    We have been with Ben for Ukelele lessons for almost a year, in person and virtual. He has worked with my 5-6 year old once a week and has displayed a lot of patience and made good progress in teaching my son the fundamentals while also dealing with a young child’s fleeting attention span. It’s hard to work with that age group and try to teach them meaningful lessons. My son likes playing the Ukelele and being creative - and Ben really nurtures and goes along with that while still making sure his chords and finger placement are correct. Ben is great! Highly recommended

    Ben was patient and relatable during our lessons. He found an incredible balance between letting me go at my own pace, while also challenging me to get better each day. His teaching style makes you really appreciate and understand music, not just notes on a page.

    Old-timer looking to learn a new skill and Ben has been an ideal teacher. He works with the student to find music that appeals and, with his experience, is able to quickly demonstrate the techniques needed to pick up various songs and techniques. Even for songs with which he is not immediately familiar, watching his approach as he quickly works through the idiosyncrasies of the particular piece of music provides an invaluable tutorial into the way to learn a new piece of music. I have greatly appreciated working with Ben to learn the guitar.

    Ben is an excellent teacher. He is able to quickly understand how a song is structured, pick out the difficult sections, and then show you how to play it.

    I work with each student to help them achieve their individual goals in which ever way they seem to learn best!  We can usually figure this out in the first lesson.
