Michael B.
I've been working with Trevor for just over a year. His teaching goes beyond just dry technique and theory to answer the question "why am I doing this?" When you work with Trevor, there is purpose behind everything you do. He starts with your big picture goals and breaks them down into actionable steps that you can take feeling like it's going somewhere. This makes for way more efficient and exciting practice sessions. If you don't know exactly where you want to go with your playing, Trevor will help you find that as well.
Nathan S.
Trevor is an amazing teacher! He works with you to make a plan to learn whatever interests you. I can bring in any kind of music or style of playing and he will help me learn all of the elements. He is happy to go as far into theory as you want or stay more high level. Also has been very helpful in transitioning from learning tunes to writing and recording my own songs. Highly recommend.

My Ableton students should expect to work on developing their technical skills in the software to the point where the software does not get in the way of their expression. This is akin to developing your technique on an acoustic instrument. We will work on creating as many finished tracks as possible to make those skills happen quickly. All of this will include furthering the student's knowledge of music theory and compositional form, whether the student is a skilled acoustic musician just starting with Ableton, or a skilled Ableton user looking to develop their compositional technique.

All of my students will work on these foundations. From there, I work with my students to create a tangible system to organize their practice and goals so that we can work on more specific areas relevant to what they want out of their musical life. This system is extremely flexible and effective. I also encourage and assist my students to use this system in other areas of their lives, such as ...

"Fawn is living proof that all vocal coaches are not the same! I have had 4 other vocal coaches, and none of them gave me what I needed, or provided the kind of growth that Fawn has. I saw immediate results in the first lesson! Now, a year later I can say I am a completely different singer. I'm no longer just 'a singer', am now, truly a professional vocalist with a career that is thriving and growing into the direction of my biggest dreams. I look forward to my continued growth and improvement with her as my guide. In my opinion, Fawn's expertise and teaching are cutting edge and the best there is available today."

Should Drummers Learn Music Theory?

If you're a drummer, does that mean you're off the hook if you don't want to learn music theory? Maybe you just want to rock out and learn some killer fills and wow the crowd with your solos. No need for modes, minor scales or the Circle of Fifths... right? Think again. Learning music theory can be incredibly helpful to any musician, and excluding yourself from those Music Theory 101 classes is only holding you back. Sure, you may not need to memorize the pentatonic scales in order to master …
