As a music teacher coach, I have been teaching since 1984, and it is my passion.  Though I do teach in student's homes within a 12 mile radius, I prefer to teach in my studio as I have a very well equiped facility that parents and students appreciate. I'm able to record lesson onto cd, have a full music library, and instruments. I'm also conveniently located for Long Beach and Orange County residents.  My teaching experience includes being on music faculty for the following: Orange Coast College/Coastline College (1999-2010: Music History, Music Appreciation, Voice, Strings, Piano and Music History and Music Therapy for Active Senior Citizens and Film History); California State University (1988-1995: Staff Accompanist, Vocal Coach, and Class Piano Adjunct Faculty) High School and Private School instruction include: Edison High School (Huntington Beach, CA), Grace Lutheran Elementary School (Huntington Beach, CA), Good Shepherd Lutheran (Irvine, CA), Blessed Sacrament Catholic (Westminster, CA). I'm the founder of Spencer Music and Artist Development and have taught privately for since 1984. My school offers ample opportunitites for performances in small recitals, professional debuts, and particpation in internationally recognized theory and performance grades in affiliation with London College of Music (these levels certifcations are recognized in US by High School and Colleges). In addition I prepare students for college entrance exams/auditions, local musical theatre and playhouse audiitons as well as preparing students for the recording industry.   As a composer/arranger, I'm a recording artist, and have arranged for other artists, composed for churches, musical theatre, and recording artists. I can assist my students with their own unique composition style, and show them how to use media programs such as Sibelius, Pro Tools, Musware, Garage Band and Virtual Dj. to expand their talents and get their music noticed. As a Kindermusik specialist I have also many years of experience teaching young beginners piano, voice and violin and I have students as young as 4 years old already exploring Mozart as well as pop repertoire.  As a coach I gear my lessons to the desires and goals of my students. I'm adaptive to student learning styles, and other considerations. I have also taught sight and hearing impaired students.   I'm currently accepting new students and look forward to helping you effortlessly reach your full potential and your specific music goals.

I create a personalized lesson plan for each and every student I teach, because not everyone learns the same way. I incorporate music and exercises from a variety of different books in a way that I think would best suit my student. I will often also have my students learn music that has a part for a second violin, so that I can accompany them.

I am a classical trained musician. I was brought up in Bloomington Indiana, the home of the no.1 rated music school in the States (by the teacher's association). Ever since I was 10, I was involved with the University music life. I had the fortune to study with Janos Starker - perhaps the greatest cello technician in the world! His playing style is comfortable, clean, natural, and free of tension problems. Anyone can learn this great technique and benefit from it. I stress this technique on all of the instruments we teach. I was the best teacher in Los Angeles area for producing the most competition winners of SYMF a few years back (cello).

I'm a Juilliard grad currently receiving my masters degree from USC Thornton School of Music in viola performance. I have been teaching violin and viola for the past 8 years. I have taught all ages and levels, as young as 3 and as old as 40 - beginners to advanced. Along with teaching, I have performed in many of the best halls around the world. Juilliard allowed me to perform in Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall (home of the New York Philharmonic), and Alice Tully Hall (also in Lincoln Center, NYC). Upon moving to LA, I have performed numerous times in Walt Disney Concert Hall, and also had the chance to perform with Elton John for a concert at USC and for a documentary about his new album. I have also gone on tour in Japan with a very prestigious summer festival.

My teaching method is mainly the combination of The Juilliard School of Music and Suzuki Method.  Lessons are specifically designed to fit individual students age, background, strength and personality. In my classes, not only students are taught how to play the violin, they are also taught ear training, sight-reading, music theory, and performance skills; Most importantly, students are also taught self-confidence, discipline, appreciation of the arts, and the pride that comes from a job well done.

...underneath.   Recitativo Secco has a stark and bare sound, accompanied by only minimal instrumentation. These parts of an opera feature a freer rhythmic style (facilitated by the accompaniment only playing sustained chords), and the singer can do as he or she pleases, to a certain extent. Secco formed the backbone of the above-mentioned Peri and Monteverdi operas. Secco recitative was traditionally accompanied by harpsichord, bass viol, and violoncello.   For sake of reference, imagine a Broadway musical (probably Hamilton, these days).

...since they cover a large portion of the vocal range in a short amount of time and include a combination of whole steps and half steps. The easiest way to sing a major scale is to think of the exercise as a ladder and each pitch is a step up or down. To begin, choose one vowel and a starting pitch lower in the vocal range (ideally the same pitch you began on when practicing octaves). Sing an octave up just to locate your highest pitch, and then begin the exercise by singing each of the notes between the two ... Read More

A Case for Early Childhood Music Education

...these very young students who are infants or toddlers are not going to be playing a Bach Sonata or composing rhythm patterns after a series of group musical experiences. However, the very nature of early childhood music, and early childhood in and of itself is play. It is often said that play is children’s work, and this is certainly the case with play in early childhood music education. Initial experiences are just that, the beginning, the foundation, the place from which inspiration and curiosity stems. The earlier our children have the opportunity to be immersed and explore within a rich musical environment, ... Read More
