Tristan is the consummate teacher. He has a deep understanding of all aspects of the guitar. He not only is a great player himself but he's a wonderful teacher. He has an uncanny ability to take various concepts, some of which are complex, and simplify them with well thought out explanations that often involve apt analogies to non-music things. Some guitar teachers simply teach patterns and forms but never really get into what is behind those things. Tristan makes sure you understand the "why" behind what you are learning which always leads to a better result. Whether you just want to play the guitar as a hobby or want to see how far you can take your playing, Tristan is the perfect instructor to help you meet your personal goals.

In one lesson, Tristan offered a lot of useful information about playing guitar. He also seemed to really enjoy teaching, which makes for a fun lesson. He knew I was struggling with thumb joint pain and came with strategic stretches and healthy playing technique tips to help me avoid doing further damage. He also offered exercises for memorizing notes on the guitar and introduced me to triad chords for easier playing than the barre chords I was used to. He travelled to my house on a Saturday evening, which fit great with my schedule. I highly recommend Tristan as a guitar teacher!

Tristan has unending knowledge of music from his time as a performer and Berklee College of Music but his teaching style for me which characterized technique as meaningless without application worked amazingly -- every new skill was taught through actual music. I often feel like I need to know the "why" behind good music or interesting progressions, and he provided that analysis alongside the where and how musical ideas could be placed. I came in with ~5 years of self taught experience and felt like every lesson was an overwhelming amount of information. Would recommend bringing a device to record with to get full value.

Details: 18 - 25 years old • No formal training; some self-taught experience • Yes, can read guitar tabs • Electric • Jazz • What the teacher recommends • Rock • Blues • Yes, the student has an instrument • 60 minutes • My home, venue, etc. • At the pro’s location

I am so happy that I hired Tristan to perform at my daughter’s graduation party. He is very talented and professional. I was able to work with him on a song list based on my music preferences. I was very impressed with the wide range of music that he can perform. I was able to choose the size of the band and the length of the performance based on my budget. Tristan provided me with plenty of sound-clips of his performances. All of my guests let me know how much they enjoyed the band. The live music made the party fun and memorable.

Details: General event / party • 26 - 50 guests • 18 - 30 years old • 31 - 50 years old • 51 or older • Band • Guitar • Vocals • No preference • Variety • Outdoors
