Travis grew up in a musical family in Santa Cruz, CA. His father was a professional guitarist and his grandfather was the head of the music program at Cabrillo College in Aptos, so naturally he grew up with an instrument in his hand. After years of toying with the guitar Travis began formal lesson at the age of 9, quickly developing into an exceptional musician. By the age of 13 Travis was in several rock bands and performing frequently. Once in high school, Travis had no doubt that being a professional musician was what we wanted to do with his life so he started studying jazz and classical piano at a college level, studying with jazz trumpeter/arranger Ray Brown and classically trained pianist Ivan Rosenblum. Travis excelled and quickly began playing in the top Jazz Combo at Cabrillo College and in the top Big Band as well as playing professionally. In 2013 Travis received his BA in Music for Film from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, and currently resides in Santa Cruz scoring commercials, television and film as well as producing albums and working on his own projects.
Ever since Travis was 14 he has had an extreme passion to teach and pass on his musical knowledge. He started out teaching his friends and peers in high school for little or no money where he learned how to teach and gained valuable teaching experience. Eventually, he began teaching as a profession in the Santa Cruz area where he continued to hone the art of teaching.

I completed a BA in Music at Marylhurst University in 2009 after professional experience as a multi-instrumentalist in performance, instruction, and personal study. I taught myself the basics of keyboard, guitar, and hand-percussion as a teenager. The next serious pursuit was hand-percussion in West-African and Afro-Cuban traditions, playing with performance ensembles and dance-troupes. This gave my musical world a firm foundation in the domain of rhythm. My experience with flute began on bamboo instruments mimicking the sounds I heard in nature. I went on to study “silver flute” in both jazz & classical traditions leading to the completion of my music degree at Marylhurst where I had the opportunity to nurture both pursuits, honing in on the repertoires of composers such as JS Bach and Olivier Messiaen, in addition to music theory, composition, and history. Aside from ’Western’ music I also branched off into Classical Indian music, or Raga, and the playing of the Bansuri & the Tambura. While completing my music degree I also delved deeper into acoustic guitar and songwriting, working mostly in the folk-tradition of early Bob Dylan and the like. I went on to complete a Masters degree in Special Education, acquiring numerous skill sets which carry over to my music instruction practice.

I have a doctorate in music composition from UCSC, and have written a lot of music for a wide variety of instrumental and vocal forces. I studied traditional music in Korea for one year on a research grant from the Korea Foundation. I enjoy having a creative musical mind, and find great delight in the musical creativity of my students.
I also am a computer programmer in Python and Matlab, doing back-end for a music app "JamBandit."
Music is a great joy and pleasure in my life. It's very meaningful to me to help students gain skills and confidence so that they can realize their desire to be musical.

In the school of life we are always students. 3 years of Classical Opera and Vocal Jazz Improv training, 23 years of dance training, 10 years of flute training, and 10 years in theater from staring in shows to tech crew heads, I believe together we can uncover where you stand as a triple or even a quadrupal threat in the budding industry. Recently I've obtained my Associate's in Music, Dance and Certification in Digital Technology of Music, which gives me a lead on today's most recent DAW programs, recording gear, and software. As well as the musical experience from lounge singing, to classical vocal performance, channeling live hip hop and spontaneous spiritual synergy with sound I've blend my professional training with artistic intuition in front of dancing audiences of hundreds and thousands of people all around the world. My sense of humor brings a light hearted yet disciplined approach to developing our body as an instrument of emotion, enthusiasm, and energy. Theater games, recorded vocal/instrument exercises, and online resources would give you the opportunity to train on you own time to further what you learn in our sessions, and develop a rehearsal schedule fitting for your life. With multiple auditions, thespian conferences and raw theater and performance experience. Our session would prepare you for the path you wish to continue on with your professional performance career. Thanks for taking the time to tune into my bio, I look forward to harmonizing my gifts with yours. Sincerely, Amanda Rose.

I have played the guitar and bass professionally for almost 50 years; performing, recording and writing with many well-known artists such as, John Lee Hooker, Albert King, Pat Simmons (Doobie Brothers), Larry Carlton, Bill Champlin and others. I started teaching 28 years ago and developed a method of learning how to play that's fun and really works. I have been teaching in the Santa Cruz area for over 20 years now. Music is my life and I love sharing what I've learned with creative people of all ages in this area. I believe we are all musicians. We just have to find our instrument.
