About Ben


Bio

I started playing 20+ years ago because of a childhood obsession with rock n' roll and heavy metal. After studying music in college, I progressed to love all types of guitar and my main focus is now classical, acoustic, and finger-style music. I have 3 degrees in guitar performance from FSU, USC and Juilliard. I have 15 years of experience teaching students from ages 5-60 in private lessons, in class and ensemble settings, and teaching guitar at the college level. I teach children often ...

I started playing 20+ years ago because of a childhood obsession with rock n' roll and heavy metal. After studying music in college, I progressed to love all types of guitar and my main focus is now classical, acoustic, and finger-style music.

I have 3 degrees in guitar performance from FSU, USC and Juilliard. I have 15 years of experience teaching students from ages 5-60 in private lessons, in class and ensemble settings, and teaching guitar at the college level.

I teach children often and get along with them famously. Some of my students have been accepted into The Juilliard School, the Curtis Institute of Music, the Aspen Music Festival and School, and Florida State University.

Music History

Music History

Music has been around since the beginning of time and has quite a history! You know what else has quite a history? Me. And the many, many subjects of music history I am qualified to teach. I took lots and lots of history courses during my undergrad degree in music from FSU, my Master's degree from Juilliard, and my Doctoral degree from USC. You wanna know music history? ... Lets talk Bach! Lets talk Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, ancient music, modern music, pop music ... You name it, I'll teach it!

Guitar

I started playing 18 years ago because of a childhood obsession with rock n' roll and heavy metal. After a whole lot of guitar school, I progressed to love all types of guitar and my main focus is now classical, acoustic, and finger-style music. I have 3 degrees in classical guitar performance: Bachelor's from FSU, Master's from Juilliard, and a Doctorate from USC. There are few things in this world I enjoy more than sharing my knowledge of the guit-fiddle with those that want to learn. I have 9 years of experience teaching students from ages 5-60 in private lessons, teaching in class and ensemble settings, and teaching guitar lessons at the college level. I teach a lot of children and get along with them famously. Some of my students have been accepted into The Juilliard School, the Curtis Institute of Music, the Aspen Music Festival and School, and Florida State University.

Music Theory

Music Theory

There are only 7 letters in the musical alphabet, how hard can theory be!? Just kidding, it can pretty tough. Especially if you're starting from scratch. That's why I'm here though! I'll guide you through it and make sure you know letters A-G backwards and forwards, up and down, right and left, and inside out. I have a Bachelor of Music degree from FSU, a Master's degree from Juilliard and a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from USC. During those many years of school, I took theory class after theory class. I'll teach you from basics like time signatures, keys, scales, and chords, to advanced studies of analysis, atonal music and part writing.
