Ben Parsons

Acclaimed College of Music Graduate and Award-Winning Musician Currently Residing in Northwest Florida
Teaching Philosophy

I aim to use all of my education and experience to give my students the most effective learning experience. I combine my extensive theoretical knowledge from University with my so-called musical "Street-Smarts" from my experience performing music to feed both the left and right brain in my students and provide an effective teaching method. I adapt to a student's natural musical instincts and give them the information they need to succeed.

Experience

I have been a teacher and professional musician for the past 5 years. I currently reside in Florida on the Gulf Coast, where I have had the opportunity to play music full time and maintain a healthy teaching studio. I began my teaching career in Tallahassee, Fl during my time studying music at Florida State University as an individual and group guitar lesson instructor. My studio currently contains students Guitar, Mandolin, and Electric Bass.

Credentials

I am a graduate of the Florida State University College of Music with a Bachelor of Music in Music Theory and Composition, with an instrumental focus on Classical Guitar. During my professional music career I have been nominated for and have received awards for instrumental performance for myself and also for my current musical project, Schatzi + The String Boffin.
