Spicer's Rock Camp Pro: July 13-17, 2020
Rising 6th-12th Graders
Spicer's Rock Camp Pro (ages 12-18) provides older campers of various ability with an opportunity to receive group and single instruction on their instrument of choice. Campers will also be introduced to different facets of what it takes to be a gigging musician such as: songwriting and arrangement, band management, booking gigs and logo/merch design.
Campers will receive individualized lessons in their instrument of choice and work with other musicians to create their own unique sound. Instruction in singing, song writing, and performing on stage are key components of the camp. Through the competent guidance of skilled staff, lessons on self-esteem, communication and problem-solving skills are woven into each session.
Each week-long session concludes with a full-band performance on a professional stage with professional sound and lighting. Families are encouraged to attend!
Spicer’s Rock Camp PRO will be held in the award-winning Auburn University Telfair Peet Theatre.

Why are you Passionate about Teaching Music?
I have worked with youth for over 40 years as a teacher, a mentor, a prevention specialist, and a counselor. It brings me such pleasure to see my students grow in their knowledge and love of music. There are so many benefits of playing music like working toward goals, building self confidence and improving social, math and reading skills. Music is a lifelong love of mine and I am so lucky to get to share that love with others.
How would you describe the atmosphere/energy in your teaching studio?
I believe that music education happens best in a relaxed, personal environment. I incorporate the type of music and songs that the student enjoys, which makes lessons more fun and productive supposed to be made.
What is something fun about you that you would like people to know?
I spent a semester in Guatemala while I was in graduate school, and loved travelling around central America. The people were wonderful, the history was fascinating, and the food was amazing.
What are your passions outside of teaching?
I enjoy travelling with my wife and family, working with wood, rebuilding old cars and trucks, and listening to live music.
Violin and Viola
Guitar, Bass & Ukulele
Piano & Woodwinds
