Private Violin Teacher

I feel what makes taking lessons with me unique is my experience teaching private violin and viola lessons in Texas public schools (grades 6-12) and my career as a professional musician having performed in many orchestral, opera, and chamber music settings. Through the lens of that performed experience, I know how crucial an education that includes classical music can be in a student’s overall academic development and maturation. Though not everyone pursues music as a career, no matter the student’s age, I wish to ultimately be a positive support system in fostering their development in their mirrored desirability to make classical music and incorporate it's richness and beauty into their life.

Hello! I'm a professional violinist/violist with over 20 years of playing experience. I started on viola at the age of 10, and began studying violin as well when I got into college. I have since performed all over the U.S, and internationally, even having the opportunity to perform with stars such as Lady Gaga and Imagine Dragons, and performing for U.S. president Jimmy Carter! From making appearances with orchestras as a featured soloist, to holding residencies on some of the biggest properties on the Las Vegas strip as a cover artist, to performing for major events such as Latin Grammys and Tedx, to touring the country playing country, jazz, and rock music, my broad range of experience can help any student, beginning to advanced, accel in their craft.

I studied music education with an emphasis on viola/violin performance at the University of Nevada Las Vegas, where I received a Bachelor's degree. Aside from a background in classical music, I have extensive knowledge in many genres

About Rahmaan

I first picked up the viola when I was 10 years old in sixth grade orchestra class, and I haven't put it down since. While most professional musicians were certain of their career paths from a young age, I had no plans to pursue music professionally, until an opportunity to perform at Carnegie Hall

With the highest range of the orchestral string family, the violin is capable of singing with the voice of an angel. Solid technique in combination with musical expression is what makes that possible, so these will be primary areas of focus during our lessons.

We will cover form (because that is the foundation of technique - without proper form, mastering the instrument is virtually impossible), intonation (which is as much about training the ears as it is the fingers), tone (I'm probably biased, but I think strings have the most beautiful and expressive sound of all of the instruments of the orchestra), theory (the grammar/vocabulary/sentence structure and written language of music), literature and history (the music itself, who wrote it, when it was written and in what context). It's a misnomer to lump almost 1000 years of the music of Western Civilization under the label "classical" (which technically represents less than 100 years of music history).

Cameron is an excellent teacher . He has vast musical experience and is so kind, friendly and patient with my son - Aarav .He has gone extra mile out of his way to learn about my son's learning pace and guided him
professionally to pick up the violin basics easily. Aarav was not only able to learn from him, but really enjoyed him as a teacher, as well.
Cameron is highly skilled at teaching. I would highly recommend him .
Luis
Cameron has been my voice teacher for close to four years.

I started taking voice lessons for the first time at a community college in Arizona. After moving to Florida, I met Cameron and resumed studying voice. It has been my pleasure to work with him and feel fortunate to have him as my teacher. He has helped me tremendously.

In the past, I was a baritone, but Cameron has worked with me to extend my range, so now I am more of a bari/tenor. He has helped me learn better breathing technique, so now I can hold my notes twice as long and my tone is very much improved.

It has been an honor to sing the National Anthem on multiple occasions with our local veteran's AVAST Color Guard presentations. Cameron worked with me for many lessons to improve my rendition of the Anthem. The Star-Spangled Banner is not an easy song and I wanted to sing it correctly. Cameron was very patient and helped me with the rhythm and diction. I sing it unaccompanied and I don’t read music, and I am in my 70’s. I think I am a challenge for my teacher! I have received several complementary letters on my performances, so I shared those complements with him because I could not have received them with out his help.

I highly recommend Cameron as a teacher and an honest person.
RagavG.
Mr Cameron is a wonderful teacher. Because of him I have learned more than I could ever possibly imagine. He teaches me little tips and tricks to keep me on task and to correctly play the violin. I may not have played violin for very long time but because of Mr Cameron I can play like I played the violin for 8 years! Mr Cameron has made me from a beginner all the way to a pro. Anyone who ever goes to Mr Cameron soon will be able to become a teacher. You forgot to keep your wrist straight, you forgot to keep your elbow straight, you are on the wrong line oh, don't worry, Mr. Cameron keep you on the goal. Mr Cameron is an amazing teacher.

Violin:
A wooden stringed instrument in the violin family; it is the smallest and highest-pitched. The violin typically has four strings tuned in perfect fifths, and is most commonly played by drawing a bow across its strings, though it can also be played by plucking the strings with the fingers (pizzicato). Violins are important instruments in a wide variety of musical genres. They are most prominent in the Western classical tradition and in many varieties of folk music. They are also frequently used in genres of folk including country music and bluegrass music and in jazz. Electric violins are used in some forms of rock music; further, the violin has come to be played in many non-Western music cultures, including Indian music and Iranian music. The violin is sometimes informally called a fiddle, particularly in Irish traditional music and bluegrass, but this nickname is also used regardless of the type of music played on it.
Lessons always start with the basics: Tuning, hand/bow

Extremely knowledgeable! Karen is a superb guitar instructor. Honestly, I was struggling. Discouraged! She helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, and moved me from beginner to intermediate in a matter of months. If you’re getting tired of learning from YouTube and smart phone apps, let Karen kick start your guitar playing. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks Karen!!

This teacher misrepresented her ability to teach the C system chromatic button accordion. I don't believe that she has ever played one. I asked her before purchasing a set of classes if she knew this instrument and was competent to teach it, and she said she was.

She didn't have one, so she could never demonstrate anything I asked about. She didn't know the key layout. She didn't know the conventions for numbering fingers. She didn't know the basic home key scale pattern.

I waited until I'd finished four classes with my new teacher before writing this so I'd have a good basis for comparison. He is immensely better at teaching this than she was. It further convinced me that she never should have represented herself as competent to teach this particular instrument.

Private Violin Teacher

As a graduate of The Juilliard School and a former member of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, I have extensive experience performing as a classical violinist and violist in solo, chamber, and orchestral music. I have been playing the violin since the age of 5 and have participated recently in many well known music programs such as the Verbier Festival in Switzerland, the Music Academy of the West, New York String Orchestra Seminar, and Aspen Music Festival. I have experience teaching in violin sections in orchestra and group classes through the Tufts Community Music Program. I grew up learning through the Suzuki method, so I encourage learning by ear and emphasize the importance of efficient and organized practice. In a lesson with me, I would focus on learning classical violin technique in order to produce the best sound, while allowing the student to pick their repertoire based on their musical preferences, however always encouraging exploration of the classical genre!

"Zhana is such a kind, thoughtful, and patient instructor! Our lessons give me the perfect balance of structure and fundamentals, along with playfulness and exploration. She is able to make the connection between the technical aspects of the basics and the musicality of a piece. Zhana regularly plays with me during our lessons, which has really helped me hear my intonation and what correction is needed. She is very understanding of the fact that I am an adult learner and do not always have the opportunity to practice as much as I like, but at the same time she is constantly encouraging me to learn more and improve my technical abilities. I would highly, highly recommend Zhana as a teacher for anyone looking for a new teacher!"
