I've been teaching guitar for the last eight years to students of wide ranging skill levels who seek to gain an introductory understanding, or deepen their current understanding of the guitar and basic music theory. Although I prefer to let the personal goals of the student decide the direction of lessons, many of my students seek to learn their favorite contemporary guitar songs. Using these popular songs as jumping off points, I mix in technique and theory exercises to give students a concrete and practical understanding of the material.
About Benjamin E.

Hello aspiring guitarists! My name is Ben. I am a musician hailing from Central Ohio seeking to share my knowledge of the guitar and music theory with anyone and everyone eager to learn. I have taught guitar lessons for the last eight years and I have taken guitar lessons myself for the past 12 years. In 2012 I attended Capital University in Columbus, Ohio on a scholarship for classical guitar. Following my time at Capital I lived in Columbus writing music and playing guitar for several local groups while also teaching private guitar lessons. I currently gig as a guitarist and bass player in several Los Angeles based bands and I recently finished my first solo EP, which I recorded independently from my own home studio. My teaching style is very adaptive and fluid, focusing on the individual needs and goals of my students. From learning your favorite songs on the guitar to mastering your major and minor scales, together we will both strive to become the best guitarist we can be.

Ben is a great teacher. He is always on time, very easy to comunicate with, and he gets along great with my son. He cares about my son’s progress and whether he enjoys his lessons. My son really likes him and is very excited about his lessons, and I can tell by the progress he has made.

Ben is a great partner in pushing you on your journey toward better guitar playing. He knows theory and proper technique for those looking to improve their skills, and yet he also loves the classics that will get new players strumming and hearing sounds they recognize faster than they would learning from a youtube video. His knowledge, patience and kind disposition (not to mention his punctuality) make him a guitar teacher you want to stay with for years!
