Hi there! My name is Benjamin, and I am a young dedicated musician who has a serious bug for teaching private lessons. I grew up in a musical family, and have been playing the dumset since I was four years old. I truly enjoy working one on one with passionate students who wish to improve their craft through concentrated practice. I get satisfaction when I observe improvements in my student's playing, and will do what ever it takes to make sure my students are in comfertable learning environments at all times. I am really looking forward to meeting you!

Benjamin is a really accomplished drummer and professional teacher. Great all levels of music performance development. I was a beginner when I first started taking lessons and now I can play along some jazzy tunes.

Benjamin is amazing. I was totally nervous to take my first drum lesson because I'm so uncoordinated, but as a singer/songwriter I really wanted to have basic knowledge of rhythm section instruments. He was so understanding and patient with me. If I hadn't moved away, I'd still be taking lessons from him!
