Singers and musicians usually need a little help in getting started. They see the music videos online and on TV, hear the music on CD’s and Radio and want to do that too. Many set lofty goals about being the next American Idol or be the next Kenny Chesney or Sara Evans or Taylor Swift. With TV shows like Nashville Star, America’s most Talented Kids, American Idol. 1000’s of people want to: “Be like George Strait, Faith Hill, Brooks and Dunn or Carrie Underwood.” They see fun, excitement, fame and fortune. These famous performers are their hero’s. They don’t see the heartache, disappointment and struggles. Most have unrealistic expectations. Just like many young athletes want to be in the Olympics but a very very few make it top and win a gold medal.

Mr Campbell can help you with singing on pitch, your song choice, stage presence, working the crowd, develop a strong confidence, development of your own style, the making of a CD, career advice, overcome fear of losing, overcome fear of people, how to find places to perform, and dealing with unrealistic expectations.

Mr Campbell teaches fiddle/ violin, rhythm guitar, lead guitar, mandolin, and bass. He teaches how to read, how to play by ear, and how to sing the harmony parts. Mr Campbell does weekly music lessons but only takes a very limited number of students. They must have a strong desire to learn, and be willing to practice. The coaching fee is $92 per month for a four-week month. (For a 30 minute lesson) You pay up front for the month. If there are five weeks it’s $115.00

“Spectacular performance is always preceded by: unspectacular preparation, hard work, struggles, disappointment, hurts, stress, and practice, practice, practice for years and years. I believe a minimum of seven years before you can say you’ve paid your dues and only then will you see the fruits of your labor.”
