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 they need, as well as what they are interested in musically. I concentrate on many different areas; ear training, theory, playing technique, improvisation, various styles of music, and, the physics of the guitar. Understanding how the instrument works is important in my opinion. My long term goal is to teach a student how they can teach themselves down the line. Understanding why you’re playing something is just important as knowing how to play it. I aim to give a student rich and well rounded one-on-one time!

GENERAL BIOGRAPHY:

I h

ave been teaching and performing for over a decade both in the US, and in England. I have played in various bands and have produced independent artists. I have worked for a recording studio and for various academic institutions including the Filomen M. D'Agostino Greenberg Music School in New York city.

I obtained my degree from Purchase College in New York and am a member of their Conservatory of Music.

*** Lesson Details ***
I construct lessons for each individual student depending on their musical tastes, goals, and current skill level etc. I want each person to get as much from their time studying with me as possible. Within three to six months, I'll have you working on timing, theory, ear training, improv, and songs/styles of music you may be interested in. I'm laid back, however, I expect at least the minimum practice time between lessons, which I'll change throughout the course of our time together depending on your skill level etc. Practice materials I draw up are included. I write out everything in plain English and do not require the use of sheet music!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Small recording studio, piano, various guitars, bass, and amps.

*** Travel Equipment ***
guitar, bass, laptop, digital recorder.

*** Specialties ***
I concentrate on ear training, improvisation, and explore styles ranging from pop, alternative, rock, prog, and blues, to metal, funk, and folk etc. I do not require sight reading skills for any level of student. Rather, I work with the student with theory and arrangement conventions to really understand the music. This intern, greatly sharpens their musical ear and helps them to learn music much faster because they understand how it is put together; why and how it works, etc.

***Teaching Special Needs***
I have experience teaching students who have been visually impaired,
blind, hearing impaired, or who have had mild learning disabilities. I
am also comfortable with a student bringing their service dog or
therapy dog to our lessons if they wish.

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.

A solid teacher with a lot of experience

Cameron is great at tailoring the lessons to my musical taste without compromising the theory, basics and fundamentals.
I have been taking lessons for one year and will not go elsewhere anytime soon. His vast musical knowledge helps merge the theory with concrete examples. No question remains unanswered.

My child has been working with Stephanie and she is an absolutely fantastic vocal coach. My daughter is learning so much about her voice, vocal health and improving ever week. A++++

As an older guy who loves music but sounded like a squeeze toy when trying to sing, I had always believed I could not learn to sing but part of me wanted to try. I was nervous to sing even a single note in front of anyone and I was worried any vocal teacher would kindly decline to take me as a student once they heard what they were working with.

I can’t express my surprise, appreciation and excitement at how studying with Stephanie has gone. From day one I was comfortable singing with her. She makes me laugh so much that every class is a blast. I can actually sing now and I know I’ll keep getting better and better as I work with her.

She taught me it’s all about the mechanics of the body and her confidence in my ability to learn made me believe it. I’m so grateful to have found her and the amazing experience of growth and learning I’ve had with her. I look forward to working with her every week and I would highly recommend her to anyone at any level of singing.

Stephanie is an amazing vocal coach. My daughter has learned so many techniques from her that have improved her singing ability. I highly recommend Stephanie. She is positive, caring and passionate about what she does. Dont have anything negative to say! We love working with Stephanie!!!

About Mark

I'm a saxophonist/woodwind player/composer living in Miami and currently finishing my doctorate at the University of Miami. I've been teaching instrumental performance, improvisation, music theory, and composition for 20+ years in every situation from solo master classes, University lectures, large ensembles, private lessons, and elementary school.
My current doctoral essay focuses on how to teach improvisation in any setting with any instrumentation and I hope to implement this as a class for music educators.
Because we all have such different learning styles, I pride myself on finding out exactly what a student wants to accomplish and tailoring exercises and explanations specifically to the student rather than a stock pedagogy for everyone.
I perform regularly around the Miami area as well as travel internationally for tours. My c

urrent performance schedule can be seen at small music dot com. Also currently teaching saxophone and theory at the New World School for the Arts

Mrs. Hollis is a very kind and patient instructor. She is great at teaching technique and important skills that have to be learned in order to play the violin at your best. My son Ben absolutely loves taking lessons with her and he has learned so much. She is so professional, talented and has so much experience! She is a perfect instructor for anyone who would like to learn to Play the violin!

