Hi, my name is Camille Sanders and I was born and raised in the Concan area right outside of Uvalde. I’m thrilled to join the incredible team at Studio 3 Uvalde! I have a passion for creating music and teaching others to create music! I play the Fiddle, Piano, Cello, Mandolin, Guitar, and Ukulele. Music has given me the opportunity to play for former Gov. Dolph Briscoe and George Strait. I have opened for the Randy Rogers Band, Kyle Park, Joe Nichols, Tanya Tucker, Pat Green, The Bellamy Brothers, Pam Tillis, Daryl Worley and others. I was given the opportunity to act in a movie alongside Dolly Parton and Brian McKnight for a Christmas movie on the lifetime channel called “A Country Christmas Story.” Dolly Parton gave me recording rights to the song my character performed in the movie, and it became a chart topper in the UK. I am grateful for the opportunities music has given me, from being in a movie with Dolly Parton, to performing at Carnegie Hall in New York, and dance halls all over Texas. I'm so thankful for the blessing music has been in my life. I hope to help others realize the blessing of music!

I'm proud to say that Studio 3's own Erikk Castillon was my guitar teacher and has been my mentor, friend and inspiration since I first stepped into the studio. From the day I learned my first chord, it's been hard for me to believe that I had not picked up the guitar sooner...I love it! For me, music just "came alive" at Studio 3 and that's the kind of enthusiasm and interest I hope to spark from my own students.

Hello! My name is Pedro and I was born in Uvalde, TX and lived here for 9 years and then moved to Leakey, TX, but have since moved back to my hometown! Leakey ISD is where I picked up the Trombone. I always considered being able to listen to music a privilege, but now I had the ability to actually create music! Throughout the years I also learned how to play other instruments such as the piano, baritone, trumpet, and percussion. While in high school, I also learned how to compose music. Thanks to a wonderful teacher, I developed the life-changing capability of expressing myself through music!
I was able to be part of a band that loved music as much as I did and do things we never thought would be possible. My senior year, I was given the privilege of being head drum major and the honor of arranging our marching show music which we eventually took to the state competition. So many lasting and amazing memories were made from day one to my very last day of marching band!
Helping others to find themselves in music is an unexplainable feeling. The excitement of being able to build your own piece, play what's on the charts, or even a timeless classic is something I wish to share with others who have the same passion for music as I do.
