We did online tonight per my request. Michael is so patient and encouraging and he answers my questions that are endless. I feel hopeful that I am learning the correct form and things I definitely would not pick up just trying to teach myself through the book. Thank you Michael!

With the highest range of the orchestral string family, the violin is capable of singing with the voice of an angel. Solid technique in combination with musical expression is what makes that possible, so these will be primary areas of focus during our lessons.

We will cover form (because that is the foundation of technique - without proper form, mastering the instrument is virtually impossible), intonation (which is as much about training the ears as it is the fingers), tone (I'm probably biased, but I think strings have the most beautiful and expressive sound of all of the instruments of the orchestra), theory (the grammar/vocabulary/sentence structure and written language of music), literature and history (the music itself, who wrote it, when it was written and in what context). It's a misnomer to lump almost 1000 years of the music of Western Civilization under the label "classical" (which technically represents less than 100 years of music history).

If you're playing in an ...

Cameron is an excellent teacher . He has vast musical experience and is so kind, friendly and patient with my son - Aarav .He has gone extra mile out of his way to learn about my son's learning pace and guided him
professionally to pick up the violin basics easily. Aarav was not only able to learn from him, but really enjoyed him as a teacher, as well.
Cameron is highly skilled at teaching. I would highly recommend him .
Luis
Cameron has been my voice teacher for close to four years.

I started taking voice lessons for the first time at a community college in Arizona. After moving to Florida, I met Cameron and resumed studying voice. It has been my pleasure to work with him and feel fortunate to have him as my teacher. He has helped me tremendously.

In the past, I was a baritone, but Cameron has worked with me to extend my range, so now I am more of a bari/tenor. He has helped me learn better breathing technique, so now I can hold my notes twice as long and my tone is very much improved.

It has been an honor to sing the National Anthem on multiple occasions with our local veteran's AVAST Color Guard presentations. Cameron worked with me for many lessons to improve my rendition of the Anthem. The Star-Spangled Banner is not an easy song and I wanted to sing it correctly. Cameron was very patient and helped me with the rhythm and diction. I sing it unaccompanied and I don’t read music, and I am in my 70’s. I think I am a challenge for my teacher! I have received several complementary letters on my performances, so I shared those complements with him because I could not have received them with out his help.

I highly recommend Cameron as a teacher and an honest person.
RagavG.
Mr Cameron is a wonderful teacher. Because of him I have learned more than I could ever possibly imagine. He teaches me little tips and tricks to keep me on task and to correctly play the violin. I may not have played violin for very long time but because of Mr Cameron I can play like I played the violin for 8 years! Mr Cameron has made me from a beginner all the way to a pro. Anyone who ever goes to Mr Cameron soon will be able to become a teacher. You forgot to keep your wrist straight, you forgot to keep your elbow straight, you are on the wrong line oh, don't worry, Mr. Cameron keep you on the goal. Mr Cameron is an amazing teacher.

Mark has been very flexible in scheduling and very patient in explaining theory. As an adult new to violin I think he has been great in terms of explaining new concepts and being incredibly encouraging. He is also patient and realistic in his expectations of students. Greatly recommend.

Mark was very knowledgeable, funny, and patient, he really cares about his students. I’m glad that he Was referred to me by take lessons.

Will
I came to Mark with utterly no background in the violin, wanting to start as an adult learner, and I can't imagine a better teacher than Mark. Mark is helping me gain crucial fundamentals while also learning fun pieces to strengthen those elements and encouraging me to select pieces, too.
I also like that he incorporates some music theory into his lessons.
Finally, I feel like becoming a violinist now, as an adult, isn't as crazy as I worried it might be since I have Mark to teach me.

Will was excellent! My 13-year old thoroughly enjoyed his lesson. Will was prepared and spoke in a way that was easy for my son to understand. He uses many different techniques and a multi-faceted approach to teaching so that he can develop a well-rounded musician. My son can't wait to have his next lesson with Will!
Elena
Will is AWESOME. So patient, encouraging, and keeps me engaged. I so look forward to our sessions.

Before starting lessons with Will I had never picked up an instrument before. I was so nervous to get started and had little confidence that I'd be able to learn. Will completely shattered that illusion and reminded me how good it feels to try something new!

Private Violin Teacher

I have 19 years of experience playing the violin, and have cherished every moment. Playing music is one of the most powerful and emotional experience an individual can have, and my goal is to help you along your musical journey wherever it may take you. I have taught ages 7-70, and am passionate about a variety of genres though my core training was in classical. I have worked with students in all stages of development, whether picking up the instrument for the first time or preparing for college auditions or international competitions.

Lessons will always be tailored with YOUR goals in mind, and I strive to make sure you come away from every lesson feeling excited and musically and intellectually stimulated.

I spent a number of my formative years studying violin remotely, long before the pandemic brought students to online platforms. I believe that online learning is just as good as traditional in-person instruction, without rigid schedules or geographic barriers.

Looking forward

About Kiarra

"Wow! What a great experience it has been with Humberto. I wanted a teacher that was passionate about the violin and I had a feeling that that was Humberto when I was selecting an instructor. I was right!!! His methodology and teaching style has me excited to practice, excited to learn and excited to see him every week. He is all about my progress and understanding and encouraging my own passion to play. As an adult, you always hear that, oh, you know, you'd be better off as an eight year old learning a new instrument than as a mature adult. Let me say that you can do anything you want to do at any age as long as you have the desire. Humberto has made my desire a reality and has put me on a path of what I think will be a long relationship with the violin and with -- happily, if I may say -- Humberto! To anyone out there looking for a good instructor, I highly, highly recommend Humberto."
