Hi Folks,

Making music with people is my passion.
There's nothing I love more than
improvising jingles, jams, songs, and tags,
dropping beats, free-style
--> rinse --> repeat

Spontaneous play is as
much fun when you're thirty as
when you were three.

Come on, I'll show you how...


Shared experiences and collaborative creation builds community. Add a little music and you'll find yourself right here.  



I was about 9 when I got my first drum set, and almost immediately, I began an obsession of pulling every tune carrying, guitar playing, accordion stretching person I could find to come make music with me and I haven't stopped since. At 14, I got my first guitar and led sing-alongs with my regional youth group. Since, I have sang and made up songs with staff members, congregants, students, and campers across the country. 

It is an absolute pleasure bringing communities into the process of making seriously awesome music and watching them grow closer and closer as they offer more and more of themselves up to the music.

Musical Improv

Short Form

Ben leads groups to swiftly improvise quick songs, jams, jingles, raps, and tags to experience group play at it's best. Short Forms warm up the voice and awaken collaborative creativity through fluid, musical dialogue.

Long Form

Write a full-length song or anthem about your organization or a pertinent idea. Participants may work in small breakout groups for closer bonding and networking, and they'll walk away with a strong sense of team pride and accomplishment. Long Forms are also great for practicing collaborative skills as we define our goals, strategize, and delegate to achieve them as a cohesive team.

Singing Songs

Quickly bond over shared repertoire and the experience of singing together. Learn and sing along to great songs of the last 100 years while we play and bend the shape of song structures, lyrics, harmonies, and accompanying movement to transform our songs from a passive to an active tool for creative expression. Silly songs will stretch great ideas to their limits to illustrate their intuitive truth, simplicity, and usability in our professional and personal lives, while popular songs serve as a uniting force and great place to begin a thematic discussion.

Story Play

Story Play is your laboratory for getting down and dirty with some of the most challenging collaborative skills you use. We tell personal stories to validate, inspire, and support each other. We create fictional stories to practice good listening, planning, and the process of creative negotiation.

And the Moral of the Story Is... a great activity for your group to get to know each other better while engaging with fun and challenging techniques of goal-oriented collaboration. 

Game Play

Games and competitions are great for team bonding, letting personalities shine, and having a ton of fun. I use games of all sorts to practice creativity and good habits of teamwork.

Ben is a passionate and brilliant musician...I have seen him in a bandana and cowboy boots as he whips a full room into a rousing frenzy of “Oh Susannah!” on the banjo. I have also seen him sing a quiet and moving ballad as a room full of teenagers sits mesmerized. It was an absolute pleasure working with Ben.
— Jodi Woodnick, Camp Stein, AZ
Ben is a compelling song leader with an incredibly joyful approach to making seriously great music. I’ve watched him lead very intimate groups and huge crowds of hundreds of voices, captivating the room with both exuberant creativity and quiet charism. Ben is a superb educator, one who conveys deep meaning through artful music and transforms the energy in the room around him.
