Well versed in a variety of styles: rock, jazz, blues, folk, funk, R&B, gospel and country my teaching approach is to focus on the music that the student loves most and work around that. I believe that many people give up playing an instrument simply because they aren’t inspired enough, so my goal is to instil a love of music whatever that means for each student.
Lessons will be fun and playful and will have you jamming in the first hour!

Since studying Jazz Guitar at the Royal Academy of Music, I have been a published songwriter and professional musician. Over the past 15 years I have released multiple albums and toured worldwide as a bandleader and session musician.
For the past six years, I have been co-lead singer, songwriter and lead guitarist with my own band. Through the release of two albums we have built up a significant following both here and abroad, have toured extensively throughout the UK, Europe and the USA, and amassed over 30 million streams on Spotify.
I also have fifteen years of experience as a session guitarist and have played the Other Stage at Glastonbury, supported Blur in Hyde Park, and played on Jools Holland.
I am a highly experienced guitar and piano tutor working with students of all ages and abilities ranging from beginner to professional level.
I teach guitar and piano at schools and performing arts colleges around London and am currently Guitar tutor at the Latymer Music Centre.
Perfect! Ben is a brilliant guitar tutor who’s also a successful musician.
You wouldn't have guessed it because he’s humble, patient, and non-judgemental. The lessons are tailored to suit my needs and also fun and engaging. I have recently picked the guitar after a long break from my music career and already made massive progress!
Our first lesson went great. Hadar is an intuitive, and natural musician, and we will work to strengthen by working on harmony, and different guitar styles.
Ben tutored my 12 yr son for last year and I found him listening very good and giving good advise. He would encourage my son to always practice at home and would show him how the song is played. I believe Ben helped my son continue to play guitar when he lost his first teache whom he been with for 3 yrs. I would not hesitate to have Ben as guitar tutor for my son. Thank you Ben!!
For a professional tutor, Ben's musical experience is unparalleled. Not only is he educated at the highest level --having attended the Royal Academy he is part of a select few musicians worldwide to reach this technical level -- he has also achieved a great deal professionally: he's played every sought after venue a musician would want to: Hyde Park, the main stage at Glastonbury, Abbey Road etc. Then there's the albums he's released. Evidently, as a result, he's very used to adapting to a variety of different musical contexts; in the few times I've had lessons from Ben, he's offered exactly what I need in that moment, and given me tools to experiment with that have occupied me for months after. He is patient, non-judgemental and fundamentally seems to enjoy nurturing your musical development. I would presume this comes from his general love of music. His brain is a mine for exceptional songs and artists, too, which is another wonderful aspect of his lessons.
Ben is so very gifted at music. It translates into his teaching. He is reliable and kind. I strongly recommend him
Ben is an accomplished guitarist and pianist, who has had a successful musical career. He is a thoughtful and reliable person whose life has revolved around writing and teaching music. I therefore have no hesitation in recommending Ben as a superprof for enjoyable and productive lessons.
