As one of the inner voices of the orchestral string family, the viola has a rich and beautiful sound. 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).

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.

Mr. Cameron is an extremely patient and receptive teacher. His feedback is always helpful, and when you are struggling with something, he will offer insightful guidance that frames the obstacle from new perspectives. His expertise will be incredibly beneficial to learners of any level.

Cameron is a wonderful violin instructor for our son. Our son is 12, turning 13. He is easily frustrated, and Cameron works with him well. He pushes gently for our son to do his best without overwhelming him.

I Love to teach viola, because I love the way this instrument sounds. Everyone thinks it is just like violin but actually there is so many different way to bowing and tech from violin. My goal is make hear how viola sounds, it can actually even touching then cello and violin in some melo piece .

First lesson for my 11 year old son with Christina. She has a very nice studio that my son was very comfortable in. She identified his level and sent him home with much more difficult pieces than his previous teachers. He has been practicing more because it is more difficult but also he seems to enjoy the challenge which she created for him. Thanks Christina, I am looking forward to watching him progress under your guidance.

Such a wonderful teacher ! Christina is kind and so patient with kids who are learning music. She is so smart and her knowledge in music is amazing. My daughter has progressed significantly in the last few months with Christina , at a much better pace than all her previous years learning with other tutors. She is training my daughter for ABRSM exam too . Christina has great communication skills and always lets us know the ways to help kids learn better. Her positivity and graceful presence has made my daughters passion for music increase immensely !! Great teacher !!! Highly recommended!!

This was our first adventure with virtual teaching. I can't imagine that we could have found a better teacher. My daughter is 10 and Daniel has made her love for violin grow. I have never once had to force her to practice. She watches the videos of their lessons multiple times a week. It has been an absolutely amazing experience.

I feel what makes taking lessons with me unique is my experience teaching private violin and viola lessons in Texas public schools (grades 6-12) and my career as a professional musician. Through the lens of that experience, I know how crucial an education that includes Classical music can be in a young student’s overall academic development and maturation. Not everyone pursues music as a career, however, no matter the student’s skill level, age, or degree of commitment, I wish to ultimately be a positive support system for a student’s development in their desirability to make music.

I started viola 8 years ago in order to expand opportunities and get to know more about this amazing instrument, but I began teaching about 4 years ago. I teach beginners to advanced students, and incorporate basic music theory, note reading, and any other skills a student may require based on their skill level.

"We have tried a few instructors for strings and they were not the right fit for us. We finally struck GOLD with Charles! Very professional, not at all condescending with his feedback (this was our problem with a couple others), taught my son things he has not learned in school in terms of correct form/placement of viola, and bow technique. We are very excited for the next lesson!"

"My daughter has been taking lessons from Will for about a year. We are lucky enough to live near Athens, so lessons take place at our home. I have been so pleased with Will. He is a great teacher - enthusiastic, kind, patient, and knowledgeable. Even though he has many students, he always remembers exactly what they were working on. He takes interest in my daughter's life and will ask her how marching band is going, or other things about school. I especially like that Will is someone that she can look up to as an example of hard work and perseverance. He's not only a great teacher, but he's just a good person, and I am so glad we found him!"

"Megan is so pleasant and fun! She has strong focus on technique, and explains these practices in a way I can understand. Since I am a beginner, and adult learner, it's important that my music teacher is patient and cheers me along throughout the process - Megan definitely has that gift. I also appreciate that she writes down technique tips and exercises for me to practice at home (so I remember what she taught me in class.) I'm looking forward to continuing to learn from Megan, and play music beautifully on my Viola one day."

He's a talented musician but it takes a talented tutor to pull out greatness in an artist. She achieves this with a style and grace that leaves an impression. Thank you for your efforts with my son."

"She's the best! My daughter started on violin with the school and then moved on to viola. Finding a viola teacher is no easy task! In fact, finding anything for the viola - music, strings, etc ... is difficult! But Kimberly does a great job and got her off to a wonderful start. We are so incredibly happy to have Kimberly teaching our daughter. Do not rely on your child's school to teach viola - go directly to Kimberly."
