Solo Guitarist Scott Ouellette

Scott Ouellette is a self-taught classical/solo guitarist living on the east coast of the United States. Scott first began playing the guitar at age 7, mostly strumming chords to Fleetwood Mac, Jim Croce and the Eagles. He soon discovered the sounds of Andres Segovia, Christopher Parkening and Konrad Ragossnig. Not having a teacher available, he used the recordings of classical guitarists as his guide, and taught himself how to read music during the process. By the age of 16, Scott had already graced the stage of The Palladium in New York, performed on television, and was performing professionally. After graduating high school, Scott was accepted to Berklee College of Music in Boston Massachusetts where he studied guitar performance and theory. Scott would spend the next twenty years developing his compositional skills, creating teaching methods for beginner, intermediate and advanced guitar students, as well as building his online presence through the internet. Scott currently composes modern solo guitar music for nylon string guitar. He also arranges popular music for solo guitar as well, and creates videos for YouTube. His original music has been recorded by guitarists in many parts of the world. He can be found performing in local concert halls and smaller, more intimate venues.

Trailer- 15 Minutes of . . .

Hey everybody, I’m Dan Thibeault and this is my new monthly podcast series, 15 Minutes Of. I believe the world is a great place, with good people, doing awesome things. I am also very interested in the people I meet. I have crossed paths with so many that are living such interesting lives, and I want to share their stories. These are everyday people, but with uncommon vocations and work lives. People such as makers, artists, educators, land-workers and other creators that love what they do and make an impact on those around them. I hope to learn things about life and my own creativity from these people and I bet you will too. Full disclaimer, some episodes may be a bit longer than 15 minutes. So I’ll let you decide if I have mis-titled the show or if it’s a nod to Andy Warhol infamous quote. Come on along with me and let’s away from the noise, the drama and the bad news. It’s time to be are uplifted instead. This is 15 Minutes Of . . . To learn more about me or suggest someone for me to interview, click here:
