Ben Franklin's Music Club
Grammy Nominated Musician looking to add Soul to the Valley. I'm a motivated, passionate instructor who loves working with students and sharing my love of music. In 2000 I graduated from Full Sail University with a Bachelor of Science and Arts. Since then I have been Composing and Songwriting has taken me around the world and has been the most rewarding experience of my life. I've had the opportunity to work with and play along side legendary artists that I've grown up listening to and admired. I have played on Emmy Award Winning shows like" Girlfriend's" to playing Grammy Award Winning artist "Usher"
My teaching experience dates back to my days working in Los Angeles working as staff composer songwriter, as I began to teach private piano and voice lessons part time 15 years ago I've found that a combination of blues and modern music can go a long way in helping students enjoy and progress their studies in piano, voice and guitar. The most important lesson is to have FUN! I encourage my students to work on their own compositions that promotes creativity. I'm always looking for new students of all ages!
Nothing is more exciting than seeing one my students develop a passion for music! Therefore, it's important that each student progresses at his or her pace. I encourage this by setting realistic goals for my students at each lesson. Acknowledging accomplishments helps fuel a students desire to progress, and makes students eager to learn more. By trying to find out what inspires the student, I can successfully tailor my instruction to their wants and needs. " The slower you go, the faster you'll get there" - John Coltrane
