Mr. O'Brien is no longer teaching private music lessons as he has a full-time music position as Diocesan Director of Sacred Music for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Marquette, MI. Thank you for the many happy memories of lessons & recitals!
Benjamin's Music Studio offers private lessons to students of all ages / abilities in the Lakes Region, New Hampshire.
Benjamin is a dedicated and enthusiastic music teacher with a B.A. degree in Music Performance from the University of New Hampshire and over ten years of teaching experience.
Are you interested in joining the studio? Feel free to call / email to ask if there is an opening in the schedule. If you have any questions or want to sign up see contact info below...
Private Music Lessons in Piano, Guitar, or Voice are offered weekly in 30, 45, or 60 minute one-on-one sessions. Students are expected to practice daily at home six days a week to ensure progress and to solidify concepts studied in the lesson.
*Students’ DAILY PRACTICE ROUTINE should be at least as long as their weekly lesson length i.e. a student who has a 30-minute lesson should be practicing 30mins a today.
*Parents are expected to help each week at home to ensure that music assignments and practice sessions are being completed.
*A written-out practice schedule of the week that coincides with that student’s school + extracurricular activities is incredibly essential for musical success and is expected from each parent to sit down and give this / write out with their child.
Practice sessions can be broken into TWO parts during each day i.e. 30mins can be done as 20min + 10min OR 15min + 15min
Teaching studio is conveniently located in the Lakes Region Area!
30 Minute Lesson = $20
45 Minute Lesson = $30
60 Minute Lesson = $40
Annual Recitals & Concerts
The recitals will feature all of my piano, guitar, and voice students from the Lakes Region and surrounding areas!
These are an excellent chance to feature your child's talent and help them grow as a musician through actual performance and serves to help build life skills of confidence, focus, and determination. Overall a great opportunity to give them a chance to showcase their abilities as well as to get some experience performing.
Please mark your calendars asap each fall season when dates are released and feel welcome to extend an invitation for family/friends to come!
*In lieu of a “dress rehearsal” a mandatory “coaching” session will be held several weeks before where I meet one-on-one with each student for a quick 10 minute slot with them to put the final touches on their pieces to polish it up and give them one last chance to run their pieces in the actual location of the concert. This is a big help especially to counteract any “nerves” the performer might get on the day of the recital.
