Several years ago I had the privilege of having Ben Storll as my bass guitar instructor. I can truly attest to Ben's patience and attention to detail as he helped me lay a solid foundation during our one-on-one weekly training sessions. Thanks to this strong foundation, I was able master the basics of bass guitar and join our church worship team in just 4 months. This training also allowed me to later learn advanced skills even more easily than before. Whether you need to start from scratch, or just brush up on basic guitar skills (bass, acoustic or electric) or you need to build your advanced skills, I highly recommend Ben Storll as your choice of instructor. You will find that his expertise in music theory, his decades of experience on several guitar types, plus his ability to just make learning fun, are all reasons why you're happy you selected Ben as your instructor as you step out to reach that next skill level.

Ben is an amazing teacher he's very patient and seems to know his students on an individual level to see what they're learning type is. It's amazing to me how much I learned in such a small amount of time. I would highly suggest Ben to anyone who is trying to learn to play the bass guitar beginners or individuals with experience.

Ben spent the time I needed to show me the little things that helped me progress to the point of sounding and playing at a level I never thought I could attain. All the while encouraging me to go further. Excellent teacher !

Ben taught be the basic guitar all the way through helping me write my first album. He's a gifted musician and lyricist who has a keen ability to listen and find the true strengths of his students. The gift I recieved through learning to play music isn't something I can put a number to. I am forever thankful to have had such a patient teacher.
