About Benson O.

I'm lead vocalist, lead guitarist & songwriter for a well-known touring rock band with a worldwide fan base. I graduated from New York University with Bachelor's of Music in jazz guitar, and am currently teaching around 50 lessons a week to students ranging in ability from beginner to professional. My versatility, experience and formal training helps me to make the learning experience easy, stress free and fun.

Currently, I play in 3 active bands gigging regularly & produce artists for their own projects. I spent much of the past 15 years touring, writing and recording for my bands and with internationally known artists/celebrities. My songs have been licensed for national/international TV (E!, MTV, VH1, Oxygen, TBS and more) and in video games.

Last year, I signed a major label publishing deal with Fieldhouse Music/BMG played throughout Europe (and taught online lessons while away). Since 2014, I have released 5 singles and two EPs and in early 2017 another two EPs. I am currently endorsed by PRS guitars, Elixir Strings, & Godin Guitars/Bass Guitars.

I teach my clients in my creative and comfortable home teaching studio in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I work with singers, guitarists/bassists, pianists & songwriters/producers/composers in a wide age range, assorted skill levels with a variety of musical goals.

Some of the musical styles I regularly teach: Rock, Indie Rock, Metal, Hard Rock, Alternative, Pop, Punk, Blues, Jazz, Funk, Soul, R&B, Classical.