Olivia
Mrs. Hammonds is such a wonderful teacher! I came to her when I just started high school and was overwhelmed with joy when I found such a great teacher. Focusing on memorization, technique, and working on a solid foundation even after playing for 10 years prior, really reflected in my playing. I think she was the teacher who really showed me why I wanted to play violin and set my foundation up to improve more and more even today!
February 18, 2019
Kim
As an adult student that let my violin sit idle for too many years, Hollis was able to help me regain some basics skills and build upon them to re-learn different playing styles. Her approach was refreshing and focused on helping me re-learn some classical pieces that were familiar to my background. In addition, she introduced some jazz and fiddle pieces that I was interested in branching out with and worked with me to fine tune bowing techniques for each style.
I would highly recommend Hollis as an instructor for anyone starting out or looking to improve upon existing skills!

My family moved to the U.S. from France 1 year ago. Mr. Jeff is able to conduct lessons for my children in French with no barrier. He is professional and my children remind me at the beginning of week for their weekend lesson days away. It is a highlight.

Bgcheck Background Checked


About Norwood

I am a professional vocal coach with 5+ years of experience, as well as an international pop artist, actor, emcee and public speaker. I've studied a wide range of techniques including classical vocal training, contemporary singing, and the SLS (Speech Level Singing) method.

Over the years I've trained under the best vocal coaches in the nation including Jan Smith (Usher, Justin Bieber, Rob Thomas, etc.), RAab Stevenson (Justin Timberlake, Kelly Clarkson, Kelly Rowland, etc.), Lis Lewis (Maroon 5, Rihanna, etc.), and Renee Grant-Williams (The Dixie Chicks, Carrie Underwood, Christina Aguilera, etc).

This wide range of study combined with years of teaching and performance experience have given me a vast vocal vocabulary to help teach others the "secret sauce" of singing and speaking. I have experience teaching from ages 8+, for those wit

h special needs, in a wide variety of styles and genres. I also teach professional speakers and actors how to use their speaking voice properly. My students say that I am a patient teacher who takes time to explain how the voice works and help them reach their potential.

My goal is to help share the fantastic techniques I've learned from the A-Level coaches with the masses at a fraction of the cost. Students of mine often hear a big improvement in their voice after only two weeks of lessons!

Norwood is extremely humble and easy to work with. He never made me feel like I wasn’t good enough but always made me feel like I could reach a higher level of excellence for my unique range. He embraces each voice as its own and meets the student where they are at. He is extremely knowledgeable on how sounds are created, how space is made in the voice, and he is able to communicate that knowledge effectively to the student. In short, I loved having Norwood as a teacher.

My 10-year-old son Lucky started taking lessons with Norwood a few months ago, and it’s like a star has been born! He has seen a big boost in his confidence, his pitch has gotten much better, and he really enjoys the lessons. He has even started performing! The changes have happened very fast.

About Lucas

I’ve been playing music since 2001, and performing in bands since 2010. My students LOVE lesson night. The key is meeting students where they are and listening to them; a concept that gets overlooked. Parent feedback has been amazing, and watching the student’s progress has been priceless.

Whether you’re taking mandolin, guitar, banjo, or whatever instrument you enjoy, you’ll find lessons with me to be both enjoyable and educational. My approach involves both A. Learning Songs (the what) and B. Music Theory (the why); an important balance. I look forward to watching you fall in love with your instrument :)

Lucas has been working with my daughter for nearly a year, and she's really loving it! As a typical 6 year old, she doesn't have the longest attention span, but Lucas is patient with her, and that has helped her advance with confidence. We recommend!

Mehak Agarwal
"As a student of Teresa's I can say myself and my family are very pleased with the progress I have made all thanks to her! She is a teacher who truly liste
ns and proceeds according to what the student desires to learn, rather than taking a very traditional method. To be able to learn pieces of my generation, rather than that of the past, it makes the learning experience and my talent pay off much more in the long-term. Thanks to Teresa, my life has become much more musical and has gained an escape within the keys of my piano."
