I love teaching and providing the student with different types of styles and genres to learn from. If you wanted to learn classical then we would focus on that and learn in the most efficient pedagogical approaches there are, but if you wanted to learn jazz or rock then we would instead focus on the creative and improvisational side of learning. What a student needs is also based on who they are and what music they love, and with a good combination of fundamental principles and musical exploration the student is nurtured to be the musician they want to be.

About Spencer W.

A multi-faceted pianist, Spencer Woods has performed in the Southern Kentucky and Nashville region since the age of 14. He has collaborated and preformed with touring rock bands such as Dan Luke and The Raid and Brad the Dad. Spencer has also toured with the Western Kentucky University (WKU) Wind Ensemble and premiered music for the professor of composition at WKU Mathew Herman. He is adept in performing works by a diverse array of composers such as Bach, Beethoven, Chopin, Debussy, Prokofieff, and Robert Muczynski.

In the summer of 2017, Spencer preformed in the Jazzit festival in Feltre, Italy. He has also performed in Florence, Italy, at the Accademia Europea Di Firenze and had master classes with Roberto Fabriciani and William Lenihan. It was in Italy that Spencer grew his love for jazz music, and upon returning to the United States he has started multiple jazz projects at recording studios such as Thunder Sound and Erskine Sound.

As a child, Spencer had lived in France and England before settling in the United States and had been taught privately by the award-winning pianist Douglas Gould and Karibay Narveaz from the Conservatory of Montreuil. From these experiences, Spencer loves many different types of cultures and seeks to express them through the different genres of music that he studies and plays.

Spencer has a bachelor of arts in piano performance and is currently getting his masters in pedagogy at WKU under Dr. Zachary Lopes.
