My students have spanned every age, experience level, and walk of life through the years... Some wanted to join a band, some wanted to go on to music school, some were aspiring songwriters, and others were simply interested in an awesome hobby! I've been teaching acoustic guitar for over 13 years and teach a mix of playing technique, music theory, ear training, as well as working on songs and styles of playing that the student is interested in. Along with my teaching experience, I have plenty of stage and studio experience as well which allows me to bring those things to the table. More real world and less dry and academic you might say...

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.

I enjoyed my first lesson with Cameron. He explained things clearly so I could understand. Can't wait for my next lesson.

There are several aspects to performance that I can help a guitarist with. The chief one is solo performance and improvisation which I have taught many students even kids in school bands who need to improvise in the jazz band and don't know how. Another aspect is how to use a guitar amp properly at higher show/concert volumes as far as tone settings and use of effects. Makes a huge difference when you know the insider "secrets". So you can even bring your amp for an "amp lesson".

I took 5 lessons with Ed, very great instructor. I learned a lot in those few lessons. He helped with with my pitch and with my accent that I had to prepare for an audition. With his help I was accepted into my high school’s A cappella group “Madrigals” and overall I would recommend. We made it work and tried to make the best out of the situation. Great experience:)

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.

Hey there! I offer flute lessons in my home studio in Louisville, KY and online. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education, am a certified music teacher, and have been teaching flute lessons for four years.

I quickly learned at a young age that I love the flute and have had amazing experiences since then that have shown me how to perform joyfully and confidently.

I know what it's like to:

--lack confidence in your playing (especially if other humans are around).
--feel the pressure of needing to "look good" and impress others all the time (all-state band, anyone?).
--become overwhelmed by comparison and perfectionism.
--feel like you'd rather do ANYTHING but practice the flute (procrastinators - I got you).

I know because I've been there.
And I know it doesn't have to be this way!

As a flutist and music educator, I have the joy of wearing many hats as a private flute teacher and sectional coach. My experience with little ones all the way up to pre-college flutists allows ...

Kristen really has been so helpful! I feel much more confident when walking into auditions. On top of helping me fine tune songs, and make artistic decisions, she has also been super willing to help me pick songs for auditions and really make my experience what I need from her.

Kristen is lovely and my lessons with her are the highlight of my week! My 5-year old daughter is also taking lessons and watching her build confidence and feel inspired by Kristen is the best gift.

I studied jazz guitar with Derek DiCenzo at Ohio State University, and have performed extensively in the genres of rock, blues, country, and classical music.

Since 1998, I have taught as many as forty private students per week, many of whom have gone on to pursue the instrument through college, conservatory, and performance.

About Chris

Hi there! Thanks for visiting my profile. I've been playing guitar since 1980, and teaching since 1998. After taking piano lessons as a small child, I fell in love with the classical guitar around 11 years old and haven't put it down since. I'm comfortable teaching children and adults of all skill

"It's a blaze to work with Luther! He identified my problem very quickly and provided concrete advices on improving the sound. His understanding on how beautiful sound is made is very clear and systematic. There are so many dimensions in the sound making for violin but he always breaks it down and works on each individual part of my postures and bowing. My sound is now much fuller than before! He also not only teaches violin but also how to think about music in general. I feel like I am constantly critically thinking on how I can experiment with each phrase after I take lessons with Luther. I will highly recommend Luther if you want to find a violin teacher!"
