Ben is a gifted composer. His music varies in genre and style but always stays true to whatever it is being themed around.
He is skilled in composing, arranging, teaching, and conducting. He has two different opportunities to display his skills both opportunities being held at his local high school.
In his senior year at high school, he arranged two of his original compositions for his high school band, taught his peers how to play it the way it was intended to be heard, then on stage he conducted it.
His compositions got wonderful feed back from the audience --some from older folks, some from younger folks, but all of the feedback was heartfelt --some even with tears.
Ben enjoys composing around a theme and style, orchestrating around a band, and creating music to glorify God. Though most (pretty much all) of his music does not have lyrics (except for occasional choir songs), his music is intended to have a presence on a stage that doesn't lift his own name up, but his God's.
Ben, having 6 years in the retail-sales industry, knows first hand how to deal with people in an friendly, yet professional way. He also has music producing skills with realistic midi instruments in Logic Pro X (East West instrument plugin).
