Background:

Travis had an interest, and talent in music from the age of four. His parents recognized his talent. So, they got him private lessons right away! Travis has had multiple teachers throughout his life. However, one of his favorites was his middle school jazz band teacher. This teacher had a previous career “gigging”, or playing live music for a living.

Favorite Aspect of Teaching:

I had a lot of music teachers as a child and an adult. And I know that I wouldn’t be where I am without each and every one of them. Teachers serve as a role model. So, when it comes to music, it’s that role model’s responsibility to keep a students’ love and dedication to music growing! I love sharing what I know through guitar lessons in Lutz. Additionally,I enjoy using it to keep students motivated.
