Cameron Spencer is a 24 year old keys player specialising in Rock, Blues, R&B, Funk and Soul music. He started playing the keys aged just 8 and has been passionate about music ever since. After working through the ABRSM Classical and Jazz grades, he began studying Music and Music Tech A levels at college. From 2014 to 2016, he was tutored by highly regarded industry professionals such as Brian Henry (Soul II Soul, Mica Paris) and Frank Tontoh (Amy Winehouse, George Michael) at the Academy of Contemporary Music in Guildford, where he achieved a 2:1 in Professional Music Performance.
Cameron has several years’ experience providing Piano lessons to people of all ages and abilities, in person, in schools and online. He has produced many of his own documents to aid students’ learning and has a methodical but fun approach to teaching. With a diverse knowledge of subjects such as theory, culture/history and music technology, Cameron aims to give students a broad overview of all things music related.
Most of 2019 was spent working for Princess Cruises with party band 'The Sound'. In between contracts, he depped for many function bands, laid down keys in various studio sessions for artists inc. DD Allen and played with exciting original bands/artists such as The Maitree Express (tour of Andorra), while also finding the time to collaborate with up-and-coming producers like Sudhan Gurung.
In addition to playing live, Cameron also creates and mixes his own music and has been using software such as Logic Pro X and MuseScore for several years. He is constantly learning new production techniques and writing new ideas.
Cameron has also been busy organising events such as Butleigh Village Free Arts In The Park 2017 and the Maasai Massive 2018. He is part of a non-profit organisation based in Glastonbury called the Pegasus Collective, where the aim is to provide funding for community projects related to music, art, poetry, healing, music and education.
