Ben B.

Spencerport, NY

About Ben

Hi, I'm Ben B., a professional saxophonist and educator. I have been teaching lessons for ten years, including young students as well as professional musicians, and I find it fun and rewarding. I've also taught music at various colleges, and I've written two saxophone method books, which are used in college teaching. In my own learning, I've studied with the best, including earning a doctorate in music from Eastman School of Music. As a performer, I've worked all over the U.S. and performed with great artists like Chris Potter and Dave Rivello.

I like to make lessons enjoyable for students,
but I also push them to learn and grow. My students learn to understand the music they hear. Not only do they learn to read music, they learn to perform with style and expression. I find that students play their best when they love their sound, so I also focus on technique. Overall, my students learn to use their ears and musicianship to be the best musicians they can be.

Ben is a fantastic teacher, HIGHLY recommended!
He is an accomplished musician himself and is a seasoned professional in the fields of teaching, writing, theory and general promotion of the arts.

He is patient and positive in all things.
He quickly identifies areas of a Student's performance that can be addressed easily and directly for noticeable improvement in a short time. He works with what he has (meaning student skill levels across the spectrum) and is able to propel a student forward and help them advance, while remaining fun and upbeat.

The lesson cost is very reasonable and online lessons seem to work out fine. Be sure to watch his Blog regularly because there is always fresh information there that keeps you thinking and motivated to surge forward in your playing.

You will be glad you took instruction with Ben Britton!

Ben is engaging, knowledgeable and patient, qualities any student should appreciate. I certainly appreciated the attention to detail on developing a good tone with a follow-up check, after the actual "tone" lesson was completed. If one puts the work in the advice from Ben will produce results. Look out Chris Potter!

Ben is a world class musician, and an equally amazing teacher. Studying with him I made some serious progress, and through his methods we would discover lots of uncharted territory. We covered sound production, transcription, ear training, and various topics from his insightful perspective and guidance that I have never explored in the 20 years I have been playing the saxophone. His lessons are the perfect balance of fun, yet very challenging. I noticed huge improvements right away studying with him. I think of the concepts and his unique perspective on how to approach improvisation every time I pick up the horn.
I first sought him out for private lessons after picking up his "Complete Approach to Sound" book and was completely floored when I noticed how significantly my sound changed when we started working on those concepts. We worked through some really fun transcription projects with John Coltrane, and Chris Potter, we worked on some different areas of Time and Bebop language characteristics as well as ear training to hear the changes. Before studying with him I had never transcribed changes- I would look at a lead sheet or fakebook, and in a relatively short time I made some great leaps in my own musicianship and began hearing things (Root Movement, Chord Quality) and experiencing music on a more profound level, and that, to me, is what it is all about.

Rhonda F.

Rochester, NY

About Rhonda

I started taking piano lessons in the first grade from a teacher who graduated from Eastman School of Music. I later won a scholarship to Eastman School of Music as a classical pianist. I have been teaching for 40 years and have performed in Europe and won First Place Piano Competition in New York with 200 of the best pianists in the nation performing. I wanted to quit in the 5th grade but my mother told me I was to young to make that decision for myself and she would not hear of it!
Music is now like the air that I breathe. I cannot live without it! Thanks mom for being smarter than me. Play
ing the piano should be fun at any cost. I let students play many styles of music until they find the style that calls them.
For young children I recommend the parent sit in with the lesson so the parent can help with the practicing at home. They need the extra support when starting piano lessons.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are and should be a fun experience. I teach bits and pieces of college theory to students so they can play the whole keyboard and not just in the middle. Its nice to get students young before they develops bad habits. Piano keys should be played with the fingers and not moving the wrists. Bad habits are hard to break. My children students play like a pro, even if it is only one piece.
Through me, kids learn to love music.
I start lessons at age 4 years old to 99. Please call today to book lessons!

"Learn a little but learn it well" ~Ben Franklin

*** Specialties ***
Traditional Classical and theory. I also get students ready for competitions and scholarships. I will teach any style that will ignite the flame in your child to love music! I designed the pre-school in Philadelphia for 10 years and now teach Wunderkeys to pre-schoolers starting at 3 years old. It is based on math and music and mostly fun and gets students ready for traditional lessons starting at age 6.
I specialize in children. I will be taking new students starting January 4, 2017.

I just began taking lessons from Rhonda after ten years with a former teacher. Ms. Fisher is the absolute finest teacher and she plays a very nice piano herself. I am happy to have found her and I will continue with her as long as God is willing. She is much appreciated.

Fabulous Piano Teacher

I took lessons for 5 years and I play better than I ever dreamed. I enjoyed the lessons and understood the teaching with ease. Expect to have great lessons with your head spinning with tons of information after each lesson from this gifted teacher. Very enjoyable and rewarding experience to say the least. I never again found such a great teacher since taking with Rhonda. I was heartbroken when she moved.

Emily is kind, patient and encouraging with my eight year old daughter. She clearly knows how to teach children and keeps the lessons fun and light hearted while teaching a lot of skills. I am amazed at how much my daughter has learned in only three lessons as well as how quickly Emily was able to build a positive rapport with her. I highly recommend Emily as a teacher.

I just had my first lesson with Brett and he customized it according to my individual needs and circumstance. I am passionate about guitar and folk music but have no musical experience. Bretts plan is to start with the very basics and move forward from there. He was very patient with me and his directions were easy to follow. Though I am a senior I feel like I am 20 years old again and learning a new skill. Thanks Brett

Brett provides a unique blend of expertise and personalization in his teaching. He takes the time to find out what your musical interests and experiences are so that instruction can be targeted at specific goals. His love of music is apparent. I look forward to learning more about music and how to make my guitar sound good from him!
