About Benjamin N.

I have been teaching music for the past 20 years, I offer guitar, bass, piano and voice lessons. I am a professional musician who performs live on a regular basis under the stage name of Pistol Pete. I have toured in Japan, Poland and Italy. Music is more than a hobby. For me, it is my passion. I have had three students that continued their studies at Berklee College after taking lessons from me. Whether you are a beginning musician or in an advanced stage of learning, I can customize a lesson plan that will meet your needs. Music should always be a joyful experience, whether you are listening to it or learning to play it. I have won many guitar competitions including a Jimi Hendrix Electric Guitar Competition sponsored by the Jimi Hendrix Foundation, Chicago Guitar Slinger competition, and an International Blues competition. I am blessed to be able to do what I love, every day.
