I have attended the following schools earning the following degrees:
- Dartington College of Arts - BA (with honours) Music (Performance)
Originally from the UK, but now residing in Vancouver, woodwind specialist (sax, flute, and clarinet) Ben earned his B.A. with honours in Music (Performance) from Dartington College of Arts in Devon, UK. On completing his degree I moved to London where I soon became an in demand musician throughout London and the UK, performing and recording in many different groups and genres, from Big Bands, small group jazz ensembles, Latin / World Music Groups, Pit Orchestras, Pop Bands, and Classical Ensembles. Since moving to Vancouver, Canada, I have quickly made a name for myself on the local scene, becoming an in demand freelance musician, as well as running his own combos, along with becoming a well respected educator. I have also helped adjudicate Nationally known music Festivals. Throughout my career I have been lucky enough to play all over the world, including Scandinavia, Russia, Canada, and the Caribbean, and has performed at venues that include The Barbican, Royal Festival Hall, the Royal Albert Hall in London, the 606 Club (London), O’Douls Restaurant and Bar (Vancouver), Cory Weeds' The Cellar Jazz Club (Vancouver), as well as being featured at the TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival. Along with all this experience, I like to bring my joy and passion for music into my music lessons, along with catering to your own specific needs.
