Introduction: Because I teach how to play with other musicians, stress beat keeping, and correct strumming technique - and I get people READY TO PERFORM before a live audience. The best thing about teaching people how to play guitar (and sing) is to watch their confidence grow. Playing music is a very empowering thing.

Great teacher AND a funny, insightful man. No better person to spend an hour with. For years he has made lessons fun for my young son and his ole dad.

Every guitar session with Bennett is an adventure. He makes learning music theory a blast, even for a slow learner and a seriously late bloomer. I appreciate that Bennett is open to teaching different musical genres and his musical taste is impeccable! Highly recommended.

I've been taking lessons from Bennett for more than a year now and it has been great. Bennett has a knack for teaching both music theory and just plain learning how to rock, revel and have confidence belting out a song. He teaches both kids and adults brilliantly.

Bennett has an extraordinary ability to zero in on his student's skills and musical affinities... He has a nerdy, highly precise knowledge of the instrument, of guitar technique and of music history... Months ago I would barely sing with anyone else in the room, and didn't know how to play guitar. This morning I played guitar and harmonized with Bennett on a Stones song. Take music lessons with Bennett - only good can come of it.

Encyclopedic in his knowledge of music, generous with praise, patient and persistent with my seven-year old son's less-than-full grasp of guitar, I have found Bennett Stein to be a top notch teacher. He brings both a music connoisseur's scholarship and a rock star's joy to his tutelage.

FAQs

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Of course. I constantly breakdown new styles of music, the latest hits, just to stay abreast of what's going on in the music world.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    My older brothers made a biopic flick about The Who. From there my brother Jeff became one of the "hottest" MTV music video directors of the 80s/90s/00s and I was his assistant for most of that run and so I got to hang on set with the gods and goddesses of rock, punk and R&B music. The experience made me commit to learning guitar.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    I get my clients counting the beat, strumming correctly, developing stamina and recognizing that when they commit to learning a song they are conquering fears and becoming the kind of person people want to be around. Sounds kooky I know, but it's true.
