Spencer Bowman believes in the power of a positive drumming community. Helping to grow a strong brotherhood of forward-thinking drummers is a goal at the top of his list. He has shared the stage and the studio with many of BC's most talented musicians, as well as touring nationally with the progressive metal band The Body Politic. Many teachers have helped shape Spencer as a drummer, including Mike Johnston, Matt Halpern, and Benny Greb.

Spencer spent two years studying with Jesse Cahill at Vancouver Island University. He holds a diploma in jazz studies, garnered under the tutorage of some of Canada's most renowned jazz musicians. Teaching his first drum lesson at thirteen, Spencer continued teaching privately throughout his early teenage years. He currently teaches in Nanaimo, BC at several music schools. Spencer's goal is to inspire his students, as well as demystify the mechanics of drumming.
