Adam Scott

I've always had an interest in music. In high school the very first composition I wrote won a cash award. I was hooked. I started writing more instrumental music, but gradually branched out to writing choral music, music for different ensembles, and eventually full blown symphonic scores. I've now written over a hundred original compositions including two symphonies, choral selections including a spiritual, and everything from opera to barbershop, and even a rag for piano. In college I began as a choral music education major, but eventually found myself studying composition with Dr. F. Dean Madsen. I graduated cum laude from USU with a bachelor's degree in music composition. Professionally I began teaching in the Washington County School District until 2010 when I was hired by the Barbershop Harmony Society to be a Society Educator and the Music Editor. In this capacity I travel around the continental US, mostly, teaching the wonderful craft of barbershop. In the office I edit the sheet music for clarity and uniformity with one of the big jobs being the Premiere Series. It's a wonderful place to work and I love my job and those I work with. So although I never, ever thought I'd say it, I live in Nashville Tennessee, Music City. My wife and two wonderful sons complete my family here.
