known for his music work including 10 years as a corporate music director and teacher for The Second City, doing music direction at theatres across Canada and the U.S., as well as writing music for film, television and stage.

Earlier in his career he spent a great deal of time acting in productions ranging from the Dora nominated TYA show Where In The World Is Porcupine Plain? to work in more commercial productions
including 2 Pianos 4 Hands and multiple productions of Fire. In recent years, his focus has turned to writing.

Scott has written music for seven professionally produced musicals - most notably; Top Gun! The Musical which was a Dora and Canadian Comedy Award nominee for best musical with ensuing productions in Canada and the U.S. and completed its tenth anniversary production at the Lower Ossington Theatre in Toronto during the summer of 2012.

Other musical theatre writing includes the score for The Ugly Duckling which had a three month tour of Ontario in English and French with Little Red Theatre, It's Always You, with book and lyrics by Dan Redican which played a sold out run at the 2013 Toronto Fringe and played additional shows at the Best Of The Fringe Festival, music and lyrics for The Snow Queen (which did three provincial tours), The Elves, A Shoemaker & His Wife (which had a three month Ontario tour in French and English) both for Little Red Theatre, the score for Bosco & Jones (which was named Best Independent Production by Broadway World

Scott has written book and music on three other professionally produced shows The first was The Dance Of The Dead which played Toronto in 2001. The second is Scott's latest family musical The Giant’s Garden (written with Peter Fenton) which premiered at Theatre Orangeville in 2007. A one act version of the piece was performed at the Toronto Fringe Festival in 2011. This piece was named a Critics' Pick, a
Patrons' Pick and was nominated for Best Independent Production by Broadway World Toronto. The script was a semi-finalist in the Ronald M. Ruble New Play Competition at the Caryl Crane Children's Theatre in
Ohio, and was featured at a reading at The Puzzle Arts Festival in New York City.
