About

I help kids to fall in love with music! I do this through fun and engaging Zoom lessons where we use songs the student loves to explore music fundamentals. I adapt my lesson plans to be just the right level of challenge for the individual.

Although I'm very busy with teaching, I am currently able to accept a few more virtual students on Weekday mornings and early afternoon. I am in EST (Eastern Time, USA), but I teach students all over the world. I am excellent at providing a well-rounded music education to kids in homeschool or groups in homeschool pods. (Pricing varies by size of group, and I can create a quote based on your needs).

Here are some specific time ranges by time zone:

EST: Weekdays: 9AM to 1 PM

Central time: Weekdays 8 AM - 12 PM

Mountain Time: Weekdays 7 AM to 11 AM

PST: 6 AM to 10 AM

GMT: 2 PM to 6 PM

GMT+1 3 PM to 7 PM

I have been teaching students for over 15 years, and have been full-time for the past 5. I can help kids master the guitar (electric, acoustic, classical), Ukulele, and Loog guitar (3-string guitar). Many of my students also choose a secondary instrument, and I can get them to an intermediate level on piano, drums, bass, violin, harmonica, flute, and voice.

Music is personal for everyone, and I love nurturing (or discovering) whatever musical passion a student has, whether it is building the confidence to perform at a talent show, writing their own songs, learning to sing as they play, or mastering the songs of their favorite artists.

If you are looking for lessons like what I describe, I'd love to hear more about your student and their goals and interests!

My experience:

-Music Major at Kutztown University, 2006-2008

-Received private instruction in guitar, piano, drums, oboe, bassoon, melophone and voice

-Teaching private music lessons since 2009

-Studied Stage Performance for Musicians with Tom Jackson, Nashville, 2009

-Managed stage and live sound for music festivals of over 2,000 attendees

-Produced recordings for orchestras, rock bands, songwriters, and choirs

    Ben is a great teacher - his music selection is based on kids interests and what they like. He’s patient and does a great job on zoom with virtual lessons!! My son loves to play the guitar and loves his Zoom lessons with Ben each week! He’s always got something new to share and teach!

    Weve been working with Ben for nearly 3 years and my kids are excited every week to practice and attend lessons! Hes 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 individuals curriculum to their ability and interest--its 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.
