Ben offers a unique perspective in mastering your guitar playing skills, both as an accomplished guitarist and a passionate educator.
Ben is a singer/songwriter & guitarist who has been playing the guitar for more than 22 years.
Hailing from a musically extended family, he began his music education when he was just 5 years of age with formal piano lessons with his Grandmother who was a proficient pianist. After years of music instruction, he became extremely passionate about learning the guitar after hearing his very first influence, Bob Dylan.
Following many years of both formal and informal instruction, Ben began forming bands throughout the Sunshine Coast and Bundaberg regions as lead guitarist and vocalist.
Ben has a strong knowledge of music theory, harmony, rythym and lead guitar, bass guitar and is extremely skilled at transcribing solos and improvisation. He loves to write his own songs as a solo artist with an acoustic, soulful flavour as well as perform with a rock/alternative essence in both his original and cover bands.
Ben eats and breathes music and has done so his entire life.
When asked what he most enjoys about teaching the guitar, his response was;
“I get a massive kick out of seeing my students learn something new in my lessons. I love being able to help people of all ages find their inner passion of music and guide them to express themselves through songwriting and guitar instrumentals. I am just so passionate about being able to share what I love to do – Create Music”
