My name is Ben, and I cant wait to start playing guitar with you. I have been playing since age 14, and am a recent college graduate. Most of professional experience is as a jazz guitarist, but I have spent a good part of my career playing rock, funk, blues, and folk. Whatever your style and experience is, I would love to work with you to make you a better guitarist and musician. My number one goal is to inspire the student by giving them tools to start having fun in the practice room as soon as possible.

Benjamin was a great teacher. From the very first lesson I was learning chords and practical skills that went along with guitar playing. I enjoyed how patient he was with me as well. Benjamin has a lot of experience in so many different styles which kept the lesson very interesting. Highly recommend taking lessons with Benjamin!

Ben is a great teacher. This is my first time learning how to play the guitar and Ben has been great -- he is patient and very knowledgeable. I feel I'm making great progress, the lessons are no-pressure, which makes the whole process more enjoyable.

Hey Ben, Thanks for getting me over my fear of learning something new. Guitar has always interested me but I didn't think I could do it. You've shown me I can! You've been an inspiration.
