June 2006

These lessons are about you and your personal aspirations in music. Break into playing music for the first time or bust past that professional plateau. I will help you set realistic short-term goals that aim at whatever long-term goals you already have (of being a rock star, fluent improviser, early childhood song-leader, praise-band leader, rock star, songwriter, garage/basement/bedroom music troll . . . rock star).

I teach beginners, professionals, and everyone in between. I hold a masters in music education, and have taught most styles of music, including (but never limited!) classic rock, new rock, pop rock, rockabilly, blues, jazz, folk, country, bluegrass, Klezmer, solo acoustic, classical, and the Beatles (who get their own genre).

Spencer was a great instructor for me, as a young adult new to guitar. He was encouraging, flexible, and gave me lessons that were personalized to my skills and musical tastes, but also broadened my repertoire. I can't thank him enough for inspiring me through his love of music and of teaching. I will continue recommend Spencer's studio to others.

Spencer transfers his genuine appreciation of music and extensive guitar knowledge through a versatile teaching approach to meet individual needs. He fosters a challenging and fun learning session. He quickly tapped in to my musical interests and goals (I'm in my 50s) and instructed me, in a way, that encouraged both growth and confidence in playing. Spencer mentored and advised me on songwriting development, as well as provided practical advice/feedback on performance. If you want to learn about guitar, improve on your skills, and have fun doing it, Spencer is your guy.

My daughter has been taking guitar lessons from Spencer for 2 years. Spencer's professionalism and his ability to keep my teen interested in learning new music are the main reasons she has become the musician she is.

Spencer is a fine teacher. Very good communicator, inspires his students and he's so organized. I've been in the music biz for over 30 years---Spencer is a cut above, no kidding.
