"Ben’s good at flexing the pace to cover the core of learning music theory and adding complementary practical skills needed for sight reading, whilst making it fun to be singing regularly.  Using technology to do this remotely during lockdown has some drawbacks and working with these I’m finding helps sharpen other key listening skills."

Charles H, UK, April 2020  

"I started taking piano classes with Ben recently and I would recommend him to  beginners like myself.  I can see he's very capable of not only playing but also teaching piano. His studio makes it comfortable for the learner to be learning online as he has two different views on the keyboard."  

Dina K, Saudi Arabia, May 2020


"My piano lessons with Ben are a weekly oasis. As an adult learner, it's so rewarding to have an indulgent hobby just for me. I appreciate how we find the music and character within each piece, and Ben is so cheerful and encouraging - even when I've not done enough practice." 

John E, London, May 2020
