My name is Ben and I have a passion for developing musicians young and old and opening up the world of music to them. I have recently moved to St. Albans and will have some space in my schedule to teach a small number of keen students.

I have been incredibly fortunate to have studied with an unparalleled list of the world's greatest teachers; including Paul Harris, Yehuda Gilad, Patrick Messina, Karl Leister and Ricardo Morales - and it is my huge ambition to pass this legacy on. I am also highly active as a performer at the highest level.

I have been teaching the clarinet and the piano both privately and for various academies for the last 11 years, with pupils ranging in age from 7 to 70 and from complete beginners to advanced students working at music college level - including a student who went on to win a scholarship at the Royal Academy of Music in London.

My goal as a teacher is to help all of my students realise their potential and learn how to set about reaching it. My advanced understanding of technique, passionate and creative approach to music making and flexible yet structured teaching method combine to make me an exceptional teacher for students of any level. I evolve an individual approach for each of my students as I learn how they can use their individual talents to understand music. I like to stretch my students' abilities as much as possible and all of my students progress very well.

I am a friendly person who's students and their parents feel very comfortable around and I am a Registered Private Teacher for the Incorporated Society of Musicians with an up-to-date enhanced DBS certificate.

If you think that I might be a good fit for yourself, your child, your partner or even your parents - please get in touch and we can arrange a free trial lesson!
