Speaks English, Spanish
Teaching since 2011
It was really easy to learn songs when being taught by ben, the instructions he gave lives are extrémalo clear and he makes you feel like a pro guitar artist even though you probably been playing your instrument for only a week.
Ben is a great teacher, very patient and easy to work with. I have been taking lessons from his since i started playing and he has helped me overcome many obstacles in my playing. 5 stars!

Hi! I'm Ben and I have taught guitar to individual students and groups of students for over 10 years. I am an advanced-level guitarist who has studied guitar since middle school, and I've played in bands, national tours, and pit orchestras for musicals. I play in a variety of styles, from jazz to metal, from flamenco to classical, from rock to country. Let me work to find a pace and learning style that works for you, and you will be playing songs in no time!
