Great instructor. Focuses on the basics and provides a lot of encouragement which helps. Also, allows student to decide what they'd like to learn and allows you to select the type of music you are most interested in.

Highly recommended!

Benjamin is great. He has the task of teaching a 46 year old longtime electric bass player and a 12 year old electric bass player (father/daughter). He is teaching us both the fundamentals of the upright bass, which is such a different instrument. We look forward to continued lessons with Benjamin.
