Guitar & Ukulele Lessons
❝Ben is a really nice guy and very helpful I've been having guitar lessons with him for 2 terms and have learnt so much! I highly recommend him as a tutor.
❝Ben is a awesome guitar teacher, a very talented, patient and kind person! My 12 year old daughter loves going to her weekly lessons and has done so over the past 3 and a 1/2 years! Highly recommend!
❝Ben is currently teaching my daughter the ukelele. Ben is a very patient and approachable teacher. He allows Oriana to select her own songs to learn and is kind and supportive of her learning. I would absolutely recommend Ben as a tutor.
❝Our son has been learning guitar since the age of 8 first through his school and then with another teacher. We only came across Ben 18 months ago when we felt our son had lost interest in playing. His previous teacher was difficult to follow and didn't inspire him. After the first lesson he was inspired again. Ben was able to quickly establish where he was at and where he needed to go. He now looks forward to his lessons each week and always come home motivated to learn. Ben allows him to choose his own music and they often play along together. Whilst the lessons are a lot of fun Ben doesn't let him cut corners and as a result his technical ability has dramatically improved. Ben has a lovely, respectful and easy way with young people and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending him to any other parents looking for a teacher
❝My 11 year old daughter has been having guitar lessons with Ben for about a year now. She loves learning to play songs that she can relate to and are modern. Ben has been extremely helpful in his advise and support in encouraging her to overcome her performing issues. I would highly recommend Ben as a guitar tutor - he is very approachable, friendly and helpful as well as giving our daughter an excellent guitar education.
❝We were very lucky to find Ben. My two young boys have been going to Ben for lessons for a term now and both of them like and respect Ben so much. He is a very inspiring teacher. I am hoping that the boys carry on with the guitar, I'm sure they will be keen as long as Ben is their teacher.
❝Ben was a great teacher and really easy to work with. He made learning really and worked with me at my pace. I enjoyed his attitude and his passion towards the guitar and I was so proud to be able to play my favourite song!
❝Ben is the most patient teacher i have ever meet. He has a lot of knowledge and is able to adjust to every student you bring to him. I would not hesitate to recommend Ben to anyone. Thanks Ben.
❝Ben is a great teacher and I highly recommend him. He is encouraging and patient and his teaching studio is clean, comfortable and quiet, providing an ideal environment to learn in. I started lessons as a beginner wanting to explore different genres and styles. Ben was incredibly accommodating, having appropriate material ready for me at every lesson. As well as fun and inspiring, the lessons are also very affordable. I find myself looking forward to my guitar lesson every week!
❝Ben taught my daugher Emma, Ukelele and Guitar. He very quickly assessed where she was at and determined what level to teach her. He could also see her strength with her musical ear and encouraged that and gave her freedom to work out songs that were of interest to her. He is a very focused, patient, professional teacher - highly recommend.
❝Superb tutor! Easy to understand, follow and genuinely interested in what you want to learn. Great patience with the young ones too. :-)
❝At 59 years of age I decided to get serious about learning to play guitar after years of stopping and starting. I find Ben to be a very patient and knowledgeable tutor.I HIGHLY recommend him.
❝Ben is not only a great musician but a knowledgeable, passionate and patient teacher. So grateful to have found him!
❝Ben is a fantastic teacher! I developed my skills more in the 2 months i was with him for lessons than i did in like 2 years of self study! totally worth the lessons. I only stopped because of Uni and money issues
❝My 11 year old son has been having guitar lessons with Ben for the last month. Ben is a great teacher. I have been impressed with his patient, positive and relaxed yet professional approach. Ben has tailored the lessons to my sons level. I would recommend Ben to anyone wanting to play the guitar.
❝After self-teaching a lot of bad habits, Ben has been awesome and put me on the right track. Each lesson is catered to my wants, and Ben does a great job structuring to make sure I keep progressing technically. Would recommend to anyone happily.
❝I would highly recommend Ben to anyone wanting an education in music. I have had a few music teachers and Ben has been the first one that's actually taught me music theory and structure suited to my needs. He's easy to get along with and prepares lessons custom to your requirements. I plan on continuing my lessons with Ben and advise you to start aswell! Thanks mate.
❝I’ve been having lessons for around 4 months and was a complete novice when I started. Ben gave me great advice on what guitar to buy and where to go for it. The lessons are fun and informative and tailored to my own musical taste and the techniques that I want to learn. If you’re looking to learn guitar in the Christchurch area I would thoroughly recommend Ben.
❝Ben has been an excellent guitar tutor. I have really appreciated his patient manner and the well-structured yet flexible approach he takes to planning his lessons. Highly recommended.
❝Ben has been my guitar tutor for 6months now and I look forward to his lesson every week. Ben is very patient, gives great feedback and encouragement. As a complete novice I was very nervous but Ben put me at ease and has made every single one of my lessons fun, enjoyable and worthwhile. I would highly recommend Ben to anyone wanting to learn guitar.
❝I was wanting to learn some proper technique on the ukulele and came across Ben on the internet and I'm so glad I did!! He is extremely professional and patient, and with just a couple of sessions with him I have greatly improved and no longer lack confidence to jam on my little uke. I've moved away from NZ but will continue to take lessons with him via Skype. I cannot recommend Ben enough! It's nerve racking learning a new instrument as an adult but he definitely made me feel totally comfortable and at ease.
❝Ben's lessons are great. I must be the worst guitar student but he is very patient and great at pitching the lessons to my ability. My son now goes as well and is making huge progress.
❝Ben has been a great teacher. I was self taught electric guitar. Ben has helped to iron out my bad habits and teach me loads of new things. I had little or no knowledge of music theory. Ben has helped me heaps and I'm learning lots. Basically Ben is a all round awesome teacher.
❝I have started my lessons with Ben a few months ago and I really enjoy it. I learn so much every time, he always has something prepared on my personal preferences. He is patient, makes you feel comfortable and really listens to your input on what you want to achieve in your classes. He explains stuff very well, is also fun and easy going. His place is really easy to get to, the class room is small but well set up. All in all, the best guitar teacher I had so far and excellent value for money.
❝Ben has been tutoring my three boys aged between 8 and 13 for over 6 months now. He has revitalised there interest in learning guitar and they enjoy his relaxed style of teaching. He deals with multiple student lessons well giving each student the time and encouragement they need to learn and develop at their own pace. I recommend Ben
❝Ben is an excellent tutor, he was very patient with my 8 year old who had never had any sort of music experience beforehand. Lessons were well structured yet adaptable. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Ben for anyone looking for music tuition.
