Lesson Details

Guitar

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I am very passionate about the guitar and want my students to take lessons on their own terms, learning the things that inspire them to improve on the instrument. No one likes to be forced to learn things, therefore I try to facilitate lessons in a way that nurture the students interests and strengths and allow them to have fun with it, that's most important after all! Students who wish to challenge themselves and push the limits will also find that I can match the intensity however!

Teaching since:
2003

My name is Cameron, I’m 27 years old, born and raised in Redwood City California and I’ve been playing guitar for 17 years. I have been performing and recording with various bands and I started teaching lessons about 10 years ago. I recently completed a year and a half of school at the Berklee College of Music in Boston studying guitar performance where I focused on jazz, latin, fusion, and a variety of styles, and since then have moved back home to pursue a career with my current band, Letters From The Fire.

My primary background is in rock/metal but I enjoy playing and teaching all styles and all skill sets. I am very passionate about the guitar, and I love to teach and consider myself very patient and open minded when it comes to my approach. I like for students to take lessons on their terms, learning the things that inspire them and give them the drive to further themselves on the instrument and as people. Feel free to contact me, I would love to get some lessons going!

In the several years that I took lessons from Cameron he made me a much better guitar player and all-around musician. I definitely improved on my speed, technical skills, and theory; but he also helped me improve my musicality and my ear, which is so important in becoming a better musician. Cameron is extremely proficient in all genres, including rock, metal, blues, jazz, fusion, etc. He can play and teach anything. Not to mention the fact that he is a great guy and very patient and helpful with his students. I would highly recommend Cameron if you want to become a better musician at any level.
