Kameron's approach to private lessons is student-centered, grounded in applying instruction to musical styles and concepts that the student is interested in. Since the bass is a versatile and often essential instrument in music, these lessons provide comprehensive instruction in multiple styles from jazz to classical, country to hip hop, and everything in between.

Violin and Viola Suzuki Lessons
I am trained as a Suzuki teacher and love starting students as young as 3 years old, through the Suzuki triangle (teacher, student, and parent). In addition to weekly private lessons I teach "almost" weekly group classes for the development of ensemble playing and peer relationships.
I am however just as happy to work with new students of all ages and levels. **visit www.suzukiassociation.org for more info on the Suzuki method.
