Ben had the honor of performing live with Kelly Clarkson during her 2015 U.S. tour - see footage below! See Ben's latest contribution to the TakeLessons blog at http://takelessons.com/blog/vocal-health-for-singers. With a top-rated private events entertainment company (2015 Couples' Choice Award - WeddingWire.com), three full length releases under his belt, a bachelor's degree in music from Northeastern University, and over 15 years experience as a vocalist, Ben currently teaches his craft to children, teens, and adult singers. Ben has received training from a number of teachers in Nashville and Los Angeles - all of whom teach speech level singing, a tried and true method of singing that truly makes vocalizing as easy and speaking. Applying these exercises to each student based on individual needs, Ben works with students to evaluate current skill level, set goals for a customized program, and ensure marked improvement with each lesson. Ben's specialty is coaching pop vocalists. Having shaped his own voice around the styling of Bruno Mars, Kelly Clarkson, Michael Jackson and Adele, Ben's style mixes pop/rock vocals with R&B undertones. In addition to his releases as an artist and appearances in professional productions on the East and West Coasts, Ben is also a YouTube sensation. His videos has received over half a million views in the past two years. voice lesson burbank, voice lesson glendale, singing lesson burbank, singing lessons burbank, singing lessons glendale, burbank, glendale, north hollywood, los angeles, studio city, vocal coach, coach, vocal, singing, lessons, voice, music performance

What an amazing person and teacher Ben is! He's energetic, articulate, and great at demonstrating the physicality of singing for a novice like me. I was overwhelmed at first by all the new information I learned about how to use my muscles to control airflow and volume in my mouth and chest, but Ben quickly made things fun and enjoyable, so it was never too much to handle. I truly have enjoyed working with him, and he's also a great singer and just a really cool guy who made me feel comfortable and at ease. Even though I haven't had time to practice too much (practice is the #1 key to improving!), I've always looked forward to meeting with Ben to take my singing lessons. I'll definitely be working with him more in the future. Thanks for making my introduction to proper singing techniques a really awesome adventure Ben!
