Hi, my name is Ben and I am originally from Pittsburgh PA. I also go by Jack. I have been a student of music for 15 years. My musical influences include Rock, folk/country, classical, ska, punk, metal, Christian contemporary and I also enjoy just plain old acoustic. In my lessons, you can expect to learn the basic skeleton of playing guitar. Some music theory.The fundamentals come first. After that we leave it up to you to be creative. Cause that's what music is all about. Basic skills and fundamentals in combination with creativity and talent. Your goals and what you want to accomplish are extremely important. I don't want to teach you a style that you don't want to play. although being diverse is very important. I teach acoustic or electric. I have toured with old ska/punk and metal bands growing up. But now I keep it more relaxed by playing at my church and just doing solo singer/songwriting on the acoustic. I can play almost any genre. I can teach Beginner to intermediate. I also record, produce, and master music from my home. So we can have a little fun and record stuff if you'd like that too. Hope to meet you soon!

my father was a very talented musician. He was the one who got me started. i took professional lessons through out life and also everyone learns a little on their own through experience and trial and error. plus i learned from touring and playing along with many other talented musicians. the learning never stops.
