Mr. Scott has been Elsa’s Drum Teacher since May 2023, and has shared his thoughts on teaching Elsa:

“Elsa is student of the month because of her commitment to taking up drums and improving every week. Elsa works hard in and out of class and has soared to level 3 of drums in a very short time. She impressively shows how far a little bit of daily practice can take you!”
