‘I wanted to write and say THANK YOU so much for having Travis come to my school to work with my students. I know they really got a lot out of the lesson. Travis really helped them develop a much deeper depth of emotion in the piece my kids were working on. I really saw great engagement from my students, and a lot of faces light up in ways I’ve never seen before in a teaching situation. Thank you again so much for all you do.’ Garrett Holslag, Guitar Instructor at Ortiz Middle School, Santa Fe, NM
