"American Treasure" in music inspires lifelong learners through CCE

Tuesday, December 5, 2017

Not every student at SPSCC is seeking a degree.  Many students, more than 14,500 since 2015, are adults with careers who turn to Corporate & Continuing Education (CCE) for non-credit interest or professional development classes. 

This fall, a group of lifelong learners interested in songwriting found themselves learning from a local musician who was recently described as an "American Treasure" by Northwest Music Scene: Andy Landers.  Andy has spent two decades exploring and developing the Americana Folk genre and has eleven records to his name.  And he's teaching at SPSCC, again, this winter.

The feedback from Andy's songwriting class was exceptional:  

“Andy’s class helped me better understand my own songwriting process and helped equip me with the tools to improve.”

“Andrew has so much knowledge and was so great to share with us!”

“The discussions in this class were fun and I liked how Andy adapted the teaching to different skills.” 

Andy's next class—How to Win in the Music Business—starts on Feb. 5, 2018, and is set to be as fun as he is.  Here's how Andy describes himself on his website

Andrew lives in rainy Olympia WA with 6 amazing kids, 1 pretty wife and a 72 VW Bus. He digs the St. Louis Cardinals and believes the Yankees suck! He's fully convinced that Barney “the purple messiah” is the reason dinosaurs went instinct and has a codependent relationship with his 3 acoustic guitars named CASH, Dylan, and Guthrie.

VW Bus graphicCan't wait until February to get some Andy Landers in your life?  Check him out live at Sandstone Distillery on Saturday, Dec. 16.
