Nick Cameron is a prolific mandolinist and three-time vocal finalist in the National Association of Teachers of Singing Student Competition. He graduated in 2018 from the University of North Carolina at Asheville summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Science in music technology with distinction, and all of the credits for a Bachelor of Arts in music with a vocal concentration. Nick currently works as a full-time musician in the Washington metropolitan area, giving voice and mandolin lessons and performing in groups including Otto Sees Otto and the Oldgrass Stringband.
As a teacher, Nick believes the most important aspect of music-making is sustainability. By learning to use their instrument properly, students can avoid long-term health issues associated with poor technique, so that music-making is physically sustainable. Nick also thinks it’s important to keep the spark of joy from music-making alive, so it is emotionally and intellectually sustainable too. Given his extensive experience in a multitude of genres, Nick is comfortable teaching in a variety of styles, including musical theater, classical, jazz, rock, folk, country, and bluegrass. In addition to voice and mandolin, Nick also teaches guitar, octave mandolin, music theory, songwriting, and audio production.Sign Up For Lessons
