With 22 years spent behind a drum set, a Bachelors degree in music performance, and 8+ years of teaching/performance experience, I provide professional and engaging drum lessons for all ages and skill levels. With a proven method, my students have gone from having no musical experience to confidently playing along with their favorite songs, reading music off the page, and performing in bands! Fun, encouraging, and patient, I build great relationships with all of my students. I always work through material at whatever pace is needed for the student to succeed. My students enjoy their lessons so much that my average student takes lessons for 2 years. 63% of my students continue with lessons for at least 1 year and 30% of my students stay with me for 3+ years. I love sharing my passion for music and my knowledge about drums with my students. Watching my student have that "light bulb" moment in lesson, and seeing the accomplished smile form on their face never gets old. I love watching shy/cautious students come out of lessons with a new found confidence.

Spencer at Key of Rhythm studios is an immensely talented drummer and even better teacher. I've shared the stage with him and my daughter has truly benefited from private lessons with him. Grateful to have someone as reliable, professional and kind in my daughter's corner.

Before I started drum lessons, I knew absolutely nothing about drums. Spencer is an awesome teacher who values his passion. Each lesson is something a little different and a bit challenging, but that gives me a push to practice harder. Spencer is flexible and accommodating to the wants and needs of lessons, but also wants to see you be successful and encourages one to take the next levels of success. I never knew how to read music, and now I can!

Spencer works very well with our son on his weekly drum lessons. He gives him tangible homework each week to practice at home and works professionally, patiently with our sons and each child’s personality. He responds quickly to emails and texts. He sends email and text reminds if you choose to have those. He also sends monthly tuition emails. He is definitely a blessing for our son and valuable.

Spencer is a dedicated, thoughtful, and effective music instructor. He has insight and an easy-going rapport with his students which gets results. Beyond that he is well-organized, punctual, and generous with his time. I highly recommend him.

I couldn’t recommend Spencer enough! Encouraging and attentive to his students’ lives, he listens to each of their goals, analyzes their skills, and tailors lessons to include both! An amazing instructor, highly recommended for anyone looking to learn to play.
