Cameron C.

Littleton, CO

About Cameron

*** Lesson Details ***

I have a “parent’s always welcome” attitude in a well equipped furnished basement studio. I can make recording and CD creation available.

My teaching method guarantees you how to play the guitar, not just songs by memory or tab.

I call my style the Quick Fret board Mastery Teaching Style. Using this you will learn quickly how to play songs and have fun, but will be gaining the fundamentals all along. There are no boring theory classes or repetitive scale sessions, but you will leave each lesson with new knowledge of theory and scales without actually studying
them separately. You will instead being playing songs and having fun.

We have a custom workbook that includes CHORDS, SCALES, PROGRESSIONS, CHARTING and ADVANCED THEORY. The workbook outlines the basics, we add to it every week with material customized for you.

We go as fast or as slow as you decide. We give homework, but it is not mandatory.

If you are a student you will shine in your school, group or band. If you are an adult you will be amazed at how fast you learn and how good you will become.

We hope you grow to love music and the guitar as much as I do. ROCK ON!

*** Studio Equipment ***

Finished basement set up as music studio with guitars, amps, a sound system and seating for parents. Les Paul, Strat, Martin and Taylor guitars. Fender (2) and Mesa Boogie amps. Full sound system. CD, Mp3 player and Laptop with ITunes. 4-track digital recording systems. Plenty of room, chairs, stands, etc.

*** Specialties ***

Blues and rock guitar

***Experience***

I have played rock and blues guitar for 30 years. I grew up with the Beatles and Rolling Stones, but now play in the Albert King, Buddy Guy and Eric Clapton blues styles. I know most rock, blues, folk and jazz styles with some knowledge of country and classical.

I have been the rhythm, lead or bass guitar player in six bands spanning 30 years. My current band is West of the Blues.

I was mentored by Mike Bruce. Mike was BB King’s, Bobby Blue Bland’s and Bob Seger’s lead guitar player for many years. He has played with everyone from Eric Clapton to Janet Jackson.

During the Mike Bruce period my band opened for him almost everywhere. He became my mentor and guitar teacher and only then did I start learning how to play the instrument that initially looked easy.

I have taught Rock Band and Guitar in Denver Public Schools for the past four years.

I have taught guitar and bass informally for about 14 years and our Littleton based lesson studio has been in operation for eight years with lessons taught more formally.

I also am the founder of and current teacher at the School of Blues Colorado. Additionally I am the Band Director for 3 of the School of Blues bands.

We couldn't be happier!

My daughter has been taking guitar lessons with Cameron for several months now. She really loves it, and has learned a great deal. She is learning both guitar and bass guitar, and Cameron leaves it up to her which one she wishes to focus on that week. He is flexible, patient, kind, with a comfortable laid-back approach. My daughter leaves her lessons inspired. Cameron has a comfortable well lit studio in his home. He is an experienced teacher and performer, and has good advice and tricks to make learning easier. She is using a personalized workbook for lessons, and there is an emphasis on improv and learning by listening. We couldn't be happier!

I have been studying violin for 17 years and have performed all kinds of music from classical to rock. As of Spring 2016 I completed two Bachelor of Arts degrees in Music and Psychology and two Graduate Certificate in the Suzuki Technique and the Alexander Technique. During my education I was fortunate enough to study violin with Jerilyn Jorgensen and Brad Watson. As well as, perform in the Lamont Symphony Orchestra. I was also able to study violin, music performance, and composition with Carlo Feige, Roberto Andreoni, and Simone Fontenelli in Milan, Italy for 4 months during my junior year. D
uring my undergraduate degree i chose to accompany my music with a psychology degree, focusing on cognition as well as social and child psychology.

Given the extensive nature of my musical training and my great passion for music, specifically the violin, I can offer a student an engaging and instructive experience, that will allow them to reach any goal.

*** Lesson Details ***
I take an all inclusive approach to teaching violin, that encourages students to proactively participate in the learning process. My lessons are geared around encouraging a student's creativity and musicality while at the same time providing them with the tools to work through each piece and each technical aspect of playing the violin.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons take place in the living room. There is seating for parents and plenty of parking.

Nicole is committed to teaching a full appreciation for the violin. Despite the fact that my daughter has yet to play a note in her lesson, she has learned a tremendous amount & will be properly prepared in technique, form, tone & overall knowledge to play with confidence. Although my daughter hoped she'd be playing by now, she's become even more motivated to practice now that she understands there is so much more to the violin than playing a song. We look forward to seeing our daughter grow under Nicole's direction.

I honestly cannot say enough positive things about Rachel. We met her through CYT where my daughter took theater classes from Rachel and was directed by Rachel in several musicals. Because Rachel was so wonderful to work with and so clearly talented at teaching and directing, several years ago, my daughter started private vocal lesson with her and I have seen my daughter's vocal abilities grow in leaps and bounds. Rachel is an ace at picking music to work on that stretches abilities while at the same time, keeps vocal lessons fun. I highly recommend her as a voice and theater coach.

Denver, CO

About Kevin

I truly enjoy teaching. I've taught in the public school classroom for 11 years. Teaching music is so so much FUN! And it should be fun for the students to learn. When I'm teaching I tell all my students that if they don't enjoy and smile about something, then we need to change something.

I would love to start lessons with you soon.

This was the first lesson. I'm starting from scratch with learning all about the guitar. Most of the lesson was spent with Kevin trying to show me how to tune my new guitar. Then there was a glitch with my trying to download the guitartuna app he recommended, so that didn't work. Little disappointed. By lesson #2, my guitar should be fine-tuned. Kevin provided practice lessons. I look forward to practice practice practice. Kevin was patient, very knowledgeable, and seems like a great instructor to learn from. I look forward to the next lesson.

Kevin is a great instructor. Really enjoying my lessons. If doing them over skype, I would recommend using a hardwired connection and not wifi. Laggy skype connection on my end is the only problem. Kevin's connection is fine.
