I've been lucky enough to have some kind words said about my teaching and music production on both Google and Facebook. Here are some examples of the feedback I've received from customers.

Parents and Children

"Ben is an absolutely outstanding music teacher of so many instruments! I would highly recommend! Ben has been teaching our son piano for a number of years now, his patience, enthusiasm and genuine love for music makes every lesson brilliant. My son now wants to add learning the guitar! Ben makes learning music and playing an instrument fun." - Sara

"Ben is a very patient teacher and has helped my son develop his technical guitar ability. Highly recommended." Mark

"Ben has been a great teacher for my daughter - both guitar and piano" - Jude

"Ben’s tuition was great. Really helpful and produced some amazing outcomes." Andrew

Ben is an excellent teacher. He teaches my 14 year old son electric guitar and is very good at adjusting his lessons to fit with my son's interests, choosing music that he enjoys playing and also advising him on composition and arranging music.” Stella

"Ben has helped both me and my son immensely and knows all aspects of learning and playing music inside out, couldn’t find anyone better suited to this job." Amy

​"Ben is a fantastic piano teacher. From knowing nothing about the piano to becoming very familiar and confident in both playing and theory sides of the instrument. He’s helped me vastly by teaching me all to do with playing the piano. From writing music to piano techniques, I couldn’t recommend Ben more!" Ramsay

"Ben is an excellent piano teacher for my 10 year old son. His passion for music is clear, and he teaches with just the right amount of focus, positivity and encouragement to keep him engaged and motivated. Best of all, he is open to children learning just for the enjoyment of playing, if they decide not to do grades, and has already got my son playing an arrangement based on his favourite pop song. He is keen to develop the skills of reading music and playing by ear, which is refreshing and great for budding musicians." Claire

"My son transferred to Ben after we moved to LS29 last year. We were initially slightly worried about what will be the impact of changing instructors - but Ben made the transition very smooth. My son is really enjoying his guitar lessons and making good progress." - Charisma

Relaxed and always provides something new for my 7 year old daughter to try. Focuses on a realistic approach to progression with one so young and keeps her motivated. Keeps me involved and patient.” Jaime

"Ben is teaching my 11 year old son piano. He's playing modern pieces, which he's happy to practice, is enjoying the lessons and progressing well. Ben emails the pieces through after each lesson and is responsive to queries etc. I'd recommend him without hesitation." Oliver

Great music teacher - my 8 year old really enjoys her lessons.” Anabella

"My daughter loves her guitar lessons and she’s learnt so much already. Ben is a fantastic teacher!" Beth

"Excellent guitar tutor, my 6 year old daughter really enjoyed it." Jem

​"Great teaching for our 12 year old son." Graham

"Great guitar teacher! Would definitely recommend." Fiona

"My 10 yr old daughter has lessons with Ben through school and she loves them." Simon

"My 12-year-old son had guitar lessons at school but never really enjoyed them. When he moved to Ben, everything changed. Playing guitar is now one of his favourite pastimes. He practises daily without prompting. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Ben." Afra

"Ben is an excellent guitar teacher & very patient with my teenage son. He will teach formal grades aswell as music the pupil likes personally. He has also helped with buying new equipment which if you're not a musical parent is great." Sarah

"Ben has a very positive easy going approach. My son enjoys the lessons and has become really motivated to learn!" -Alex


"Ben is a knowledgeable and patient teacher. I have no hesitation in recommending him." - Jan

"I started learning Ukulele with Ben months ago and he has been an excellent tutor. Taking me through the basics, musical theory, anecdotes, tricks, tips and more! He is always patient, funny and has infectious enthusiasm for music. Can't rate him highly enough!" Edward

Having recently retired and at long last having some spare time to pursue my interests, after a long absence, I've taken up the guitar again. Ben has been teaching me for a couple of months now and I find him excellent. He has extensive experience of teaching guitar (and other instruments), explains everything very clearly, sets exercises suitable to my level, and I really feel I'm making good progress with him. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him to anyone.” Adrian

"I've been learning ukulele with Ben. He's a really nice guy, a calm and thoughtful teacher, and a talented musician. So he can demonstrate what he wants you to do with ease. He's very relaxed and moves at your own pace - absolutely no pressure. As a slow-learning adult this is just the approach I need!" Steve

I started taking guitar lessons from Ben and he has been extremely patient and helpful with my clumsy efforts to play. I recently switched to piano because of an injury to my hand that makes it harder to hold my guitar's neck and now enjoy my piano lessons with Ben just as much as the guitar. With Ben's guidance, I'm looking forward to building on what I've already learned. He makes me want to improve and I have no hesitation in recommending Ben as a music teacher, no matter what age you are. He tailors lessons to each individual rather than a "one size fits all" approach.” Debra

"Can't recommend Ben enough - he's a wonderful piano teacher." - Amy

Having a great time with Ben who understands exactly what I need and how to keep me motivated. learning many different styles and techniques. intended only to do a few lessons, ending up with a longer term structured learning programme. I highly recommend Ben.” Louis

Ben is a great teacher, he understands his pupils well and takes time to make sure the lessons are engaging. My son thoroughly enjoys his lessons. Highly recommended.” Lee

"I was taught guitar by Ben, he is an excellent teacher and and extremely knowledgeable about his subject. Taking up playing at 57 I was one on Ben's older students. He was extremely patient with me and I learnt a lot from him." Alan

"Ben is an amazing teacher and musician. I am an adult learner and wanted to take up the guitar again. Ben taught me for the last 3 years and we have done classical, pop, jazz, bossa nova, rock and many more.He is very attentive, naturally gifted, keeps you focused, let’s you play and discover and has a wealth of knowledge. I would highly recommend him for children and adults!" Haroula

"Ben is a great music teacher. He taught my ukulele group for a year until, unfortunately for us, he moved back up to Yorkshire. The music he gave us to play was always interesting and pitched just right for our mixed abilities. He helped us to develop individually and as a group. Our sessions were always good fun." Janet

"Ben teaches my 12yr old boy Electric guitar and my 10yr old boy Bass guitar, both beginners. They really enjoy their lessons and are always keen to play what they are learning. Ben is patient and encouraging and chooses music that they like. They seem to be progressing well and we would all recommend Ben." Sally

"Ben is a brilliant tutor. I have never played an instrument, but Ben is really patient and figured out a way to teach ukulele to a music rookie." Christian

"I attended a series of Ben's Ukulele evening classes in Leeds a couple of years ago, and enjoyed his engaging and inclusive guidance and tuition, which he made fun while also happy to answer questions and share his wide range of musical experience and know-how" Andy

"I looked forward to Ukulele lessons each week with Ben. Our group members benefitted from his excellent teaching. I am happy to recommend him." Lee

"Ben taught our group of about a dozen adult improvers and we learned a lot from him and had a lot of fun. He structured our lessons to get us strumming and picking together for a fuller sound. We also had a series of lessons on blues techniques, riffs, turnarounds etc. He also covered some music theory as most of us are totally lacking in this area. Ben is a very good musician and an interesting and thoughtful teacher. My partner and I thoroughly recommend him." Helen

"Very patient and knowledgeable teacher." Garry

"Ben has engineered and produced both my solo albums, and even added a bit of guitar and piano.

I've been delighted with the results and totally recommend his services." - Pete (Sheffield)

"Ben offers an exceptional service at a really reasonable price, and I have been really pleased with the results of both projects I have worked with them on.

I couldn't recommend higher." - Ed (Leeds)
