Cameron C.

Nashville, TN

About Cameron

Cameron is a musician, teacher, and worship leader. He recently moved from Anaheim, CA 9 years ago to achieve a Bachelors Degree in Commercial Music at Belmont University and now resides in Nashville, TN.

Since 2004 I have gigged, recorded, and wrote/ co-wrote music in Nashville, TN. When I graduated in 2008 I went on the road for a couple years with an artist named Dave Hunt when I returned from the road I wasn't quite sure what to do next. I decided that I might enjoy teaching so for the last 4 years I have started small and built up my student base to around 30-35 students a week. I als
o teach high school music history and music theory at a home school tutorial and enrichment school in town. I simply use the college curriculum that I received and fine tune it for students from all levels of playing (basically like getting a college music lesson for much cheaper!)

"I have a passion and love for finding the best way to teach a new musical idea/technique/song, I am bold and will use the best way to teach you, based on your learning style."

*** Lesson Details ***
I teach multiple styles (jazz, pop, rock, latin, country, bluegrass, and classical) on the instruments listed on my page and love to teach songs, technique, and music theory in my lessons. I also throw in, if asked for, note reading, and ear training by transcription of staff notation and the Nashville number system.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Dedicated lesson space.
- Amplifiers for electric guitar and bass.
- Electric guitar, 2 Acoustic guitars, Classical Guitar, Ukulele, and Mandolin
- Audio Technica AT4040, Pre-Sonus TubePre, M-Audio Mobile USB DAC, Apple Mac mini, Logic DAW, and M1 Active Alesis Studio Monitors for Audio Recording.
-M-Audio Keystation Pro 88 for Piano playing.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring all curriculum. I expect each student to own the respective instrument that they are wanting to learn.

*** Specialties ***
I like to blend a basis of music theory in with my song instruction, and I teach blues, jazz, country, rock, bluegrass, and latin styles of music. Since I have experience as a working musician, having been playing rock music in live settings for about 8 years and also jazz music for 6 years with 4 years of jazz study at Belmont University, I would say I have gathered a wide range of musical styles and specialize in all of them.

I recently picked up guitar and have just concluded my 7th lesson with Cameron. He's done a great job at making the guitar fun and easy to understand. It is very clear that he is passionate about the instrument, and making sure that his students understand not only how to play certain songs but the theory behind them. It's been great having him as a teacher.

For years, I've wanted to play guitar and had picked up a very basic understanding of how to play along the way. Cameron quickly identified the things I knew and adapted each lesson to where my skill level was at. He was great at incorporating the things I wanted to know with the things I needed to know, and built my lessons from the meager understanding I already had. A great experience, all around. Highly recommended!

Great Success

As a middle-aged adult just getting started learning an instrument, I was concerned about how well I would do. Cameron makes the learning curve easy and with practical homework assignments along the way, immediate feedback is assured. Highly recommended

Jonah K.

Nashville, TN

About Jonah

Hello! I believe that music is something everyone can do: it can be played alone or in pairs (and trios, quartets,etc). Playing music is extremely rewarding. It's about discovering your potential, and having fun doing it! Having played music for 25 years, and teaching for 12, I have experience as a performer, composer, and producer. I grew up playing cello before switching to guitar, and graduated from New England Conservatory of Music with a BA in jazz performance. Most recently, I moved to Nashville where I am currently training to be a Registered Piano Technician.

*** Lesson Details
***
I offer a wide pallet of musical options. Whether teaching guitar, piano, bass, violin, or cello, I aim to provide a well rounded approach to the performance and understanding of music. Context is everything, so after we cover the basics, we can move in a direction of your liking. Whether you want to sit and compose by yourself, or let loose on stage in front of screaming fans, you will get there! In the first 3 to 6 months, we will cover basic music theory, technique, rhythm, and basic improvisation. After that, we can continue in any (and all) of these subjects, and begin to introduce ear training, the most essential element of your musical education. Overall, I want you to have fun and get what want out of your lessons.

*** Studio Equipment ***
piano, music stands, guitars, amps, chairs

*** Travel Equipment ***
Car, music stand, staff paper, instrument

*** Specialties ***
Balanced lessons -- playing by ear, learning the staff, composition, improvisation, try to have a little bit of everything with concentrations depending on the level and style of student.

