Overview

Learn to play the music that you love!

My goal as a teacher is to create lessons that are fun, challenging and directly related to your goals.

I graduated with a Bachelor of Music in classical guitar from Webster University St. Louis and have played in jazz, rock and pop bands as well as in musical theatre, opera, choir and orchestra. I've spent the last 4 years traveling and performing in a top 40 show band, and I pride myself on teaching my students using real life experience and battle tested methods. I've been teaching for 7+ years and during that time I've taught privately, through music studios and in the public school system as a high school music teacher and rock band director.

Trevor is an amazing guitarists. It's clear in short order that he's very knowledgeable and his patient and straightforward style of instruction inspires me with confidence as a beginning player! I think he'd do well with both beginners and advanced players, as well as students of all ages. I give him my highest recommendation as a tutor, coach and instructor.

I took lessons from Trevor Perrmann for about 3 years, and I have learned a lot. In that time, I had lessons from Trevor in Classical Guitar, Piano, Electric Guitar (everything from pop to jazz), and I also learned a lot about music theory. I've taken music lessons from 5 different teachers, and my lessons with Trevor were some of the most productive and fun in my life.

Trevor has a very patient, kind and gentle approach. Having no experience with the guitar. He is very knowledgeable and I was playing chords, and even transitioning between them in no time at all. I'd give him my highest recommendation as instructor for all levels of experience and all age groups. Best instructor ever.

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!
