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.

Cameron C. Littleton, CO

About Cameron

I have played rock and blues guitar for 30 years. I grew up with the Beatles and Rolling Stones, but now play in the Albert King, Buddy Guy and Eric Clapton blues styles. I know most rock, blues, folk and jazz styles with some knowledge of country and classical. I have been the rhythm, lead or bass guitar player in six bands spanning 30 years. My current band is West of the Blues. I was mentored by Mike Bruce. Mike was BB King’s, Bobby Blue Bland’s and Bob Seger’s lead guitar player for many years. He has played with everyone from Eric Clapton to Janet Jackson. During the Mike Bruce period my band opened for him almost everywhere. He became my mentor and guitar teacher and only then did I start learning how to play the instrument that initially looked easy. I have taught

We couldn't be happier!

My daughter has been taking guitar lessons with Cameron for several months now. She really loves it, and has learned a great deal. She is learning both guitar and bass guitar, and Cameron leaves it up to her which one she wishes to focus on that week. He is flexible, patient, kind, with a comfortable laid-back approach. My daughter leaves her lessons inspired. Cameron has a comfortable well lit studio in his home. He is an experienced teacher and performer, and has good advice and tricks to make learning easier. She is using a personalized workbook for lessons, and there is an emphasis on improv and learning by listening. We couldn't be happier!

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.

TJ is a great teacher. I have learned allot in a short amount of time.
He caters the lesson to what I wish to learn while still making sure I learn to actually play not just learn the song. I have enjoyed learning from him and am still a student.
He does like coldplay but I will try not to hold that against him lol.

Great teaching approach

My goal was to be able to play songs around a campfire and TJ has been fantastic at tailoring our lessons to this goal. Every week I learn something a little new, but I also learn a song that is simple enough for me to play and which incorporates whatever new chord or technique he's introduced. I much prefer practicing actual songs vs. excercises and he always leaves me with a new song to play. He is also instantly likeable and lessons feel more like hanging out with a friend than a teacher. I would highly recommend him as a guitar teacher.
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!
