*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are scheduled in 30, 45, or 60 minute sessions.
30 Minutes: beginners or students in elementary school
45 Minutes: some experience or students in middle/high school
60 Minutes: extensive experience or advanced students
All lessons must be booked per person (i.e. if you have two students who want to take lessons with me, they each must be signed up for a separate lesson slot).
All lessons are to be in the students' home or other pre-determined location set by the student.
Students must provide their own instruments. I can assist you in choosing an appropriate instrument for the student through local vendors.
All method books must also be purchased upon discussion with the instructor within the first two weeks of lessons. As the student progresses, additional method books of literature will need to be purchased at the instructor's discretion.
I hope to encourage and build you up in whatever challenge we decide to tackle. Whether you are starting out for the first time or you have been playing for a while, I'm here to push you, to see you grow and to learn things as well. I enjoy working with both children and young adults. My students say that I'm fun, that I run lessons in an exciting manner, and that I love showing others what it is to make music.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music from Gordon College (Wenham, MA) and have a varied cohort of students ranging in ages. I teach both young musicians just starting out and the not so young, helping them achieve personal goals on a particular instrument. In my other life, I serve as a Firefighter and a Communications Officer in the Town of Ipswich.

Putting yourself out there with something new like this, and leaving yourself vulnerable are things that are difficult for him right now.
Ben has been so professional, caring, and patient with Kyle. I believe he will help him find the passion in this beautiful instrument, and the confidence to express his feelings and enjoy the art of music.
Thank you Ben!!

My son has been taking lessons from Ben now for a little over a month. I cannot say enough about the professionalism and reliability of Ben. I figured it would take a lot to keep a 16 year old boy who is a beginner totally interested in piano but Ben has managed to do just that. My son actually looks forward to his weekly lessons and practices without hesitation and I can only attribute that to the teaching techniques of Ben. If anyone is contemplating on choosing Ben for their or their child's instructor, hesitate no further. He is one of the best.

Ben is the best teacher. He is very calm and great with both children and older students. With the younger, his patience makes them want to learn while still pushing them to practice. With the more experienced, he always has more material to offer and possesses an eagerness that shines through his students. Ben's passion for music is obvious through his playing and teaching. I could not recommend him enough!
