Why I work well with kids?
Patience and positive reinforcement are two of my strongest attributes. I am very easy-going and friendly and I’ve always been able to communicate well with kids. I still have the same spark I did when I first picked up the guitar at the age of 12, and I think children can easily relate to me because of that.
Scott H. Bio and Resume
Location of Birth: Maryland
Scott formed his first band in high school, playing guitar and singing in a 3-piece modern rock band. He continued his musical education in college, studying classical music appreciation and music theory. He also graduated from the Audio Institute of America with honors. Writing and recording as a solo artist for many years, he eventually began playing small clubs and open mics which led him to his next band.
Invisible Republic, an indie rock band, played many of the larger venues in the Baltimore area and released their debut album “Eleven” via an independent label. After playing with the band for over 6 years, he was recruited by The Cheaters, another area band, following the recommendation of mutual producer Frank Marchand.
Playing bass and singing harmonies and vocals in both bands, Scott continued to play solo acoustic gigs as well. With the Cheaters, Scott has played many venues in the northeast U.S., including Bally’s Mainstage in Atlantic City and the Maryland State Fair in Timonium, opening for Bret Michaels. Scott continues to write, record, and pursue his various musical projects.
