A fearless and strong trailblazer, Camille Hastings opened the doors of Leading Note Studios in August of 2009 with 5 students. This courageous move brought a compassion to music lessons you will not find anywhere else in San Diego. A graduate of Berklee School of Music in Boston, MA, Camille has taught and performed in Nashville and sang with Barry Manilow, Vince Gill, and Amy Grant. She has even appeared singing on national television as a child.
Camille is passionate about making music a gift everyone should receive. Her experience creates a culture of excitement, joy, and dedication to music education, allowing the young, and the young at heart, to start learning and performing music. Her idea of a successful recital is one where everyone gets to play, everyone is celebrated regardless of mistakes, and everyone is encouraged to continue learning.
Since 2009, LNS has grown to over 500 students and 25 professional teachers. Each teacher is well-credentialed and has been hand-selected by Camille to bring the same compassion and love for music she has brought over the last 10 years.
