About Travis P.

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 Philharmonic.

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 range, dexterity, repertoire 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.

Travis does a great job! I noticed an improvement after the first lesson my son had with him.

Travis is a wonderful, encouraging & enthusiastic teacher. My son (10) loves going there. He learns a lot and progresses quite quickly - and at the same time it’s always fun.

Travis was great. He paced the lesson right for my daughter and started instilling some fundamentals that she was missing. He is kind and friendly. And a great musician!

Travis is a great teacher, he is patient and has vast knowledge of music theory. He has a warm personality which sets the tone for me to learn. He started with the basics, my posture, breathing and how to hold the trumpet and it's parts. I look forward to each lesson.

Travis did a great job--he quickly picked up on what things I needed to work on and adjusted his lesson plan to me. And he's fun and easy to work with. I'm excited to be getting started on piano lessons!

I'm very glad that I ended up with Travis on this journey. Often anxiety and fear gets in the way of learning and with Travis I don't to worry about that. The process is structured, the materials are carefully selected and tailored to my personal needs. I feel lucky.

Travis is very polite, easy to talk to and my son really enjoyed his first lesson with him. My son is very much looking forward to continuing to learn the trumpet with Travis. I highly recommend him as an instructor.

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.
