Overview

Lessons are built around YOUR interests and goals. Whether you are a complete beginner or seasoned musician looking to add new ideas to your playing, I look forward to helping you on your musical journey!

I started playing guitar at 8 years old and by age 14 was gigging throughout St. Louis, MO. I earned a BM in classical guitar from Webster University and along the way have worked in musical theatre, opera and orchestral productions as well as in jazz, rock and pop bands. I currently perform full-time, traveling throughout Texas and the southern US.

Previously, I taught middle and high school music and directed rock bands. In addition, I have several years of experience teaching private lessons through music studios and community outreach programs.

I am here to help you learn the things that interest YOU! In lessons, we will work off mp3s/CDs as well as with backing tracks, chord charts, lead sheets, sheet music, tab and other handouts where necessary.

Above all else, I strive to make the music learning experience fun and enjoyable for you. Please contact me with any questions and to set up your introductory lesson!

Learned a LOT of great stuff in just the past 3 years from Trevor! He started out as my Middle School Guitar Teacher, but wound up being a personal guitar tutor for my brother and myself until this day. Taught me just about everything I know about guitar scales, AND has refined my technique drastically!

Very AWESOME teacher with great technique! Trevor is a very talented instructor and I highly recommend him! I've learned a LOT from him in the last 3 years, and he's taught me most of what I know about music today.
