Learn to play the music that you love!

I graduated with a Bachelor of Music in classical guitar from Webster University St. Louis and have performed in jazz, rock and pop bands as well as in musical theatre, opera, choral and orchestral productions. I've spent several 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. In addition, I've been teaching for 8+ years. 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.

I've taken a couple of lessons from Trevor so far and they have been awesome. I've taken lessons from about 7 or 8 instructors in my lifetime and he is definitely one of, if not the best.
The thing that makes Trevor stand out to me is that he took the time to get to know what I wanted to learn and to figure out how I like to learn. He comes prepared to the lessons with material, answers any questions I have during the week by email and has worked with me to develop a specific education plan to meet my goals.
I suggest taking a trial lesson with this guy to see if you're on the same page. I am definitely not going anywhere else while I live in Austin.

Trevor has been a great teacher! He is extremely knowledgeable and patient. He makes learning fun and is very flexible based on each individual students needs. I would highly recommend him to anyone whether they are a beginner or advanced player. He has the skill set to apply to all students.

Trevor is an awesome teacher and mentor to my boys. He has been teaching them since they had him as a teacher in Middle School, when the first picked up the guitar. I consider him a friend and would highly recommend him as an instructor for any person who wishes to pursue music. He's awesome!!

Really happy to recommend Trevor as a guitar teacher. I started taking lessons with him in December and already feel like I've learned a lot, from flexibility and strength-building exercises for fingers to picking patterns to how to restring the guitar (at my request, since it had been about 20 years). It's also a lot of fun. He does a great job of listening to what you want to learn and suggesting ways to get there.

Jedi Training. That's what I like to call my guitar lessons. Because Trevor teaches you how to use the force. I like how Trevor gets me out of my left brain with exercises like closing my eyes while I pick out chords & notes. He know how to push me past my comfort zone while still keeping it fun.

The topics of lessons aren't one size fits all (like some teachers that teach the same thing every week to all their students) But he tailors each lessons to my interests & deftly weaves all aspects of music together from theory, to chord structure, to picking, to levitating x-wings using your mind.

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!
