Overview

Hi,

My name is Travis, and I have been playing trumpet for 17 years. I have been teaching for 8. I love working with new students, and became more focused on private lessons during my Sophomore year in college. Speaking of which, I earned a Bachelors of Music in Trumpet performance from the University of Maryland College Park.

While there, I played with the Wind Orchestra, Symphonic Orchestra and Jazz Band. I am also a regular performer with the Prince Georges Phil Harmonic.

As each student is different, so is my technique and teaching method. Generally, I have students work through the fundamentals of the instrument including fingerings, embouchure, breathing, and scales. Once mastered, the more difficult obstacles such as repertoire, range, dexterity and endurance are approached. I do not work with a set schedule for students, and tailor the lesson plan for the student's growth and practice.

A wonderful instructor for my 6 year old daughter. I appreciate how he mixes theory and truly teaching her what she is playing and why she is playing it a certain way, with fun and enjoying playing the piano. I can see that she is getting a lot out of the lessons. I would highly recommend Travis for these types of lessons.
