Terry R. Cameron of Trenton died Wednesday, February 21, 2018. He was an accomplished musician, music retailer and music educator. Mr. Cameron was well known in the Dade County area as a music instructor who had taught generations of music students.
A graduate of the University of Tennessee in Chattanooga where he earned a degree in music, Mr. Cameron was president/CEO of Cameron Music Inc., a business he and his father established in 1970 and where he began his lifelong career selling and teaching the instruments he loved.
As a gifted guitarist, he was a highly versatile and proficient performer across many musical genres including fingerstyle and classical, and he had released numerous recordings.
