, saxophone, flute, oboe, and recorder. Scott spent several years teaching in public and parochial schools in New England.
Involved in church music since his teen years, Scott realized in 1987 that his avocation was becoming his vocation. “Music expresses so much about us, much more than words alone ever could,” he explains.
“If we are going to share with each other what we have learned about life and God, we must use all of our arts. Words by themselves are not enough. Music, storytelling, movement, architecture, visual and technological arts are all needed to help us understand who we are and what God has planned for us.”
Scott has served as director of music at parishes in Indiana, Illinois, Connecticut, and Maine. He has performed in concert and in the studio with Marty Haugen, David Haas, Michael Joncas, Jeanne Cotter, Bobby Fisher, and Bob Hurd.
Currently, Scott teaches yoga in the Indianapolis area.
