I can help you learn the beginning concepts of music theory. As a student musician myself, I completely understand the importance of having those basic skills down. Understanding theory is a key skill in being a great musician because it teaches adjustment and tonal foundations. For example, knowing how many sharps are in the key of D Major will save you a lot of time when you have to sight-read or analyze your next piece.

Lessons:
***KEYBOARD on deck for all lessons*** I find that visual tools help with understanding the theory a little bit better.

I offer 30, 45, and 60-minute sessions. It all depends on your needs.

For lessons at my home or in the community center, parents/guardians are welcome to sit in.

Adult beginners are also welcome!

Drawing from a wide array of performance and teaching experiences, I tailor unique lessons to Viola and Violin students of all kinds who are ready to take their playing to the next level. I hold all of my students to a high level of achievement, while integrating their personal goals into my lessons. Some of my students have described lessons with me as "whacky and fun." Students learn basic skills, advanced techniques, music theory, music history, among other subjects to help inform effective and enjoyable performances. What do you want to achieve? Let me know and let's work together to get there!

I have been playing clarinet for twelve years and have taught students of all ages and levels. In my lessons we will work on basic fundamental techniques (breathing, technique, etc) while also learning pieces that you can bring home and play for your family. I believe playing the clarinet is something that gives people the ability to increase their creativity level, confidence, and individual expression which is important to our daily lives. I want my students to be able to grow as individuals and learn to have fun with music through playing the clarinet!

I’m a French music producer based in the U.S. I have been producing for 15 years and am passionate about sharing my experience.

There are plenty of courses and teacher online.I believe that my approach is really based on the student. I do not have a generic program in motion. Prior to our first lesson we would set up a phone call so i can have an overview of your backgrounds, your skills and your goals.

Music producing can be very frustrating if you dont find your own system and routine.

After our phone call i will be able to establish a plan to teach you exactly what you need to get you where you want, filtering out everything you wont need so can you see progress and results faster.

The priority is to master the tools you are gonna need to make music and not to get lost in the technical aspect of making music.

Extremely helpful! We broke down a piece of music I had for class that I was having some trouble with and by the end of the hour I was much more comfortable playing it! What I really liked is that she pointed out things I would have not noticed that made the rhythms easier to understand. Great advice on HOW to practice and how to best approach a difficult part in your music.

"I'm a 31 year old singer in a Indie Rock band called Readen Roark. I have had little to no training prior to practicing with Benjamin. I was looking for someone to help me find my voice and help me figure out how to actually sing. After many years of trying it on my own and listening to vocal dvds, I bit the bulllet and swallowed a little bit of my pride and found Benjamin through takelessons.com. I immediately found results as far as realizing how I WAS singing isn't suppose to be how I AM to sing. When you sing, the feeling should be somewhat easy. Ben is helping me find that spot and easiness. I am eager to see my improvement as time moves on. Not to mention Ben makes the lesson enjoyable and easy going. It is something I look forward to and hope to continue for a long time to come. I am even tempted to bring him some of my band embers and work with the band as a whole. When the next album is ready for vocals, I will definitely try to have him there. Highly recommended."
