I am a drummer, mandolinist, guitarist and banjo player here in the New York music scene. As a drummer, I play in various bands throughout the area, with Cal Folger Day, Free Advice and No Lands. These genres range from pop opera to classic rock covers to folk rock. In addition, I teach percussion to elementary students in public schools. I also teach mandolin in group classes at the Irish Arts Center in Manhattan.

If you are interested in learning the drum-set, mandolin, guitar or banjo you've come to the right place. Any style, any genre, whatever you are looking for, I can help you on your way. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Ben is a caring and thoughtful teacher. He helped me out at my studio teaching drum lessons for a 5 year old student and they had a great time working together! 5 Stars *****
