Teaches students:
Ages 4 to 75 and special needs

Teaching since:
August 2011

As a violin and viola instructor, my goal is to give my students lessons that are as fun and productive as possible. I teach my students all the essential technical and musical principles which help them to play the violin expressively, prevent them from developing harmful habits and help them reach their full potential. I do not use an exact method or course, but rather teach each student according to his/her particular needs. I teach beginner through advanced level.

I have been privileged to study violin with some of the most respected violin teachers in the US. Many of my teachers were graduates of Juliard and other top music schools where they studied with some of the most famous violin teachers of the 20th century including Ivan Galamian and Josef Gingold. I have also studied with Texas String Teacher of the Year winner Henry Rubin.

I teach violin from my house in north Houston and I can travel to your home as well (prices vary depending on location). I teach beginner through advanced. If you are interested you may call or text me.

My first lesson was today. I know I have made the right choice of instructors.

Cameron is great and really wants his students to learn violin the correct way. I tend to want to take shortcuts and he encourages me to learn the foundation and work from there.

First class, showed how to hold the violin and how to hold the bow. Reviewed what classes would entail, examined violin and adjusted some strings to tune. Good lesson as I am a total new person to the violin.

Very patient! He works with my 6 year old child! I am anxious to continue lessons! She learned so much with just 5 lessons! She knows how to read music! She is very comfortable with the violin now!

My son took Viola lessons from Mr. Keys for a year. He thoroughly enjoyed learning from him. His dedication to proper technique was excellent. He is very knowledgeable about the instrument and provided plenty of opportunity for my son to grow in his ability.

Thank you, Cameron.

My daughters, Ella (8) and Grace (6) have recently started violin lessons with Cameron. He is friendly and easy going and they seem to enjoy the lessons.

Cameron has been my teacher for a year and a half now, from the very beginning of me wanting to learn how to play a violin. In that time, he has been beyond patient showing me how to correctly play the instrument. He encourages me to be better. He works with my schedule as well as my learning curve. When I am stuck on something, Cameron provides tips and figures out a way to get me past the problem. I will continue as one of his students!

I've been taught by Cameron for a little over a year now. He is a really down to earth and friendly guy. He is also extremely knowledgeable about the violin and music in general and still constantly practices and improves himself. During lessons he'll tell you exactly what you need to work on and what you need to do for practice.
