“Ben has been giving me private lessons for a while now and it’s been an awesome experience. His humble brilliance makes each lesson fun and worthwhile. He does an excellent job of teasing out where you are as a student and where you aspire to be. I feel like I’m better after each lesson and look forward to continuing this progress. I would recommend him for all ages and genres.” – Laura N.

About Ben

I am a formally trained musician with a degree in Professional Music from Berklee College of Music. I teach all ages and skill levels of drummers, and I also teach guitar and bass for beginner and intermediate students.

During my four years at Berklee, I studied with some of the greats including Tony “Thunder” Smith, Kenwood Dennard, Rod Morgenstein and Marko Djordjevic. I have training and experience playing a wide variety of genres on the drum set in addition to orchestral and marching percussion. I have been studying piano and music theory since I was 5 years old and guitar since I was 12. I compose most of my original music on guitar.

I believe that my educational background and passion for music have given me the skills and depth of knowledge that allows me to help all of my students reach their full musical potential. I always take the student’s goals and reasons for taking lessons to heart. Everyone has different reasons for taking lessons – from being really interested in playing jazz to just wanting to be able to play more proficiently, by oneself or in a band. I often let the student decide how extensive and complicated they want the lessons to be.
