About Benjamin

I am 25 years old, a San Diego native displaced on the East Coast for the past 13 years who is enjoying a career as a performer, writer, teacher, and student of music. Music is my world.

I have a masters degree in Studio Jazz Writing from the Frost School of Music in the University of Miami and bachelors degree in Jazz Performance from Temple University. My main instrument is bass but I have years of performance and teaching experience on piano and guitar as well. I have been teaching music in classes, camps, and privately for over 6 years. Two of those years were as an employee with TakeLessons. During that time I taught over 100 different students and averaged about 40 private students a week.

Amazing Guitar Teacher

I've had many guitar teachers for my son, who is 11 and has been playing since he was 8. Most of our previous lessons were private in-person lessons, so I was a little hesitant about Skype lessons. However, I can honestly say Ben is the best teacher my son has ever had. He is reliable, professional and respectful. Ben has a way of explaining difficult concepts so they are easily grasped. He is wonderful at catering lessons to the appropriate skill level so the student can advance as quickly as his capacity allows. Ben's enthusiasm for music is infectious. I'm very impressed and would highly recommend Ben as a teacher.

About Matthew

I've been studying the drums for 26 years, and am still very passionate about learning and teaching. I've toured in over 12 countries, been signed, played with Grammy nominated artists, and have performed with just about any type of ensemble you can imagine from cool electronic acts to large classical ensembles to swinging big bands. I'm married and live in Philadelphia. I enjoy cooking, movies, books, art, working out and learning about music!

*** Lesson Details ***
I have 40+ drum books in my collection, but you will more often find me transcribing songs for my students on the spot or recording a drum part on your phone so you can play along with me in between lessons. My modo is "music first," so all lessons develop naturally from a song or style that ...

Coming from a beginner-level guitar player who has previously taken guitar courses, Andrew's definitely extremely talented and, equally importantly, very insightful and understanding when it comes to teaching. He is patient, smart, draws good examples for understanding concepts, and is enjoyable to play alongside with.

andrew is a great teacher

i've been taking bass lessons from andrew for several years and have nothing but great things to say about his teaching abilities. he is organized yet flexible, allowing you to take the lessons the direction you want to take it. he can really connect to the way you think and channel that to advance your skills. my only complaint i don't see him enough, but that's my fault.

Great Instructor

Andrew went above and beyond what I ever expected. He did a great job of covering rudiments and technical aspects, while simultaneously focusing on the "art" of bass playing. He was very aware of my skill level and responsive to my needs as a student. I highly recommend him for beginners and imagine that he would be great for more skilled students as well

About Nero

I have been teaching music for 16 years. I grew up on the 2nd floor of my father's music store in Central PA and have been around music my whole life. I earned a bachelor’s degree in Music Performance from the University of the Arts where I studied jazz guitar with Pat Martino, Jimmy Bruno, Steve Giordano, and Tom Giacabetti. I was one of the original teachers during the formative years at the Paul Green School of Rock Music where I later went on to be the Music Director of the Philadelphia and Downingtown Schools. During that time, I helped many students prepare and get accepted to music schools, ran and developed music summer camps, and organized concerts where the students performed the music of Led Zeppelin, the Beatles, and many more of rock's finest band at every ...

Mandolin Lessons

I recently started playing mandolin on my own - and decided to take lessons to make sure that my technique was correct. -- All I can say is that Nero is the best music teacher I have ever had - not to mention, a gifted musician. He makes learning fun, and his approach and patience allows you to easily pick up new techniques and skills. I hope to take lessons with Nero for a long time!!!!

My first Flamenco Guitar lesson

Had my first lesson with Nero. Nero was very patient and the lesson progressed at a comfortable pace. He didn't bombard me with too much information yet identified learning moments at relevant times during the session that increased the value of our time. I played clarinet for about 6 years over 17 years ago and haven't touched a musical instrument since so I feel like a beginner... He was sensitive to my inexperience and led with the session with a relaxing demeanor.
