Travis Chastain is a Classical Guitarist from the small town of Vail, Colorado. He holds a Bachelor's Degree in Music Performance and a Master of Music in Guitar Performance, both from the University of Denver.

Travis's talent for music was recognized at an early age, in a third grade music appreciation class. At first Travis chose to pursue athletics and martial arts instead of music, and it was not until the age of sixteen that the already-accomplished martial artist (and owner of a Tae-Kwon-Do Dojang) began his pursuit of music. Under the influence of his parents, Travis began taking classical guitar lessons and was instantly hooked by the charming sound of the guitar. He quickly progressed in his studies, winning best musician, after nine months of study, in a small local competition and moved on to study with internationally acclaimed soloist Masakazu Ito in Denver, Colorado.

After four years of study, Travis was accepted into the University of Denver with a scholarship and graduated with accolades not just as a soloist and chamber musician, but also for his efforts in the classroom, where he received top grades in classes such as Guitar Pedagogy and Repertoire, Music History, Music Theory, and Form and Analysis class. His artistry and stage presence were well noted in his auditions at the University of Southern California, University of Denver, and the New England Conservatory of music, where he received the highest of praise from top performers and university professors such as Elliot Fisk, William Kannengeiser, and Ricardo Iznaola, and was awarded scholarships grants in all three prestigious universities.

Travis completed his Master's Degree in 2013 and currently teaches private lessons to students of all ages and abilities. He also continues to play, having performed in weddings and ceremonies throughout Colorado. His objective is to expand his influence in both the performing and teaching communities and share his passion and knowledge of music in the classroom, the studio, and the stage.

Travis hopes to share his passion for music and the guitar to future generations in the collegiate, high school, and grade school levels. His main desire is teaching the guitar to children and adults, and customizing a program that fits each student’s specific needs as a developing musician, passing on the power of music to generations to come.
