Upright & Electric Bass Lessons, Music Theory, Improvisation
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.

Piano, classical, popular music, jazz, improvisation
I teach piano both "by the book" and "by ear" because today's students need to be able to do both. I am mostly self-taught but has been fortunate to have some great teachers, notably saxophonist and improv method guru Jerry Bergonzi, and Music At 10,000 Lakes artistic director Liz Wolff.

In addition to being a lifelong freelance musician, I have served as music director for Collide Theatrical Dance Company and Interact Center For the Visual and Performing Arts. I am on the board of directors of the Minnesota Music Teachers Association, where I led the development of their Popular Styles exam program, and am an active member of the Minnesota Federation of Music Clubs.

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.
