The power and beauty of Egyptian music sparked Camille's initial interest in the dance and led her to pursue learning to play Middle Eastern music. This pursuit landed Camille in London, England, where she studied dance and rhythm with internationally-acclaimed percussionist and producer Hossam Ramzy. It was Ramzy that introduced Camille to his long-time mentor and fellow musician friend Wadie Nossier. Nossier, a former instructor from the Cairo Music Institute and a world-renown oud-maker, taught Camille Egyptian music and how to play the oud. At the end of Camille's stay in London, Nossier bestowed the honor of personally crafting her an oud for performances before she left England to return home to the United States.
