Graham H.

Chicago, IL

(3)

Bgcheck Background Checked


You can play what you can hear. I work on developing the student's mental concept of how a particular piece of music might sound. This solid musical thinking translates into a reliable technique. Technique should come naturally and should not be overly thought, but I will explain what seems to work for me and analyze the student's playing.

Beginning students start with a method such as the well-known 'Piano Adventures'. Lessons should include some study of theory. More advanced students will work on progressively more demanding literature.

My adult students say I am insightful.

I feel fortunate to have Bill as my teacher. Bill is an outstanding player and teacher. I have been able to progress far faster with lessons with Bill than I could on my own.

When Bill was my band director over a decade ago, he was the best music teacher I'd had at that point. After reconnecting with him and having him work with me on my techniques more recently as an adult player, that opinion still stands very strongly. He has a wonderful way of phrasing things that help you just "get it," and has expert advice from everything from fundamentals and helping you achieve your best sound, to more advanced techniques such as double and triple tonguing.

I studied guitar with Kenny for five years and his lessons undoubtedly made me not only a better guitarist but a better musician. Kenny is an incredibly patient teacher with well thought out lessons that follow a natural scope and sequence while always fitting the needs a likes of the student. He is an expert communicator and an inspiring performer. I highly recommend his teaching to any and all levels of aspiring guitarist whatever the style of music.

About Spencer

I quit guitar at 7 years old. I realized that many people quit for the same reason I did: when their fingers stroked the guitar, they didn't like the sounds they heard. Like many, I grew tired of the instrument, had no motivation to build the required finger strength, and decided playing guitar wa

Guy's a legend and he's not even 30 I don't think. You will love learning to play with Spencer!!!!!

Miguel Tomas
I am taking Spencer's advanced course at the moment, and I gotta say... This guy is just prodigious.
He's really personable, so in our first lessons, I learned that he taught himself to play by ear, like many of the greats.
What is really helping me play better, is something he calls the art of transformation; something he learned from listening to rare vinyl records nearly 100 years old.
Not only will you get better at guitar, but if you ask Spencer, you will learn many interesting facts about music and it's evolution.
