My daughter has had an excellent year playing the recorder at grade 4 level. Ben is focused, patient, enthusiastic, encouraging and motivational in his teaching style. He has been professional and reliable throughout. My daughter has thoroughly enjoyed her lessons.

Ben taught my son drums. He was patient and encouraging and made his lessons fun. My son enjoyed learning with Ben and always looked forward to his lessons with him. Ben is an excellent musician who has a degree in music and understands the theory as well as being a talented performer. He was not only a great drum teacher but a role model, who boosted my sons confidence and encouraged him in his drumming. Unfortunately Ben moved away otherwise he'd still be teaching my son; but he laid the foundation on which my son has progressed and he is now preparing for his grade 5

I have known Ben for many years as we attend the same church as his family. For 2 years, between the ages of 9 and 11, Ben taught my son drums,. He was an excellent teacher – thorough, diligent and encouraging. He was able to explain things clearly and carefully, and my son made very good progress under his tutelage. Ben has a calm and polite manner; he is quietly spoken, but confident and able to exert challenge and his own opinion where necessary. My son thoroughly enjoyed his lessons with Ben, as Ben took an interest in his life apart from the lessons and was able to engage in conversation about Josh’s other interests. His thoughtful card to Josh when he left for University demonstrated that Ben has a naturally pastoral heart. I believe he has the necessary skills to make a wonderful addition to your team.

Thank you for being such a good drum teacher for my youngest son over the last couple of years. I really appreciate that you arrived punctually at our house every week, with enthusiasm and a clear plan for each lesson. My son began at age 10, with no prior knowledge of drumming and you taught him some basic techniques, before introducing music theory and then progressing on to other music pieces. The lessons were fun and covered a range of styles and rhythms. I would be happy to recommend you to other students and wish you well in your future career.
