Owner / Instructor

All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree. -Albert Einstein

Taylor began playing guitar at age 10 with help from a family barber and by 16 he was premiering in local Dallas garage bands. Throughout high school, he continued to hone his skills as a singer, songwriter, and guitar player by forming and touring with the rock band, “Fallen From the Nest”. It was then that Taylor began developing his craft as an engineer and producer by apprenticing under the renowned Hollywood producer Harvey Guerst (Bob Dylan, The Byrds, The Doors, Kenny Rogers, Peter, Paul, and Mary, Frank Zappa, Jimi Hendrix, The Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin).

Through his college years at North Texas University, he worked as an engineer at Indian Trails Recording Studio in Denton, TX and Steven Arnold Studios in Allen, TX. It was during this time that he began to tour internationally with the rock band “Fallen From the Nest” (Sony) where he co-wrote and released 3 albums. In 2003, between tours, Taylor began giving lessons with the hands-on, working knowledge, approach he had acquired from his time on the road. His students appreciated this “From the Heart” teaching perspective and, as his student base grew, Taylor began to take on other pro musician instructors.

Today, the TR Music Company networks with over 14,000 contract instructors and has served over 100,000 lessons in all 50 states. In August 2012, Taylor graduated from Texas A&M Commerce with a Masters in Business Administration. Still, TR Music continues to be a leader in its industry by offering quality, unique, and diverse music instruction guided by a true concern for every student.

"Do external things distract you? Then make time for yourself to learn something worthwhile; stop letting yourself be pulled in all directions. But make sure you guard against the other kind of confusion. People who labor all their lives but have no purpose to direct every thought and impulse toward are wasting their time—even when hard at work."

- Marcus Aurelius
