About Mr. Cameron
Wayne Cameron has been helping young trumpeters to reach their goals and potential for almost 50 years. Retired from the esteemed Peabody Conservatory of Music, Mr. Cameron is not only known for his ability to diagnose physical and psychological problems (embouchure problems and performance anxiety) in his students but also able to develop successful strategies to solve these concerns. Mr. Cameron welcomes the opportunity to work with dedicated, talented students who seek insight into problems that may be keeping them from meeting their goals as performers.
Mr. Cameron has had a varied performing, teaching, and conducting career. Before graduating from East Carolina University, he auditioned and won the 3rd/Asst. 1st trumpet position in the North Carolina Symphony. While in graduate school at Peabody, he won the Principal Trumpet position in the Annapolis Symphony under famed pianist and conductor Leon Fleischer. At age 19, Mr. Cameron performed with the London Symphony and, once in Baltimore, also performed with the Baltimore Symphony. He has performed as a soloist and as 1st trumpet in the Chesapeake Brass Quintet and is in demand for clinics and workshops on trumpet performance and performance anxiety control.
In addition to teaching full-time at the Peabody Conservatory of Johns Hopkins University, Mr. Cameron held teaching positions concurrently at the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC), Shepherd University, Morgan State University, and York College of Pennsylvania.
Mr. Cameron has conducted the Frederick Symphony, The Peabody Brass Ensemble, The Peabody Prep Brass Ensemble, The Peabody Prep Wind Ensemble, Night Train (jazz ensemble from Essex Community College), and the UMBC Symphony. His conducting experiences give him a unique performance perspective.
