After attending Interlochen Arts Academy and Yale University, Scott made his Broadway debut in 1986 as the rehearsal pianist for Rags. Other Broadway credits include Into the Woods (assistant conductor), Jerome Robbins' Broadway (music continuity) and Falsetto's (musical director, conductor, pianist).

Scott is best known as the composer of Grey Gardens, which was nominated for ten Tony Awards in 2007 including Best Musical and Best Original Score, winning three.

Many Americans were first introduced to Scott in a famous scene in the 1990 film Postcards from the Edge where he accompanies Shirley Maclaine in her rendition of Stephen Sondheim's "I'm Still Here." He also accompanied Broadway star Donna Murphy in "Hit Me With a Hot Note" in an episode of What About Joan.
