    Great guy who seems like he'd be a great teacher if you're just starting out, but not at the level that I needed. I specifically stated that I needed a high-level teacher who could teach me advanced techniques & concepts, but unfortunately it wasn't the right fit. I would recommend to beginners & intermediate players only.

    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.

About this pro

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.

    Q & A

    • 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.
