Scotty Horey (B.A., M.M.A., D.M.A.) is a passionate and versatile percussionist, drummer, and teacher based in the twin cities. He performs locally, nationally and internationally as a solo percussion artist, a percussionist/drummer for hire, and is a drums/percussion teacher of all levels: children, teen, college level, and adult. He is currently Assistant Professor/Lecturer of Percussion at the University of Minnesota-Morris, Principal Percussionist of the Mankato Symphony Orchestra, and frequently stands apart from other artists of his generation by being equally active with concert percussion and contemporary drumset. His strongest passions in music and teaching include classical music, contemporary-classical music, progressive rock/fusion, solo marimba, mind/body “holistic” awareness, and cross cultural understanding. His passionate performing and teaching work has brought him through the USA, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Costa Rica, Portugal, Poland, Denmark, and Greece. In 2017, Dr. Horey earned a finalist position in the prestigious McKnight Fellowship for Performing Musicians. Dr. Horey was called “the Twin Cities’ hungriest young percussionist” by New Music Box, and “a performer of intelligence, raw artistry, and the utmost concentration and energy” by international icon composer James Dillon. His teachers have included some of the best and most accomplished in the world: Fernando Meza, Stuart Marrs, Katarzyna Mycka, and James Dillon. Dr. Horey is an endorsed artist for MAPEX drums, VIC FIRTH sticks, SABIAN cymbals, and MAJESTIC percussion.
