Geordie Riffs Creator

Dominic Scott

My guitar playing journey started nearly 20 years ago leading me to play in bands which toured the UK supporting major artists such as Catfish and the Bottlemen, Reverend and The Makers, Doves, The Futureheads, Shed Seven, Hot Club De Paris and many more, playing at legendary venues such as The Cavern Club.

As part of a previous venture I was a music promoter putting on gigs round the UK for up and coming bands trying to break through, as well as helping young children in the local community get into music.

I began giving private lessons around 10 years ago to friends and family who’d constantly ask “Why don’t you do this all the time?” I was already recognized by the Registry of Guitar Tutors of the London College of Music as an outstanding guitarist and was awarded membership solely based on my playing and teaching ability, nope I didn’t sit exams either!

After years of being told to set up a music school, I did. I didn’t want to be just a regular guitar school though, I wanted it to be special, no exams, no set curriculum, a bespoke school tailored to you. I wanted people to learn what they love. That’s how Geordie Riffs came about and we’ve grew into what you see now working with some of the biggest names in music.

Although I don’t gig regularly any more, I am now requested as a session guitarist, collaborate with other artists supplying guitar tracks for their recordings,  a guitarist for the Rockin’ 1000 and a product tester for some of the biggest manufacturers in