He is a superior teacher! His musical ability is sine qua non. His ability makes it easy for me to learn from him. He began early with the cello, which he plays beautifully. He has also mastered other instruments. We play duets together and I enjoy playing with him very much. His theory is excellent; I have learned so much being his student. He has made me better and I feel more confident about my own playing and about myself.

I would definitely rate Jonah a 5 star teacher and would strongly recommend him to others.

We are so pleased with the instruction our son received this summer with Jonah. He is excellent with students. You can tell he cares about their progress and their personal goals and that they really learn with him as their teacher. We have taken lessons with other music teachers in the past with our older children, and we have not found one that takes as much time with the student and really cares that they learn the way Jonah has.

Laid back guy, great with kids, excellent musical knowledge

Jonah works with both of our sons teaching piano. He is positive and upbeat and encourages them to do their best. His credentials are impeccable with a wide-ranging and deep musical background/education. He expects success from the kids, he gently pushes them to succeed. He is always on time to our house and is trustworthy. We highly recommend Jonah.

Justin W.

Franklin, TN

About Justin

Hello! My name is Justin, a Christian musician that recently moved to the Nashville/Brentwood area from Michigan. I'm a pianist, guitarist and bassist that loves performing, teaching, learning, and above all enjoying life. When I'm not working on music, I'm usually found biking or running through the hills of southern Nashville. I love nature and all of the opportunities that it gives us to explore and learn!

I started my formal music education when I was in the third grade, taking classical piano lessons at my parents’ request. I progressed steadily but never felt truly connected to w
hat I was doing. Two years later, I was introduced to pop piano music through the worship band at my church. I learned to play by ear and read chord charts, taking my abilities far beyond the reach of classical piano. By the time that I reached high school, I was playing piano, guitar and bass as well as singing and acting. By my senior year, music had consumed so much of my time that sports were pushed to the side. I loved it!

Before I knew it, I was being pressured into picking a college. I had planned on going to school for Computer Science, but knew that music was my passion. While the money would have been great, sitting in a cubicle just isn’t my style. I decided upon Cornerstone University, a small Christian school in Grand Rapids, MI. For two years, I studied piano, voice and guitar in the school’s Contemporary Christian Music program. The program was great, but I needed a more competitive environment that only a larger school could offer.

In the fall of 2008, I transferred to Grand Valley State University and loved it! My teachers were great, the other students were supportive, and overall there was a culture of learning and growth. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Piano Performance from Grand Valley in April of 2011. I decided to take the summer off of working and enjoy the sunshine, then moved to the Nashville area in November of 2011. I’m currently serving as Worship Leader for a church in Nashville.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that every student is unique, therefore each lesson should also be unique. By understanding the student's motivation to study music and play an instrument, we can work together to set goals that will set the student up for success.

For piano, I prefer to use either the Bastien or Alfred series, depending on the student's goals, experience, and age. For guitar or bass, it depends on which style(s) of music the student would like to learn. I have plenty of resources available, so the sky is the limit. No matter which instrument you study, the ability to play properly is important from the very first lesson!

Above all, learning music should be fun! Life is about finding the balance between work and play - for me, music does that perfectly. What started as a simple hobby has turned into a wonderful career. With time and practice, it's amazing how much this small hobby can enrich your life!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Quiet home studio with seating for parents.

*** Specialties ***
While in college, I studied classical voice and piano, as well as a few semesters of guitar. During that time, I held positions as both a classical singer and a pianist at churches in town.

On the side, I specialize in pop and rock music. Before college, most of my piano experience was playing with bands, pit orchestras, coffee shop duets, etc.

Classical music is invaluable, but I realize that most students are more interested in learning how to play contemporary music. As a young musician that grew up playing what he heard on the radio, I'm able to incorporate classical music and technique with modern theory and aural skills. Once you have all of those basics, the student will easily be able to learn a variety of styles of music.

Nashville, TN

About Dustin

Teaching Experience:

Private Lessons - 22 years
Public and Magnet Schools - 7 years

I've tutored 100’s of students on Saxophone, Clarinet, Flute, Piano, Guitar, Bass, Percussion, Tuba, Trumpet and Voice just to name a few. I also give instruction in music theory, improvisation, arranging, composition, engraving, music notation, and general studio operations from recording to engineering. I give lessons privately and also teach within local school and magnet programs.

