  • "I had the pleasure of conducting Scott's music. At such a young age, he not only understands and demonstrates the skill of composing for film, but also orchestrates his compositions with colors and textures that are very cinematic. I believe he will make a significant contribution to film music in the near future."

  • "Scott Reed is a very talented young composer who did a film session here in LA that I played. He wrote some very challenging tuba parts that were fun to play. They were not just bass lines, they were part of the texture, of the chords, they were melodic. Scott has a nice wit and lyricism in his music which is important for someone who wants to score films."
    - Jim Self
  • "In my 30+ years of scoring motion picture after motion picture,  I've run into a few exceptional composers who brought magic to the screen. Jerry Goldsmith, John Williams, Alan Silvestri, Elmer Berstein and a few more. Scott Reed has the ability to accomplish this magic. He is a wonderful person and should be given the opportunities to compose major features in the future. Scott also know clearly how to write for various instruments and conducts an orchestra in a commanding way. He only brings the very best out of me."
