BMP Teaching Artist Spotlight | Cameron Alan-Lee

At the Boston Music Project, we are proud to have an exceptional team with a diverse background of teaching and performance experiences. When our Teaching Artists are not teaching music lessons, they are pursuing their own professional careers as active performers, composers, music producers, dancers, and more!


This year we are excited to welcome Cameron Alan-Lee to the BMP Team as an Upper Strings Teaching Artist!


With a refreshing mix of thoughtfulness and spontaneity, Cameron Alan-Lee has captivated audiences around the world with his unique ways of music making. While attending the Colburn School of Performing Arts in Los Angles from 2009-2016, he studied privately with Chan Ho Yun and Aimee Kreston and was also a founding member of the award winning Chimera Quartet. In 2016 he and his quartet were awarded top prizes at the St. Paul String Quartet Competition, WDAV Young Chamber Musicians Competition, as well as the inaugural MPrize Chamber Music Competition.


Cameron continued his music making at the Cleveland Institute of Music in 2016 where he earned his undergraduate degree in violin performance while under the tutelage of Jinjoo Cho, Stephen Rose, and Jaime Laredo. He will be receiving his masters of music degree from New England Conservatory in 2022 under the guidance of Ayano Ninomiya.


We asked Cameron to share a bit more about his musical background and his life in and around music.


Who were some of your musical inspirations growing up?

“Growing up, I was always around music from my mother playing it on the radio to my older sister practicing violin. Because of this, I looked up to her quite a lot! As I got older, famous classical musicians such as Yo-Yo Ma and Jascha Heifetz were idols for me as well.”


What energizes you most as a teacher and as a performer?

“As a performer, I have always loved the opportunity to share music with others as well as the feeling of being on stage and seizing the moment. In terms of teaching, I feel many of the similar things but additionally a huge sense of pride and happiness for the students as they discover their own musical voice.”


What are you most excited about becoming a teaching artist at BMP?

“One of the things I’m most excited for is the opportunity to create a welcoming and fun atmosphere for the students. I’m also grateful to be a part of such a wonderful and joyous organization!”


Outside of music, what are some things you do that bring you joy?

“Outside of music, I love to exercise, mostly running and biking as well as hiking. I also really enjoy cooking and recently have gotten into playing Dungeons and Dragons!”
