Hello, and welcome to my profile! My name is Cameron, and I am here to help you reach your full potential. As a performer, I have been working in the North Carolina Music scene since I was 14 years old, in the rock/pop and classical worlds. I have extensive training in both, and want to pass it on to you.
If you want to learn to sing opera like the great Pavarotti, I can help. If you want to belt out your favorite musical theater pieces, I am here for you. If you want to be able to scream into a mic all night in a rock club and never even worry about losing your voice, I am your man! In addition, for all of those classical singers struggling to make the move from the opera to a rock setting, this difficult transition is one that I have made myself, and I can guide you through it.
I can also teach you the joys of playing bass guitar! Supporting the groove is just as much fun as leading it. Rock, pop, jazz, whatever your heart desires, I want to help you learn to excel in it. I will include more theory instruction here, as it is a bit more necessary to understand how to appropriately ground your group in the deepest bass groove possible. More than that, I am here to help you. With that in mind, think of what you want to be, and let's make it happen!
*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons with me will be very personal and laid back. Students (myself included) learn the best when they are comfortable with their teacher. This atmosphere encourages dialogue, which is a necessity between a teacher and student. The curriculum will be tailor-made for each student. The first lesson will be an assessment scenario, after which I will design a lesson plan that fits the student's needs and ambitions as a performer. In vocal lessons, I will focus on breath support and good physical habits, as all other aspects of singing fall apart without them. In addition to this, I will focus on ear training, to make sure the student will always be able to find his/her pitch with ease. Concerning the bass guitar, I will again focus on good hand techniques at the beginning, to make sure the player's full potential is unlocked.
*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide amp/bass guitar for bass guitar lessons. I have a keyboard I can bring to assist in vocal lessons, though the if the student could provide this, it would be preferable. Staff paper, books, etc. for theory lessons can be provided.
*** Specialties ***
In both bass guitar and singing, I would specialize in the rock/pop genres. With regards to music theory, I have the most experience with classical theory, though I also have considerable experience with pop/jazz theory as a songwriter/performing musician.
Cameron is an excellent teacher. He is very professional while also being friendly and approachable. Taking into account my personal goals, Cameron uses his expertise in pointing me towards where I need to improve, getting at the root of what it is I need to understand, practice, and master in order to achieve the next level. He's just an all around pleasant guy to work with.
