Hi, I am unsure how to proceed with this problem. I believe that I can correctly calculate the frequency of the oscillations for a bar that is not suspended from a spring but I do not know how to take the effect of the spring into account. The answer given by my professor is $$

f=\frac{1}{2\pi}\sqrt{\frac{3\alpha^2k}{M}}$$

f=\frac{1}{2\pi}\sqrt{\frac{3\alpha^2k}{M}}$$
