Hi! My name is Ben and I am a member of the West Australian Symphony Orchestra.
I have over 10 years of music teaching in Australia and around the world, and have taught all ages. Previously I have taught violin and viola at some of Perth's most prestigious highschools including John XXIII, Iona Presentation College, Trinity College and Aquinas College. I have also lectured at both the University of Western Australia and at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA).
As a teacher my top priority is to ensure that all of my students are given teaching that will foster a lasting love, fascination, and appreciation of music and string playing. I am constantly re-evaluating and adapting my teaching to suit my students needs in order to give them the best possible learning experience.
As a performer I have travelled extensively around Australia and the world giving performances in Switzerland, the UK, Austria, Finland, Germany, Spain, Japan, China, Israel and the UAE. In addition to my teaching and performing pursuits I also arrange and compose. The recordings of my arrangements and compostitions have been streamed over 8 million times.
I'm very happy to give a free trial lesson to anyone interested in learning and I am available to teach at home, and on some occasions to travel to you.
