About Me

Hello! My name I'm Travis. I am mainly a Guitar teacher but I also teach beginner piano and bass as well. My style of guitar is a mix of Classical and Jazz although I picked up Rock and Acoustic from my most recent teaching job.  When I think of influences I think of Wes Montgomery, Freddie Green, and Muddy Waters but I try to have the mindset of self inspiration. My form of teaching is based around technique. I put a huge emphasis on quality, tone, fingernail shaping, chord shaping and progression all the while stressing how important repetition and consistency are. Students will say I have a very laid back and easy going personality. One thing I love about teaching the most is when the student finally gets what is being taught to them and they're just as excited as I am!

Travis A- has over 8 years of music experience in the Dumfries area.

Formal Education:

My first 3 years of guitar were in a bit classroom setting up to 20 people so I had to more or less self teach myself the fundamentals of music theory. By the time I was in college I was able to play well enough to perform for a few open mic nights. 

Private Education:

I was privately taught throughout college by a professor and was introduced to the world of Classical Music. My sophmore year I self taught myself Jazz chords and became apart of a Big Band as well as a Jazz Combo. 

Performing Experience:

I've been performing for friends, family, faculty, teachers, and general audience for over 5 years. 

Experience Teaching:

I've been teaching for 4 years with students ranging from 5 to 25 years old. I also have experience teaching special needs students as well as student with disabilities
