BEN commenced drum coaching with Sono after completing his Bachelor of Music (Jazz Drums) at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music.

“Realising that you’re a lot more than just a teacher and being able to help so many different people with different goals and aspirations is incredibly rewarding.  I always strive to do my best to help our clients.  I love what I do and I do what I love.”

Inspired by various artists such as Luke Williams, Eric Dolphy, John Coltrane, Circa Survive, Europa, The Contortionist, Andrew Hill, Novelists and Mestis, Ben displays his skills performing several times a week in various freelance/cover and original groups ranging from jazz, metal, pop and latin.

“I’ve committed to a career in music coaching because I am lucky enough to bring together two of my biggest passions; drums/percussion and education. My musical journey wouldn’t be possible without the knowledge, advice, motivation and inspiration I received throughout my lessons growing up. I love being able to share my knowledge and advice to assist clients with their musical aspirations and goals “
