We've been working with Ben for nearly 3 years and my kids are excited every week to practice and attend lessons! He's innovative, engaged, and endlessly patient, which makes each week an adventure. He is extremely organized and his own talent allows him to use both traditional materials and original adaptations for specific skill levels and different instruments. He truly listens and modifies each individual's curriculum to their ability and interest--it's simply amazing!! I cannot say enough positive things about Ben--I am so thankful to have found him and to witness the growth in my kiddos both as musicians and creative thinkers.
