Biography:
Over the past 20 years, Scott LeGere has played key roles in the ownership and operation of audio recording facilities, independent record labels, media schools, and commercial music production companies. During this time, he has engineered Grammy nominated albums, produced critically acclaimed independent projects, lectured nationally at conferences and events, and foolishly hauled both Yamaha CP-70s and Hammond B3s (concurrently) to gigs. 

In 2010, he co-founded NoWare Media, a composition focused sound agency, and has helped produce Clio, Emmy, and Cannes Lion award winning commercial spots for clients such as Target, Walmart, The Minnesota Wild, PepsiCo, Bauer Hockey, BluDot, and others. 

More recently, Scott has concentrated much of his efforts into higher education, teaching at a variety of Minnesota colleges and universities. Now an Assistant Professor of Music Industry at Minnesota State Mankato, Scott tries desperately to translate the above “career” into a model for aspiring musicians and industry professionals. Always an optimist, he believes there are indeed growing career opportunities for young people interested in the arts. However, he cautions that the skills of the future might involve helping write jingle lyrics that rhyme with “broccoli” for a grocery chain.
