    My son looks forward to every lesson with Ben! He’s encouraging, patient, and relates well with my teenager. A big plus is his flexibility in scheduling lessons to accommodate our busy schedule. Highly recommend!

    I really liked the fact that Ben first showed up :)
    and best of all I liked that when I told him I had epilepsy and that it was hard to remember all the words to a song, he took time to help me slowly at my pace which is what I really needed and what I was able to find in Ben as my voice teacher.

    Ben meets his student where they are and adds value each lesson. He is on the path with you. For me, Ben provides a safe place to learn more about music, to improve my guitar skills, and to refine the art of songwriting. His own commitment to the craft of songwriting and performance is inspiring - you will be inspired working with Ben!
