“I started to take drum lessons with Scott when I was little kid and through out those years I learned to really love the drums and love drumming. Scott has a way with his instruction that makes you want to learn and at the same time, have a lot of fun! He has been a great influence on me and my playing that I still mention his name when someone asks me who’s one of my favorite drummers. I have a lot of respect for Scott because ultimately he was the one who taught me the skills that I use today as a professional drummer. Scott is the man!”

“I studied with Scott Robertson for three years before attending the Jazz Studies program at Capilano College.  Scott’s well prepared, informative lessons gave me a great foundation for my subsequent musical opportunities.  I’ve been playing professionally now for about 14 years in many diverse situations ranging from Cruise Ships, Touring Bands, Big Band and numerous small groups in pop and jazz music.  I still ask Scott questions on any area of drumming that I come across where I’m uncertain.  Scott Robertson is an authority of the drum set.” – Kristian Braathen     “As my first drum teacher Scott gave me the foundation I needed to build a career as a professional drummer. His lesson plan is very effective in developing a thorough and well rounded understanding of music and drumming. I feel very fortunate that I was able to start out studying with a teacher as skilled and educated as Scott. I would highly recommend Scott to any one interested in developing as a musician and drummer.” -Nathan Wylie (AU4 & Stabilo)
