Guitar teacher of over 12 years, ages 8 and up from rock, pop, blues, jazz and heavy metal. Both 6 and 7 string guitar. Specialising in beginners and modal theory/improvisation. ATAR students welcome.

Methodology

Every student is different and as such each students curriculum is catered towards their learning style. I prefer to work with the student to define certain short term and long term goals. From here I develop a syllabus to enable us to work together to achieve those goals.

Background

I have been teaching for over 12 years while also being a touring musician. I studied an Advanced Diploma of Applied Music and hold a Certificate 3 in Music Business. Once I completed studies I have toured the country various times with groups gaining further real world knowledge to aid in teaching music and what is required in real life as a musician. Between touring I have taught privately and also In music schools around the eastern suburbs and bayside area of Victoria. This has also taught me the importance of how much enjoyment of playing, plays a role in all students from beginners to advanced, from hobbyists to career musicians. I also have a current working with children check.

I also provide performance coaching, music release strategy and marketing lectures, songwriting seminars and guitar maintenance courses.

Ben is as passionate about his students as he is about his music. He’s guaranteed to go above and beyond expectations.

Over the years I found Ben to be an outstanding person to live and/or work with.

His kind and nurturing personality comes through as a teacher. He cares immensely for the person - not only as students but takes a interest in what makes tick outside his tutelage.

Been with Ben for years. Great teacher who is easy to get along with and has an amazing grasp of musical knowledge and theory. Would highly recommend for anyone beginner to advanced looking to take their guitar playing to that next level!
