    About Cameron

    Teaching Philosophy: In all my years as a musician, I have seen firsthand how musical training benefits the student. It is about so much more than just learning to play the notes along with your favorite song; it actually enriches lives by fostering creativity, confidence, discipline, & self-expression, and it enhances problem-solving and learning skills that students carry with them outside the practice room. It is with this in mind that I take such pride in teaching! I teach students of all ages and skill levels, and I tailor each lesson to the needs and interests of the student. I help the student to continually set new goals, then break them down into small, manageable steps that will help the student grow into the musician he/she wants to be!

    *** Lesson Details ***
    It is always my primary goal in any lesson to serve the student's interests and needs. My own journey as an artist has given me a unique insight into the difficulties and questions that students face, and I use my experience to show them the way onward. I introduce students to new musical avenues that they might not have realized existed, and I utilize a broad range of methods to make the student as well-rounded as possible. I can teach a wide range of styles, including rock, jazz, classical, country/bluegrass, R&B, funk, Latin, and more. Areas that I teach include: music theory, technique, reading, notation, composition and songwriting, ear training, and fretboard organization. I also specialize in a number of technical approaches, including "shred" techniques (8-finger tapping, sweeping, legato, etc.) and fingerstyle techniques (country or classical style).

    *** Studio Equipment ***
    Spare room w/ amps, guitars, and seating for parents

    *** Travel Equipment ***
    I have guitar(s), instruction books and related materials, and an amplifier. I expect the student to have his/her own guitar and any of the assignments from previous lessons.

    *** Specialties ***
    My specialties include jazz, rock, blues, composition & arranging, improvisation

    I was looking for a guitar instructor for some time for my son who is 8 years old. And after seeing how Cameron teaches and interacts with my child I know I finally found "the perfect instructor" for him. Cameron is a very sweet and knowledgeable person and my son feels very comfortable around him. He is not pushy but has a nice/patient method to teach kids. We are very pleased with Cameron!
