I give lessons from my house in north Houston and I sometimes go to students homes depending on location. I teach beginner through advanced violin.
As a violin and viola teacher, my goal is to give my students fun and productive lessons. I teach my students all the essential technical and musical principles which help them to succeed at reaching their goals and avoid developing harmful habits along the way. I do not follow an exact method or course. My approach is to teach each student according to his/her particular needs which will usually require a combination of books or methods.

I have had the privilege of learning violin under some of the top 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 began violin as an adult. Cameron has always made certain lessons are at my level. If a technique needs more work, we focus on that. I always leave a lesson feeling like I am learning, and knowing I will continue to progress.

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.
