Raving reviews from students and pros
GENE SIMMONS - Kiss
"Van Zen is an accomplished guitarist and musician. One would do well to sit at his feet, and learn."
STEVE PORCARO - Toto
"Scott Van Zen is that rare musician who plays a song the first time, like he’s been playing it all his life. Every part he plays is exactly what’s needed. Whether it’s a blazing lead, a deep-pocketed rhythm part or something you would have never thought of in a thousand years. I can’t wait until the next time we work together again."
FRANK HANNON - Tesla
"Van Zen has incredible feel in his playing."
JOHN TAYLOR - Atlantic Recording Artist
"Scott is not only one of the greatest guitarists I have ever known, but the single most influential guitar teacher I ever had. Scott showed me how to approach the guitar with a whole different mindset, encouraging me to embrace critical technical fundamentals while bringing out my own personal style. The music my band made and our success on Atlantic Records are a direct reflection of Scott's influence."
PETE MENDILLO - Brian Howe drummer
"When Scott Van Zen fires up up a groove, there is no stopping him. And his choice of notes in the blistering melodic solos he plays makes him a cut above the rest. In my book....He's Brilliant."
"Scott is one of the most technically versatile players today. A feel player with the right note selection every time."
BART WALSH - David Lee Roth Band
"Scott Van Zen is quite possibly the best blues/rock guitarist I have ever had the pleasure of seeing and working with. This guy has it all. Chops,tone,feel and attitude that grabs you and demands you listen. Not to mention his great production skills. Come on and getcha’ some!"
KEN TAMPLIN – Ken Tamplin Voice Academy
"As an accomplished guitar player myself, and having worked with hundreds of some of the world’s greatest guitarists, Scott Van Zen is one of my (if not my favorite) guitarist. I can’t say enough good things about his playing, his feel, his soul, his choice of notes and just all around tasty playing!"
ERIK TURNER - Warrant Guitarist
"I have had the pleasure of working with Scott the last couple years on music for my company. He is amazingly talented as a guitar player, composer and producer… and those are just three of the many reasons you should have him as your guitar teacher and mentor."
"Scott is a guitar man of the highest order a dedicated practitioner who seeks more than the flash, but the spirit and essence of what it means to be a guitar player and oh what a nice fellow as well."
KENT BLAZY - Multi platinum song writer
"Scott Van Zen is one of the most inventive,unique and imaginative guitar players on the planet. His sound palette is an ever increasing vocabulary of sonic expansions based on his heros from the past while adding his own heart, soul & spirit that break the boundaries of what guitar playing is into what it can be."
J.B. ECKL - Guitarist / Santana
"Scott is amazing. When I get stuck or run out of ideas, I watch one of his videos a couple of times and get back on track. I can only imagine where my playing would be if I’d had access to his knowledge over the years. What a badass!"
