We study baroque, classical, and romantic period music, pop, jazz, blues, music theory, and technique all rolled into one piano lesson as students progress.
Everyone studies piano for different reasons! I'm happy to guide my students along whatever their path may be.

About Benjamin G.

I studied jazz performance & classical music at USM and studied jazz piano with Charlie Banacos.
I have been teaching since I was 15 through the state's Gifted program and qualified for both gifted in fine arts as well as the general requirement.

I have had great success with many students resulting in some deciding on music as a career and going off to college specifically for piano.

I have had experience teaching people with special needs and also.

Currently I teach at Tune Town in Wells, ME. as well as privately in Sanford and Biddeford, ME. and perform in the greater Portland area. I have a hardwired setup for online lessons so the sound quality and alternate camera angles for talking versus demonstration is as good as it get can in our CoVid learning environment.

I can't rate Ben with 5 stars because he has been the only teacher my daughter has had. I would recommend Ben. He is great with her, she is learning and enjoying playing the piano. Kudos to Ben!!!

Plush Music

I'm a pianist and keyboard player/engineer for the band, Plush, a premier wedding band from Portland ME. Along with playing jazz trio setting music, I also play all of the hits you know and love from the 50s to today. If you want to learn classical piano, rock, jazz, funk, or get some insight on how to use your analog synth, use sequencers, or samplers, I can help you.