I hold a Music Performance Degree from the University of Miami, and have also studied at the University of Northern Io
wa and Florida International University in classical music, arranging, composition, jazz band, marching, ear training, theory, history, and business.

Professional Experience:

As a musician I have traveled to and performed in over 51 countries around the world, all the major cities in the US and many famous venues in New York City, London and Rome. I've appeared with such artists as: Michael Brecker, Arturo Sondoval, Jerry Bergonzi, David Sanborn, Bob Mintzer, David Liebman, Joe Lovano, Jamey Aebersold, Bobby Shew, Poncho Sanchez, Duffy Jackson, American Idol's Kimberely Locke, Earth wind and Fire, Lionel Richie, Clarence Clemets, William Shatner, The Miami Heat American Airlines Arena Band, and most recently in Nashville during the same event Steve Martin’s Bluegrass Band had played.

Student Lesson Details:

Most importantly, I believe music and music lessons should be fun and motivating. I custom build lesson plans based on a students individual goals and experience and use most efficient and effective methods available to achieve the best possible results. It is important that all students understand and learn the fundamentals of music yet I’m very accommodating to each student’s individual needs and goals.

Teacher Equipment and Studio:

The lesson studio is located in the heart of Nashville’s Music Row and offers a quiet teaching space, comfortable seating for parents, audio and video recording equipment and a host of other amenities. There is also a lavatory and free parking. I can also provide all lesson materials and books required for learning and some additional instruments are also available.

**Special services**

For the same price as the lesson time I can also provide instrument repair service. I have many years experience working on saxophones, clarinets, flutes and other instruments dealing with general maintenance, to complete overhaul. Please inquire for more details.

Dustin is a great teacher! I wasn't sure how it would be taking lessons online especially since I do not have a background in music and I'm learning the sax for the first time. He has made learning fun and easy. I can already play a song! He is very knowledgable and providing me with music theory as well. Highly recommend!

About Brianne

I am a working artist/songwriter with placements on Nickelodeon, NBC, Rockband, international radio airplay and was featured on "This Sing Off" 2014 Holiday Special with Timothy's Gift (video below). I graduated from Belmont University in 2009 with a BA in Commercial Voice-emphasis in music business. I am currently the co-owner of The Recording Republic here in Nashville, TN where my partner and I write/produce music and help develop artists. I have been teaching voice, piano, theory, performance and songwriting on and off for the past 5 years and love every second of it. I Can't wait to mee
t you and see what goals we can reach together!

*** Lesson Details ***
The most important things I focus on in my lessons are positivity and building confidence. The confidence learned expressing yourself creatively is something that bleeds over into all aspects of life. It's so wonderful watching a kid (or an adult!) gradually come out of their shells during the process.

During the first lesson, I sit down with the student and talk to them about their dreams and goals. That way, I can build a curriculum that perfectly fits their needs. We can learn anything their heart desires-from classical Beethoven to writing their own music! For basic piano I love to use the "Bastien" and "Alfred" basic collections because they are what I grew up on.

Can't wait to meet you!

*** Studio Equipment ***
In my studio I have a weighted keyboard, mic, amp, mirror and video for recording performances.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Mic, amp and video recorder are portable. Student must provide piano for in home visits. And plus, you'll need one to practice!

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in beginner classical piano and improvisation, beginner-advanced voice, theory, performance and songwriting of all styles.

Highly recommend Brianne!

I started taking piano lessons with Brianne a little over two months ago, and I have seen a huge improvement in my performance and confidence. Brianne is very professional and experienced, and she knows exactly what she's talking about. My favorite thing about the lessons is that she is takes time to get to know her students to find out exactly what their goals are and what they hope to get out of the lessons. I came in with some piano experience and an idea of what I wanted, and she was able to customize my lessons so that they perfectly fit me. Brianne is very encouraging and wants you to succeed. I would definitely recommend taking lessons from her!

I've learned soo much in such a short time

i've always wanted to learn how to play the piano but I never could find the right teacher. Brianne has really helped me find my place as a budding piano player. She is very thorough and makes learning fun. She creates such a calm atmosphere with no judgment and i really enjoy that. Another thing that separates her from the other teachers i've had is that she doesn't teach based on her agenda she teaches me what i want to know. I can't wait fro my next lesson!
