About Travis Jensen
Music Teacher, Professional
Location: Westminster, CO
Instructs: Guitar, N/A, Piano
Education: Bachelor's Degree in Music (Metropolitan State University)
Performance Experience: I have performed with a mariachi ensemble all over the Denver area, as well as on multiple occasions for local news stations. A mariachi performs for private events at a customer's home, for restaurants, bars and hotels, as well as for bigger venues, such as Paramount Theater, where our group opened for Mariachi Sol de Mi Tierra and Mariachi Sol de Mexico. I have also performed other styles for other venues. I have some limited experience performing jazz as well.
Teaching Experience: I have two years of teaching experience, mostly on piano and guitar, but I can teach ukulele as well! I can teach in-store or online. I have learned a lot in that two years, but the biggest lesson I have gotten from my teaching experience is that the lessons need to be tailored to each individual student's needs and interests, and I try to take that with me to every lesson.
Teaching Philosphy: I try my best to have an even mixture of learning both theory and learning the type of songs that the student would be interested in learning. Regardless of the student's preferred genre, learning and memorizing your instrument is of paramount importance on both piano and guitar, and I place a strong emphasis on that. In my lessons, there will be a lot of learning chord and scale theory so that my students can get a stronger understanding and appreciation of the music that they love.
Get to know Travis Jensen
Hi, I'm Travis! I'm a private guitar and piano instructor with Music and Arts. I have always loved listening to music, and from the moment I picked up a guitar, I knew for a certainty that I wanted to pursue a career in music. From my private lessons when I was a teenager, to getting my degree, my fascination with music has never ceased or slowed down. I want to share that passion for creating music with my students and help them take their first steps in their musical journey!
