About Me

My first musical memories are jamming with his father Robert (who plays guitar) in a make-shift garage music room in his hometown of San Diego. I soon discovered a love of and fascination with drumming that led me to pursue music as a lifelong passion.

In 2001 I received a B.A. in music from San Diego State University, where I studied classical theory, sang in choirs, took every jazz course available, and played in West African/South Indian drumming ensembles.

About Me

Cameron is a drum instructor currently located in the bay area. He is a professional touring and recording drummer who has traveled nationwide and internationally playing sold out venues all over the states, the UK, Europe, and Australia. Cameron has also worked in Los Angeles with A-list producers famous for producing artists like: Katy Perry, 30h3, Selena Gomez, Kelly Clarkson, Boys Like Girls, Panic At The Disco, Alanis Morrissette, Queens of the stone age, Tool... and many more.... Cameron has albums available for purchase in stores nationwide and all over the world through WEA distribution on Roadrunner Records. Before his career in music began, he attended Musicians Institute in Hollywood, California, where he studied with some of the best teachers in the drumming community. It was during this time at MI that he learned all styles of drumming and how to utilize the proper hand/foot technique to play the drums.

Here are some of Cameron's previous teachers and mentors:

Rob Carson- 5 time world champion rudimental drummer and world class instructor on technique

Andy Megna- student of legendary drummer Dave Weckl

Glen Sobel- drummer in Alice Cooper

Ray Luzier- drummer in Korn

and many other great teachers too.

Cameron is endorsed by Gretsch Drums, Paiste Cymbals, Gibraltar Hardware, and Evans Heads.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students can expect to learn proper hand/foot technique and all of the skills necessary to facilitate independence on the drum-set. Students will be given the tools to expand their vocabulary on the drum-set so that they can begin their own improvisation exercises, which will eventually lead to developing their own unique musical style. The first part of a lesson is spent working on hand technique on a practice pad before moving to the drum-set. From there, students will learn grooves, fills, drum solos, and various exercises to help them become better. Students are also welcome to ask about drum parts to their favorite songs if they want to learn them. The lesson is really tailored to each individual student! Learning how to count is an essential part of learning to play the drums and after a short time students will be able to count as they play and understand what notes they are playing in any given subdivision. Most of all, the lessons are always fun. Learning music should be a joyful and exciting time and something to look forward to!

*** Studio Equipment ***
2 full drum-sets, practice pad set-up, recording equipment, electronic drum- set

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to have a practice pad, drum sticks, and a drum set.

*** Specialties ***
I teach proper technique and am able to teach all styles and genres.

I specialize in Rock Drumming.
