Studying with Ben:
"Prior to starting lessons with Ben, I was a self taught bassist using online videos... The impact of having a live instructor, especially a knowledgeable and compassionate teacher such as Ben, has dramatically increased my confidence, enjoyment of bass and most importantly, my skill level." 

"He takes every opportunity he can to remind me how amazing it is to be playing music.” 

“As a parent, I am impressed with Ben’s professionalism, flexibility, and knowledge.  He finds ways to challenge him and builds on what my son has learned in band class at school.  My son likes Ben because he is attentive, and he likes his teaching style – he has helped with his technique, and says, “Ben has been incredibly helpful and inspirational." I would highly recommend Ben as an instructor!  My son looks forward to his lesson every week!”
