Teaches students:
and Ages 8+

Teaching since:
February 2007

I am originally from Northeast Kansas, where I started playing guitar and studying music at the age of 9.

While studying guitar, I had several influential teachers, including internationally renowned finger-style guitarist, Andy McKee, and University of Montana Professor of Music and Classical Guitar, Dr. Luis Millan.

Later, in my teens, I also began playing the Banjo, Mandolin, accordion, and other various instruments.

While attending college at Washburn University in Topeka, KS, I began teaching private music lessons to students of all ages, and experience levels in Northeast Kansas. During this time, I also recorded and regularly performed with my bluegrass/country/cajun band.

I have experience playing and teaching numerous genres including rock, pop, country, blues, jazz, bluegrass, cajun/zydeco, reggae, classical, folk, etc.

I relocated to the Denver, CO area in the spring of 2011 after completion of my degree from Washburn University. I continue to teach private music lessons in the Denver metro area.

*** Lesson Details ***
I create fun / structured lessons plans, according to each students' musical interests and experience level. I believe students should be challenged, but also enjoy what they are practicing. I will make sure that beginning students are able to demonstrate and understand various basic to intermediate concepts of music. My goal is that my students will become well-rounded knowledgeable musicians, and will be able to comfortably play and perform with other experienced musicians. I am an easy-going teacher that will make sure students are learning a wealth of information about music, while having a good time doing it.

*** Studio Equipment ***
doesn't really have a studio but could teach out of his home if student really wanted to go.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide Music Stand, amplifier, chords etc.

*** Specialties ***
I can teach a variety of styles of music, including but not limited to, jazz, pop, rock, bluegrass, country, cajun/zydeco etc. I teach music theory/ site reading, flat pick guitar/finger-style guitar, Scruggs style banjo playing, improvisation, etc.

After more than 30 years since I last picked up the banjo Spencer did a great job of getting me reacquainted with it in a easy going, yet effective way. Excited to continue down the path with him as my tour guide !

Spencer is an outstanding teacher. Very patient and very knowledgeable of both music and the banjo. I'm having a great time and learning faster than I expected.

Spencer is awesome! He's super talented and kind. I'd pay for the lesson just to listen to him play. Highly recommended.
