Reviews from students:

“Travis is steady, patient and very knowledgeable. Most musicians can either play or teach-Travis does both effectively. He’s the real deal and I highly recommend him.”

- Mike B

“Travis is a wonderful instructor — my son (Brett) takes guitar (electric) lessons from Travis and he loves it. He is 13 and looks forward to lessons to learn new and exciting things. He’s been going to Sound Mindset for about 8 months and looks forward to every week and interacting with Travis. Sound Mindset is also flexible in working around our busy schedule(s) and willing to make-up lessons.”

“I’ve been taking guitar lessons from Travis on and off for the last 3 years. He has been teaching both my 14 year old son and myself together for about 6 months. His knowledge of and ability to explain music theory has helped us to achieve our mutual goal of creating our own songs. He also provides suggestions and feedback about techniques, that has enabled us to feel confident about the value of continuing with lessons. We have also learned ways to jam together, which makes practice more fun.”

- Nan

”Travis has a positive, encouraging approach to teaching the guitar, which makes lessons a lot of fun. He teaches in a clear, easy to understand manner, so even a beginner would be able to follow it. I have really enjoyed the lessons…it opened up a whole new world of playing for me!! I would recommend him to anyone.”

- Michelle Zehr

“I am a singer/songwriter that was in search of a guitarist to play my original songs, as well as some cover tunes for a handful of gigs. I was lucky enough to stumble upon Travis from Sound Mindset! Travis is a very talented guitarist. His skills are something that I admire, and I even learned some guitar tricks along the way Travis is a very dependable, flexible and has a positive outlook when it comes to music. I am very grateful that I found him and look forward to working with him in the future as well! “
