About Trevor

Every musician was first and foremost a fan of music. My love of music began when my mother took me to a performance of Beethoven's fifth symphony when, coincidentally, I was five. From that point, I started fervently listening to my mother's records (those are the huge, black monstrosities t

Private Guitar Teacher

Hey there! I'm a multi-instrumentalist with a strong foundation in Guitar, Bass, and Drums.

My lessons are curated behind a few things:
-the understanding of music theory (scales, chord progressions, rhythmic structure, song composition etc.)
-student's requests to learn specific songs and creating original song
-having FUN!

Because in my experience, you're not learning if you're not enjoying what you're doing.

After 6 years, of playing drums, I began my time as a guitar player. I grew as a guitar player tremendously fast because of my understanding and practice of rhythm. I began as an acoustic/folk guitarist, progressed into a blues/funk guitarist, and now play mainly jazz and neo-soul. I also am accustomed to teach many other genres. I now write, produce, and perform my own music and stream online.

When you take lessons with me you can expect that the lessons will increase your music theory knowledge, finger/hand dexterity, rhythm, ear training, performance abilities, and if

We are three lessons in so far with Kevin. He is working with my 15 year old on his electric guitar skills. So far, he has evaluated my son's skills, worked on bar chords, a couple of songs, and they changed the strings on the guitar. My son is enjoying the lessons and is very responsive to Kevin's teaching style. We are early in the lessons, but I am pleased with the overall progress.
Jeff
I’ve had the pleasure of jamming with Kevin a few times at his studio, where he also gave me guitar lessons. I’m normally a piano player, and had no experience with guitar, but he decided to take me in and teach me what he knew. From the first lesson, I immediately knew, “This guy knows what he’s doing!” I highly recommend him as a teacher. He’ll definitely help you grow.
Christopher D.
Kevin is an excellent guitar player! I’ve had a few jam sessions with him at his studio playing the keys as he played guitar and drums. He taught me some chords on the guitar and I picked them up so easily. I thought immediately, “This guys knows what he’s doing!” He plays Guitar, Bass, and Drums, and I definitely recommend learning from him.

I am a Chicago-based guitarist and composer with a style rooted in the jazz tradition but flavored with other styles.I hold a Bachelor of Music degree in instrumental performance from Columbia College in Chicago where I studied jazz guitar and theory with Frank Dawson.

As a trained musician with a degree in music as well as a lot of professional playing experience, I offer a unique perspective to teaching guitar, both as a guitarist and a passionate educator.

I played in a few professional bands and wrote a lot of original music.
I also wrote score/soundtrack for two films.

"A little bit of backstory for reference: When I was younger, around middle school through high school I played guitar. I took lessons and played a lot, mostly within a certain comfort zone that I found and I was objectively speaking mediocre. I get to college and school overwhelmed my playing and later work also overwhelmed it further. About 9 months ago I started to get the itch again after over a decade of not playing and wanted to learn things that I didn't have the temperament for when I was younger.

Enter Eric: Within the past 9 months I have learned more than I did when I played prior for ~8 to 10 years. Eric was quick at learning where I was at and each lesson involved pushing a little bit forward past my comfort zone. This said, each lesson I have gotten a lot to work on. It seemed overwhelming at first, however things have all started to gel in my brain and my fingers to the point where I was able to see and understand why I was given a specific exercise when I was and see how it all fits together. Learning theory and executing it is no easy task so it has taken a lot of work on my end and Eric has always been patient with my progress and moreover I have been extremely happy with my rate of progress.

Lessons are always a good time, they always feel like I am hanging out with a friend rather than a teacher. Eric is great to talk to about music, and his passion for music is evident, all types of music. It is crystal clear that he not only has a profound love for music, but he understands it and hears it in a way that most people don't. Sometimes I wish I could hear music the way he does and be able to wax poetic about the nuances, but taking lessons with Eric has surely made me appreciate music more and listen to everything a little differently. At 30 years old I think I am re-falling in love with music all over again."

Without this dudes dedication of 11 EMPHASIZE 11 years I would NEVER be half the musician I am. Not only has he promoted me to be the best musician I could be, but the best human I could be.
