*** Classroom Textbooks ***
If the student uses a textbook and/or study material on subject, prepare those in advance of the lesson to facilitate fluid transition between subject matter and material.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Books and study material. The student should have a pencil and pad for any notes as well as the instrument of choice for the proper lesson.

*** Specialties ***
I am a big advocate towards playing the instruments together that way it helps to solidify my knowledge as well as the students. Also if it is a theory lesson than have the instrument right there for application.

Benjamin is awesome! He takes the time to listen to any concerns my son has and is truly genuine. Matthew can't wait to meet with him every week. The confidence that Matthew now has, has been noticed not only by his school band teacher but his fellow band members have given him compliments as well. I highly recommend Benjamin to anyone who is looking for an instructor that meets there child where they are at skill level and encourages with his magnetic personality, while showing immediate results.

We are making outstanding progress. Benjamin has an excellent rapport with his students. He makes each lesson relevant to the students interest even when teaching the basics. Benjamin brings a very positive outlook and attitude to the class. We’re enjoying the lessons very much!
