Highly experienced/professional musician teaches ONLINE: Theory, Reading, Arranging. ENERGETIC & ENGAGING.

I have taught theory for years. BUT many think it is just a bunch of rules. THERE'S MORE. Through CONVERSATION, we will explore these concepts. We'll begin at your current understanding then journey together. ENGAGING, INTERACTIVE, FUN, COFFEE, UNDERSTANDING, ADVANCEMENT!!!!!

Background

For 40 years I have been helping hundreds of students find the joy of music. My students have accomplished far beyond their expectations. I've helped develop high level teachers, composers, recording artists, studio back-up musicians and performers. It's been gratifying.

Benjamin's resume

My degree is in music education. I write, compose and arrange musical scores. I was given a full ride scholarship to UTEP. Upon entering college (as a freshman) I was immediately bumped up to an advanced level in most classes (specifically music theory). I was utilized to arrange music for different groups. At one point, talent scouts from Las Vegas toured UTEP looking for individuals with writing, playing and directing skills. I was offered a lucrative position at age 19. I graduated with a 3.89.

Benjamin has an excellent way of making music understandable and fun to musicians at every level. It would be difficult to find a more knowledgeable teacher when it comes to music theory and note reading; I highly recommend him for his expert teaching and unique approach to music.

Benjamin is a very patient and trustworthy teacher as well as a patient and trustworthy personin general. He is great with everyone he meets, and explains things in a very understandable way. Benjamin is so very talented musically and has been a musical influence on me since day one!

J
Justin

Benjamin is by far one the most talented musicians I know. As my teacher, Ben has displayed a nurturing environment where all are welcome to learn. He provides information in an manner that appropriate for the level of expertise the students have achieved. I think Ben would be an excellent candidate for this position. He is well versed in theory and composition and I feel would be a phenomenal addition to this team. He has a lot to offer students who are eager and willing to learn.

Benjamin is brilliant! Writes, composes, and arranges music scores for everything from full orchestras to smaller ensembles and individual pieces. He is a fantastic musician with an amazing ear. I love how personable and fun he is. He is always willing to take the time to make you a better musician... And person!

no one I'd rather learn from than Mr. Ben Hodge. Not only a great musician, but a great person with the biggest heart.

I've known Ben my entire adult life. He and his family are wonderful musicians and good people. He is very knowledgeable in the music equipment part also. He is a very caring person

I have known Ben for thirty years. He is not only completely trustworthy, he is extremely talented in all aspects of music (composing, directing, performing multiple instruments, and for decades creating programs that involve acting, singing with brass & orchestras). Ben is energetic, articulate, and loves people. You will not find a more talented, caring teacher. In the world of music, there are few in his league.

Ben is one of the best musicians/teachers/mentors I've ever known! He was a huge musical influence on myself and many others! Not only is he insanely talented but has a huge heart for people and great patience for students at any level! Highly recommended!

Benny proficiently plays multiple instruments and writes music. He doesn't need a a recommendation. If you are brave enough to talk to him for 2 minutes, you better hope that you aren't overwhelmed. I mean this guy thinks trombones are made out of paper! Every time he gets his hands on one he tears it up!! He is the best of both worlds, an incredible musician and an honest, knowledgeable, passionate teacher. He consistently keeps moving forward. I've known him since 1995. You can only gain from his talent if you have the privilege of meeting him.
