The Great Burro Studios is located in Sebastopol, California. We specialize in music instruction, performance, experience, and awareness.
Hello Parents and Rockers!
Now that some restrictions have been lifted, we wanted to keep you updated on what we're doing at The Great Burro Studios.
Since March, we have continued to offer private lessons online with all of our instructors. If you are looking for instruction while supporting local teachers and musicians, now is a great time to sign up for music lessons. We offer weekly or bi-weekly private lessons via zoom. We offer instruction for piano, song-writing, drums, bass guitar, acoustic guitar, ukulele , and voice.
While we are saddened by this pandemic, we believe in keeping our Burro Families safe and have cancelled all camps for Summer 2020. As working musicians, we know how difficult it is to play music over the internet - we need IRL beats and solos! Anyone who has tried to sing "happy birthday" as group via zoom knows the challenges! We still have information about our camps online. If you're new, you may want to send us an email to receive registration information for Summer 2021. We miss ROCK BAND CAMP like crazy! Especially the long lists of potential band names, photo shoots + poster concepts, and of course our seeing your faces.

The Great Burro Studios and JTL productions team is a extraordinary chance for anyone who would like to record that long awaited album, EP, demo, or any musical composition to do so in a very vibe-oriented and economically viable studio setting.
The studio's founder and primary music instructor, Spencer Burrows, is a serious advocate for the positive effects of music in people's lives. With a music education from Sonoma State University and certificate from Berklee College of Music in Boston, his career as a professional performer has taken him around the world and has made his own life richer and more exciting than he ever imagined. His gift as a vocal-instrumentalist has put him onstage with many known well-known artists and his bands performed with internationally recognized bands at festivals and concerts. His music career with Frobeck (2005-2018) and The Big Fit (2019) received multiple nominations, winning Best R&B Band from the Bohemian in 2019 and Best Rock Band with Frobeck in 2008. Spencer Burrows is a prolific song-writer and has co-produced, with his band-partner Kris Dilbeck, many albums for his band Frobeck (2005-2018) and in 2019 released a 14 track album with newly-named duo, Burrows and Dilbeck. His teaching career has given him the tremendous opportunity to guide group music and movement classes with kids from 6 months old and up. In his teachings, Spencer focuses on each student as their own artist, often encouraging song-writing and performing. His students have been accepted as music majors to Berklee, Musicians Institute, and UCLA just to name a few, but all, no matter their post high-school education and path, have reflected on their positive experience at The Great Burro Studios. His teaching covers the basic structure of music-theory, ear training, sight-reading, rhythm, pitch and improvisation - but also implements his philosophies of "honor, respect, communication, dedication, and FUN!"
