Outstanding instructor of guitar. He goes above and beyond when it comes to teaching students how to play the guitar. He is very flexible, understanding, knowledgeable, and patient when he delivers his classes. Not only does he teach students how to play the guitar, he also does other things like teaching them how to tune their guitars, how to change keys when necessary to make a song sound better, and how to use a capo when playing the guitar. All of these are above and beyond what most teachers have taught me in the past. I really enjoy taking classes from my instructor.

Thomas G. Wheat Ridge, CO

About Thomas

I've performed and taught in a wide variety of settings. My early professional experiences have included 3 years in the Army Band, several cruise line contracts, and freelance work as a performer and composer. Through these times, I've learned to excel in many styles. I recently graduated from NYU, where I was an adjunct faculty member. Here, I also performed and worked with a wonderful faculty including Kenny Werner, Brian Lynch, Chris Potter, Ralph Alessi, Tony Moreno, and trumpet guru Laurie Frink, who all inspire me as a musician and a teacher. While in New York, I was a faculty member at Douglaston School of Music and Art, where I worked with younger students . It is my belief that discipline and technique are necessary elements that allow emotion and creativity to thrive. I ...

Trumpet · In studio
I've had many teachers in the past who only taught me how to perform well with the emphasis on technicality and repeptition; however, Tom created space for me to appreciate each and every bar rather than focusing on finishing a song. As a student who has become well-adjusted to structure, I learned the beauty of improvisation informed by theory through Tom. He is attentive, passionate, and always makes sure I got the concept he's teaching. He has a rare gift of creating such an intimate, peaceful environment where I can feel at ease and really thrive in playing music. It was in these calm moments my passion for jazz sparked more and more. I'm truly thankful to have had Tom as my mentor/teacher.

Johanna is awesome!!

I gave her a general idea of what I wanted and so far her instruction has helped greatly. After only two lessons I am more comfortable singing, and I am starting to expand my range.She also likes to have fun during her lessons. She is always pleasant and upbeat, and her criticism is always fair and positive. She honestly wants you to succeed in your goals and it comes through in her teaching.

My 12 year old sons have had 4 lessons with Greg so far and are having a blast! They're improving daily and are excited to practice because they work on songs that they know and love. Greg does a great job of connecting with the kids, is very patient, and is clearly passionate about music and teaching. We're excited to continue working with him this year.

Mary F. Denver, CO

About Mary

I've been playing piano since I was 6 yrs. old, and guitar and organ since I was 13. I've been able to use music in so many ways, and that is the opportunity I want for my students. From singing in school and church choirs, to accompanying and directing them, I've had a lot of enjoyable experiences. I've had the fun of performing solo and with bands, and have been teaching music for about 25 yrs, both privately and in the schools. My BA is in music education and my Masters is in individual performance. I've taught K-Jr College music classes in general music, chorus, piano, guitar, and theory. I think my favorite form of teaching is still one-on-one lessons. Working with one student allows me to adjust my teaching to their particular learning style and needs. *** Lesson Details *** I'm

Extremely patient

I've loved banjo music for years but never had the courage to learn how to play until recently. I'm a senior citizen with absolutely no musical background. What I like best about Mary is that she's totally patient and encouraging but at the same time pushes me out of my comfort zone so that I learn something new with each lesson. When I struggle with how to do something, she suggests different ways to attack the problem or ways to work around it. In just a few months she's helped me be able to play a song for someone that they can actually recognize, which was the first goal I had set for myself. I look forward to many more goals. I'm so glad to have Mary as my teacher!

Practice more

Mary is an excellent teacher. Having been a teacher for 20 years, I tend to closely observe other teachers. Mary had much more to teach me than I was willing to learn. Playing the guitar is a psycho motor skill and as such it must be practiced diligently to gain the muscle memory necessary to perform the tasks. I didn't do it but Mary kept encouraging me and the more she did, the more I practiced, although I still fall woefully short of 30 minutes every day. Her lessons in music theory, however, are paying dividends since I also play some other instruments.
She is kind, patient, skilled and knows music inside out. I don't think I could have chosen a better teacher. I will start again as soon as I am able. Thanks Mary, job well done!

Travis was my son's teacher for about nine months. In that time, my son went from having never touched a guitar to having the confidence to perform a solo at his school's Holiday show. Travis shows patience and inspires an amazing work ethic in his students. My son truly enjoys playing the guitar, thanks to Travis, and he even inspired me to pick up my guitar after not playing for 20 years. I highly recommend him for students of all ages.

Our son really enjoyed taking guitar lessons from Travis. Travis's teaching style was effective and appropriate for the level our son was at and Travis was able to keep him interested and eager to learn more. Socially, our son connected with Travis, which, if there isn't that trust and relationship building happening, the learning won't happen. Thank you Travis for building a strong guitar (and music) foundation for our son! We highly recommend you!

My son, 11 years old, was a complete beginner at guitar and reading music. Travis emphasized learning music, which is great, because even if a child decides to switch instruments, he will have that knowledge to help him along. Travis has a great way of relating to young musicians, exhibiting patience and high expectations, which helps motivate his students to practice. My son really enjoyed his lessons. He made fairly quick progress and has developed a confidence that will keep him playing and growing musically. Thanks to Travis for starting him off on the right foot. We highly recommend Travis as a music teacher.
