- Teaches students:
- Ages 1+ and special needs
- Teaching since:
Hello! I am offering my services as a music teacher. I have been playing guitar and piano since I was 10 years old (and I'm 26 now!). I was classically trained for over 10 years, until finally decided to cease private lessons and begin my music production and composing career.
I currently have multiple original compositions online with anywhere between 20,000 plays to over 1 million on youtube and other music hosting websites. My expertise lies in virtual instrumentation.
I can offer traditional music lessons in Piano and Guitar or, a more unique approach that would involve recording, production, mastering techniques, virtual and digital audio and more.
I work well with children and youth. I work for the State of Ohio as a counselor for youth with disabilities. I have a masters degree in professional counseling.
If you have any questions about what I can offer, don't hesitate to contact me!!
Thanks for reading!
I've been teaching guitar since 2004, either in a one on one private setting, or as an assistant teacher in group lessons.
Great instructor...very friendly and informative to even the basic of beginners!! My son is so excited and eager to go further and it's been a long time since I've seen him excited about something other than video games ;-) Our prayers were answered and we look forward to many more sessions with Travis!! :-)+ Read More
Travis is patient and encouraging. He makes the guitar learning experience a positive one for the student no matter what the age of that student.( I am 65)
Travis is very talented and also very patient! My daughter loves him because he's kind and he doesn't get angry when she doesn't get it. He laughs with her and they just keep trying. He's the best teacher we've ever had (we've tried three). We'll be sticking with Travis!+ Read More
Wow, where to begin...I've been taking lessons from Travis for a few years now, and I can't describe how much I appreciate this man. He is an exorbitantly talented musician, composer and producer. His compositions are breath taking. I always tell him that I'm shocked he isn't in Hollywood scoring blockbuster films. His teaching style is fantastic. He always adapts and manipulates his teaching to the student. He never just follows a book - he uses books, internet resources, his own knowledge and a piece of paper and ANYTHING else he thinks will benefit the student. If you are taking lessons on guitar - he helps explain music theory on the piano. If you take lessons on piano, he helps explain things on the guitar. His vast knowledge is just perfect for teaching music lessons. I can't recommend him enough!+ Read More
Incredible. My kids love him! They are so excited to go to lessons and see him every week. He is so good with kids! In fact, he might be a better teacher than he is a musician! (Okay, at least just AS good!). I love hearing what my kids have learned after having a class with him. Highly recommend!+ Read More
Travis is an awesome teacher! I started off taking guitar lessons from him, but then he showed me his piano and electronic production and started taking lessons on those as well.
He has his masters degree so teaching and educating people is nothing new to him. He explains things perfectly and uses so many great examples. He's laid back but also expects hard work from his students. He always understands when life gets in the way and we haven't had time to practice. Overall I can't recommend him enough. Truly a good guy and phenomenal musician
