Hello, Music has always been a part of my life. I've studied music at Dutchess Community College and SUNY New Paltz (Where I completed my Bachelor's Degree) I've been teaching music since 2010. For the past few years I've been very fortunate to travel the world performing music. I have performed in 45 of the U.S. States and 25 different countries across 5 continents.

Ben's bass playing is experienced and versatile, much like the way he teaches. Since he's fluent in multiple genres - from rock to jazz to ska and more - he's able to incorporate a student's specific musical interests into their lesson and tailor the learning especially to them, which always makes his lessons interesting and exciting.

Lessons with Ben have helped me, a guitarist first and foremost, to be able to hang on Bass in a professional capacity. His music philosophy has helped me to approach my own playing with a more focused mind. I highly recommend him as an instructor!
Khalif B. Middletown, NY

About Khalif

I studied classical clarinet at the acclaimed LaGuardia High School for Music and Arts. I traded in my clarinet for a saxophone when I first heard the soulful recording of Grover Washington Jr.'s classic, Mr. Magic. That was the sweetest sax sound I had ever heard and wanted badly to sound like that. Through the pursuit of chasing his melodic and rhythmic style I quickly advanced my skills as a musician. That hard work paid off and earned me a scholarship to the Hartt School of Music, recently renamed the Jackie McLean Institute of Music. I studied directly under the tutelage of the renowned jazz recording artist and received the Jackie McLean Award for excellence. He was actually more than a professor for me. He sort of became a mentor, coach and father-figure. I owe much of my ...

Mary is wonderfully patient and convivial. I'm pretty much a beginner at lessons, and she's found a way to explain to me technique exercises such that each week, my body understands more, and I feel progress. In responding to my singing, she has not been a perfection czar -- she zeroes in on the most important concern at the moment. While she's extremely knowledgeable about and experienced in musical theater, she can help singers with pop as well. I'm enjoying our lessons. She has boosted my confidence while it's quite evident how much I should improve. Her pricing is also reasonable -- no small thing.

I've been studying with Karl for over two years now. I'd taken lessons from two other teachers before, and I learned more in one lesson with Karl, than in three lessons from either of them. He guides students in developing their own styles, and at the same time, teaches them how to play with proper technique. I will be auditioning for county band on snare drum, and Karl had started preparing me for the audition months ago. All in all, anyone who takes lessons from Karl will not be disappointed.

I have studied with Karl for the past 3 years. While studying with him I have become much more versatile in my playing. Karl stresses the importance of practicing and pushes one to achieve their greatest potential. If you are struggling with a certain rudiment or concept he will break it down into simpler terms that are easy to understand and build upon. It has been a great experience studying drum set with Him.
