Welcome to OMF Brass Tutor, Cameron Chin-See 🎺

We are delighted that Cameron Chin-See will be joining the OMF Teaching Team this summer term, replacing our wonderful Fiona Bassett (who is joining the touring cast Chitty Chitty Bang Bang - best of luck Fiona, we will miss you!)

Cameron Chin-See is a trumpet player and teacher from Wolverhampton, currently studying for an MMus at the Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM), in Manchester. After turning down a place at the University of Oxford in 2019, Cameron opted to go to Manchester to take up a place on the highly selective ‘three-year intensive’ Bachelor of Music course at the RNCM, which he completed in July 2022 after studying with Murray Greig and Thomas Osborne. Cameron decided to stay on at the RNCM to undertake postgraduate studies alongside an ever-expanding freelance career - he has been in demand as an orchestral trumpeter, playing with most of the main orchestras in the North West, including regular appearances with the Hallé Orchestra, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic the Orchestra of Opera North, the BBC Philharmonic. He is also a regular player with Chineke! Orchestra in London, Europe’s first majority-Black and ethnically diverse orchestra. Aside from the orchestra, Cameron is a keen teacher and has been teaching students of all ages and abilities in Manchester for over two years. He also values chamber music and is a member of the celebrated Phoenix Brass Quintet (Semi-finalists at the 2023 Philip Jones International Brass Ensemble Competition), along with fellow students and graduates of the RNCM.

Why are you excited to join the OMF Team?

“I’ve always loved teaching but starting at Olympias is particularly exciting for me as they are a rapidly growing charity who are actually knuckling down and doing the work in championing diversity that so many have called for in the industry. It is foundations like Olympias that will make the difference when it comes to increasing diversity in the music sector by putting in the work at grassroots level. If I can inspire just one student at Olympias to pursue music further and to reap its many rewards, as I have been lucky enough to experience, I will be very happy!”

What is your Earliest musical memory?

“Wearing out the Beethoven 'Ode to Joy' button that was in the music section of an interactive encyclopaedia I had as a kid - I obviously had no idea at the time what an important piece it was but I was absolutely enthralled by the sound and in particular the trumpets and the choir!”

Warmest welcome Cameron, we can't wait to work with you :)
