Scott's musical training began at the age of four when he began taking drum lessons from a local percussion instructor. At the encouragement of this instructor, he became involved in the drum and bugle corps activity. Before his fifth birthday, Scott joined the Red Knights Drum and Bell Corps and later graduated to the Royalairs Drum and Bugle Corps. Scott remained with the unit until he joined the Blue Devils Drum and Bugle Corps at age 18. He was a marching member in the Blue Devils snare line from 1976 through 1979. He became a member of the Blue Devil staff as a percussion instructor from 1978 through 1989 and later rejoined the organization in 1994 as Director of Percussion and Percussion Arranger. During his time away from the Blue Devils, Scott was hired as Director of Percussion and Percussion Arranger for the Santa Clara Vanguard Drum and Bugle Corps from 1991 through 1993, after one year as percussion consultant in 1990. Scott is also the former percussion arranger for Riverside Community College, Beatrix Drum Corps (Holland), San Francisco Renegades Drum and Bugle Corps, and through the years has arranged for many drum corps and marching bands in the United States as well as Japan.
