Further back...

Trevor was born and raised in Mt. Shasta, CA where he fell in love with music at a young age. He began playing Alto Saxophone at the age of 10 and two years later was playing in his elementary school Jazz Band. He continued playing saxophone until the age of 14 and then decided to fulfill his original desire to play the drums. After seeing an untouched drum set in his household, originally for his little sister, Trevor moved from playing saxaphone in jazz band to playing drums in garage bands.

During High School, he played with a rock band called Stowaway, which had great local success and soon prompted the high school band teacher to ask him to play with the Jazz Band and Jazz Choir. During his senior year of high school he was hunted down by world famous Hal Leonard arranger/composer Roger Emerson, and was asked by Emerson to join the College of the Siskiyous Vocal Jazz Ensemble and Big Band Jazz Ensemble.
