Saxophone
talented musician and inspiring teacher

Trevor has been my sax teacher for more than two years. He is both fun and inspiring. I am definitely a better musician because of my lessons with him.

Trevor makes me work hard but understands when I need the lesson to slow down. My favorite part of each lesson is when we get to play the music together.
