Ben has enjoyed playing and performing guitar since the age of 7. Whether it is playing in one of his bands, an off the cuff jam, or a church service, he walks away with a greater appreciation for music and the incredible effect it has on people’s lives. Seeing the way in which music can touch people’s lives is one of the many reasons Ben loves to teach guitar. Through teaching private lessons for 8 years, he has learned the great importance of the individual student, and how personality, approach, and personal goals directly impact every student’s transition from being a beginner at the instrument to a great musician. Ben has taught professionally at Guitar Center, Music House, and at Calvary University through the Calvary Community School of Arts.
