Scott is the first person to have recorded the complete cycle of J.S. Bach's Sonatas and Partitas on viola and can be heard playing solo Bach, Paganini Caprices, and his own compositions on various soundtracks for film and TV. A former fellow at the Montalvo Arts Center in California, Scott served as committee member, judge, and performer for the inaugural Maurice Gardner Composition Competition and has been commissioned by the Primrose International Viola Competition and the American Viola Society. Scott and his wife, Tanya Solomon, have been performing together for more than twenty years as the award-winning Slapin-Solomon Viola Duo and maintain private teaching studios (vln., vla., and composition) in western Massachusetts as well as worldwide via Skype.
