About Trevor S.

I am a diverse and skilled lead and rhythm guitarist. I play Rock, Jazz, Blues, and Balkan music. I started my journey with Eric Clapton and George Harrison in 2004. I graduated with honors from the Contemporary Music Program at Santa Fe University of Art & Design in 2015. During my time at school, I was also exposed to Balkan, Celtic, and Middle Eastern music styles, which broadened my understanding of music and my technique. I am a well-rounded and flexible musician. I played lead guitar in a progressive rock power trio called Get Safe for three years. I am self taught on bass, drums, and the music production platform Ableton Live. I have a deep understanding of conventional Diatonic (seven-note) Western Music Theory. I have a project that fuses jazz guitar and electronic dance music, which I've titled SOZN. I also write and record alternative rock songs on my own. My passion for music's functionality as well as its therapeutic and experimental nature is what has drawn me to a career in music. I look forward to meeting you and passing on what I know to improve your musical skills!

Thanks for the class Trevor! I just got my ukulele today, signed up for a free trial and came across your class! Chat or voice options weren't working for me so I couldn't respond during the class but just want to let you know it was great:)

Highly recommend Trevor as a teacher! I started out taking his group classes, then signed up for private lessons. He's very knowledgable in both guitar theory and technique. And with the few lessons i've taken, I already see an improvement with how I play. He's super patient and supportive, which is very helpful as a beginner.
