Whether you're the next Taylor Swift, want to rock out like Metallica, or just want to play simple folk tunes around the campfire, I'm the teacher you want! I've performed on stage and have done studio work on top of teaching on both acoustic and electric guitar. We'll cover music theory, ear training, soloing, and explore different styles of music on top of learning the songs you want to play!

About Cameron

STUDYING WITH ME: Learning guitar should be interesting and fun! While we're studying all the different aspects of the instrument, you'll also be learning how to play your favorite songs and solos! I approach each student as an individual and structure their lessons according to what I determine

I've taken guitar lessons on and off for a while, and Cameron is hands-down the best teacher I've had. He points out specific technical good points and bad points, and offers concrete suggestions and examples for improvement. The lesson material is progressively challenging, but not overwhelming, and is targeted to the student's interests, and lessons are fun and interesting. Fantastic instructor.
Tessa
Cameron is an excellent teacher for me. I am 11 years old and have been playing for almost a year with him. He is patient and makes me stretch to be a better guitarist. He takes time to find songs at my level of learning and accommodates my tastes in music. I would recommend him for anyone who is interested in playing guitar.
Kim K.
I enjoyed my first lesson with Cameron. He explained things clearly so I could understand. Can't wait for my next lesson.

My kids thoroughly enjoyed lessons with Ed (both guitar and piano). Lessons started with my 7yo and when his brother turned 4yo, he started as well.

Ed is an excellent piano teacher! He is kind, approachable, and great with kids. It is clear he is an experienced musician, we are most likely going to try guitar lessons with him as well!

I am loving working with Dee! She is so understanding and gentle with me, while still keeping things moving, and ensuring that we are making progress.

Music awakens the inner soul, whether you just listen or learn to make your own music. Research shows music can enhance your concentration, build your confidence, decrease anxiety and increase your ability to analyze situations.

I strive to teach music in a way that will work best for each person and enhance their natural abilities and strengths.

I have been teaching private music lessons for 21 years. I graduated from Oral Roberts University with a BA in Sacred Music. As young boy I played piano and guitar by ear and in junior high began to music. In high school I learned to read music from singing in choir, and I also started writing song

Online Guitar Teacher

I am a recent Berklee College of Music graduate living in Chicago. At Berklee, I was the first rock/metal guitarist to receive the "Jimi Hendrix Award." This award is given to the best guitarist at the school. I've played and studied many styles of music ranging from classical, traditional, blues, country, rock, and metal.
Besides teaching, I have a passion for songwriting and performance. Here in Chicago, I am currently playing with various bands and writing my own music. My teaching style is very "goal-oriented," and I will teach students to set short-term goals, medium goals, and then demonstrate to them how reaching the short and medium-term goals leads to accomplishing long-term goals. I envision teaching much like my teachings at Berklee where once my lesson was finished, I only wanted to go home and learn more. If you want to learn multiple styles from someone who is truly passionate about the instrument, I'm your guy!
