Since high school, Cameryn has been teaching private cello lessons and leading cello sectionals, and she continues to grow her outreach efforts to see more cellists in the valley.
In her private studio, Cameryn teaches cellists both classical and folk styles while focusing on building a great technical foundation. She works with each student to develop their musicality through the concertos, sonatas, and tunes they study.
Each student has the opportunity to perform in a studio recital each year, and is encouraged to attend music camps and workshops where they would be exposed to different ways and methods of teaching.
Cameryn also works with the Campo Verde High School orchestras as a cello sectional coach, and occasionally coaches the East Valley Youth Symphony cellists as well.
Gilbert Town Fiddlers - Community Outreach
Cameryn first became involved with the Gilbert Town Fiddlers (GTF) her final year of high school as a group member. Her year in GTF was an eye-opener as she had not been exposed to folk styles of music before.
Following her graduation, Cameryn made it a point to help out with GTF as an alumni, volunteering her time to coordinate the group's annual school tours. Soon after, Cameryn began assisting at weekly rehearsals and became the Rehearsal Assistant.
Now, Cameryn is the Community Outreach Coordinator for the organization, and assists the organization by helping them grow their outreach efforts to schools, local musicians, and organizations in the East Valley.

StringPlay - Faculty Member
In the summer of 2017, Cameryn was brought onto the StringPlay staff as a Teaching Assistant. In 2018, she was made into a faculty member and has continued to teach on staff since.
Part of StringPlay's camp curriculum is having the students break out into small groups to learn music by ear and arrange the songs and tunes under the guidance of a faculty member. Cameryn helps to coordinate these small groups, and has led elective classes on Collaborative Tune-Writing.
At StringPlay's Online 2020 Camp, she led the Collaborative Tune-Writing course for the first time, and the campers wrote three new tunes in the class! Cameryn looks forward to StringPlay each summer, and can't wait for the next.
