About Cameron

Overview

During this time, I learned that I improved when I performed music that I liked. I attended Truman State University receiving an MA in music theory. I then moved to Los Angeles and worked as a recording studio assistant, until taking a job for ten years as a school music teacher For the last five years I ran a very successful music studio in California The lessons were taught in my studio, a
t the students' homes or online and I incorporated the students' interests in teaching. I have also performed for many years and have written many songs that have been recorded and performed.

The main styles include (but not limited to) rock, blues, classical, pop, jazz and country. Please contact me if you have any other questions about my teaching methods.

I would still be taking lessons from Mr.Cameron, if he wouldn't have relocated to another state.I really advanced in rhythm, jazz ,and blues. Mr.Cameron took me from a beginner stage of songwriting to a whole new dimension of writing from the third ear. Mr.Cameron teaches at your pace and learning style. Great musician and teacher.

Chau H.

North Las Vegas, NV

About Chau

My name is Chau and I am a transplant from Australia who has resided in Las Vegas for the last 10 years. I have a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Western Sydney and University of Nevada, Las Vegas, majoring in vocal performance and music technology. I am a wife to the best husband and a mother to three fabulous girls. I've been teaching voice for over 12 years and have loved every minute of it because I truly care about my craft and more importantly, my students and their creative goals. I was a Music Specialist at Merryhill School in Las Vegas, teaching K-8th Grade, until I be
came pregnant with my middle child. I've also worked in church worship teams for the past 15 years, both in Australia (Sydney and Brisbane) and Las Vegas, Nevada. My faith dictates the way I live my life and as a young child, my dad taught me to always strive for excellence in all that I do. This mentality has undoubtedly motivated my teaching career. My students can count on a teacher who is prepared and creative in developing a learning experience that will exponentially “grow” them in their creative field.
I inherited my love for singing from my Mum -- as a child I watched her perform and wished that I could one day do the same. At the age of 15, after auditioning, I was selected to be a part of the New South Wales Senior (High School) State Choir and as a result, I toured the USA in 1999 representing the Australian Embassy in the United States. This was around the same time that I caught “the bug” and decided to pursue music as a career. I then went on to study music, first briefly at the Music Conservatorium in Sydney and then finishing my Bachelor’s degree in Music at the University of Western Sydney. I was first classically trained vocally and with that background, moved onto more contemporary vocal styles. After marrying my husband, I moved to Las Vegas and began to study Counseling/Psychology at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Music and Counseling, to me, made the perfect marriage as I love music and love people equally. Needless to say, teaching music and helping people has made my life very fulfilling.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Recording Equipment
Intelligent Piano
Sitting area for Parents/Guardian
I will provide students with the necessary materials needed for instruction for e.g. Books, CDs, DVDs...etc

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in vocal techniques, and diaphragm/breathing techniques.
As far as style or genre are concerned, I use both, my experience in classical voice training and contemporary voice training, to keep my students engaged in their craft. I listen well to my student’s needs and meet them where they are at, ensuring that I meet their creative goals and not my own.

Nick B.

Las Vegas, NV

We will take you from learning what the notes on the staff are and how they relate to your instrument, basic harmony and the circle of 5ths/4ths to super-imposing scales and borrowing chords from neighboring keys in ways that work.

Nick has also transcribed over a dozen books for the Hal Leonard Publishing Co.

And you will be learning in ways that are fun to play, sound good and can be applied immediately to your current playing!

Stop waiting! It's time to begin or extend your guitar knowledge and get you achieving that sound you're looking for!

I had a week in Vegas set aside for a trade show, and wanted to also use the time to hunker down in my hotel room and work on my bass playing. I wanted to locate a teacher during that time to help me accelerate my playing over what I'd been able to figure out on my own, and I was extremely fortunate to be able to work in several lessons with Nick.

Nick's a terrific guy who's not only tremendously knowledgeable, but incredibly flexible in his teaching style and very quickly got me where I wanted to go. Thanks again, and my strongest possible recommendation!

Although I've only had one lesson, Mr. V took the time to ask me questions about my goals and what types of music I liked. He had me play some exercises to see where I was at in my ability and can now plan my lessons accordingly. I look forward to learning new things and progressing in my guitar-playing ability.

Marlow is a fantastic young man. He was able to diagnose my limitations and work around them, as well as help me work on them. He knew where I was coming from without my ever having to tell him, and whenever an issue came up, he helped me through it by explaining things in a very professional way. I highly recommend Marlow as a teacher
