Spencer Bohren's performances are known to inspire audience members in a number of ways. Some take a song in their heart, others a story. Then there are the musicians who are curious about his style and technique. For those people, we have a special opportunity this summer at the Fur Peace Ranch in Pomeroy, Ohio.
The Fur Peace Ranch is not a fantasy camp, but a guitar players oasis within an award winning music community with instruction in various guitar styles, bass guitar, songwriting, mandolin, vocals and more.
Hosted by Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Jorma Kaukonen and his wife Vanessa, the Ranch is nestled in the tranquil setting of the rolling foothills of southeast Ohio. Jorma needs no introduction, having played with Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna. His long tenure on stage and his love for teaching have earned him a lofty position among his contemporaries. In addition to teaching guitar classes, Jorma has been a beacon for attracting an impressive roster of master musicians and teachers, as well as students, who come to the Ranch throughout the year to immerse themselves in what has become a truly unique and magical environment.
The workshop class size is limited to about 10 per class, which allows for a personal, up-close teaching experience. Direct instruction, gourmet food, campfire jams, live concerts and camaraderie come together to make your stay an experience you will remember for a lifetime! Whether you are a seasoned professional or novice, the Ranch has a spot for you on their 119 acres of natural beauty cradled in warmth of superb hospitality. So get online right here, get your guitar, and make your plans to join me June 12 to 15.
And now for a testimonial sent to Spencer following a previous weekend at the Ranch ~
Your patience, generosity, teaching ability, and sensitivity to everyone's ability made this class a truly great learning experience. I am leaving with many new techniques in my toolkit and a reinvigorated passion to practice what you taught me. Can't thank you enough. ~ Mark in Atlanta
I'm glad I waited a few weeks before emailing you and the Fur Peace Gang. I probably would have embarassed myself with a letter of overflowing emotion. To say the least, I had an amazing time at Fur Peace Ranch. They said the first day that "something happens" to people at the ranch and, as a first timer, I initially laughed it off. But what they said was absolutely true. I learned so much about music in the 4 short days there. Not just about playing the guitar, which I learned more than I could put into words. I learned from observation of you and the others in the class about storytelling, voice, history, song structure, musical influences and the passion you need to have to play well. ~ Rob of New York
