Outstanding instructor of guitar. He goes above and beyond when it comes to teaching students how to play the guitar. He is very flexible, understanding, knowledgeable, and patient when he delivers his classes. Not only does he teach students how to play the guitar, he also does other things like teaching them how to tune their guitars, how to change keys when necessary to make a song sound better, and how to use a capo when playing the guitar. All of these are above and beyond what most teachers have taught me in the past. I really enjoy taking classes from my instructor.

This teacher has great potential.

Level of reliability is lacking somewhat with this teacher.

Scott B.

Denver, CO

About Scott

Hi! I'm Scott, and I'm a native of this great State of Colorado! I fell in love with the drums in 6th grade, and have never looked back! I too, began by taking private lessons, having been fortunate to be able to study under one of the best performers and private teachers in the Rocky Mountain West at the time. Beginning private instruction in Elementary School, I continued for 7 years even while embarking on a performance career in high school. Since then I've both performed and recorded a wide variety of styles including most forms of rock, country, jazz, pop, Gospel, symphonic/orchestral styles, and concert and marching band styles. I've also been fortunate to be able to teach many other students over these last 29 years of my career, and watch them achieve their own goals in drumming.

Scott is an incredibly patient teacher. Our 6 year old has been working with him for quite a few months. Its really difficult to keep the attention of a 6 year old, but Scott has different techniques to keep him interested. He has taught our son to read music in a very short time. He has taught the importance of practice as well as warming up. He has no problem coming to our house to teach, which gives our son the comfort of home. Scott is very patient and extremely flexible and we are enjoying working with him.

Its amazing seeing our little boy reading the music and playing the drums.

We highly recommend Scott in every way!

Scott is one of the best teachers I've come in contact with.

He is great with people! He really goes into the need for knowing basics if you're going to do well at any of the playing styles. It makes it so much easier to play just about anything, instead of having to start from scratch to learn every individual style of music there is, which is really important when you're doing recording like I am. He's also great in encouraging individual creativity in playing, and not just staying "inside the box." That really makes a person stand out from everyone else, which is what needs to happen if you're going to be noticed and be successful.

I am originally from Northeast Kansas, where I started playing guitar and studying music at the age of 9. While studying guitar, I had several influential teachers, including internationally renowned finger-style guitarist, Andy McKee, and University of Montana Professor of Music and Classical Guitar, Dr. Luis Millan. Later, in my teens, I also began playing the Banjo, Mandolin, accordion, and other various instruments.

During this time, I also recorded and regularly performed with my bluegrass/country/cajun band. I have experience playing and teaching numerous genres including rock, pop, country, blues, jazz, ...

We've only had one lesson with Travis so far but he was great. He was very communicative and he spent a lot of focused time with our 8 year old during his lesson. Looking forward to future lessons!

Travis was my son's teacher for about nine months. In that time, my son went from having never touched a guitar to having the confidence to perform a solo at his school's Holiday show. Travis shows patience and inspires an amazing work ethic in his students. My son truly enjoys playing the guitar, thanks to Travis, and he even inspired me to pick up my guitar after not playing for 20 years. I highly recommend him for students of all ages.

Our son really enjoyed taking guitar lessons from Travis. Travis's teaching style was effective and appropriate for the level our son was at and Travis was able to keep him interested and eager to learn more. Socially, our son connected with Travis, which, if there isn't that trust and relationship building happening, the learning won't happen. Thank you Travis for building a strong guitar (and music) foundation for our son! We highly recommend you!

Michael C.

Arvada, CO

About Michael

Hi, I'm Michael Chodosh of Chodosh Guitar and currently of the band Cherry Veil. I have been a professional guitar player my entire life. I love playing, writing, performing and I love teaching music. I love making it fun for us both but I don't stop there. I have systems I use to bring the best out of my students. I think everyone is happier when they reach their own potential while staying in their heart. My job is to help you do that on guitar! With your playing, whether that's just some strumming and reading or if you want to play standards like a pro or even shred like a monster. I can help guide you there and inspire you to reach those goals that you presently might not even realize you can achieve! Thank you for looking into lessons with me. You've either started ...

My kids and I have been taking guitar lessons from Michael for about 10 years. Michael strikes a perfect balance between continuously teaching you new music and guitar concepts, techniques, and theory while making a lesson and the experience truly enjoyable. As a performing musician himself, Michael is also in touch with the music industry and just about any genre, and he is always looking for ways to leverage his experiences to take his students to the next level.

Micheal is the best resource for any professional musician. His grasp of theory and approach to composition are phenomenal. I have never stumped him with a question, and I come up with some doozies, like "How do I approach the flat 2 chord of a G phrygian major and how does it relate to the harmonic minor scale. I think you get the point. Michael keeps me focused and has shown me many ways to keep my playing fresh and fun. Greg Ashby.

Acoustic Guitar · In studio
I recently purchased an acoustic guitar and wanted to take lessons. The store I purchased the guitar from offered a free group lesson. This lesson is where I met Michael. After taking the lesson and watching how he handled a group of adults and children, I knew he was the instructor for me. He should a large amount of patience and a lot of encouragement for everyone. I started taking group/private lessons with him and have learned a lot in a short time. I like how he teaches the basics and has you pick a song you want to learn and includes that in your lesson. His rates are reasonable and I am loving my lessons. I would recommend him to students of any age. His encouragement has shown me that you are never to old to learn to play as long as you play from your heart!
