Scott Tennant is celebrated as a concert artist, author and teacher, and has been concertizing since the age of ten. In high demand as a solo artist, Scott has recorded for Delos International, GHA Recordings, and Guitar Co-Op labels. His playing has been featured in such films as Joe versus the Volcano, and Strangely in Love. The author of many books and articles on guitar playing, his best-selling book and video series Pumping Nylon - a technical handbook for the classical guitarist - has reached cult status. He is an Associate Professor at the USC Thornton School of Music, and Master Teacher at the Pasadena Conservatory of Music. When Scott isn’t playing, teaching or listening to music (mainly renaissance, baroque, Celtic and reggae), he is firmly committed to brewing the perfect cup of espresso, is fascinated by strange bicycles, and maintains a unique Asian sword collection.
