Description

Biography:

I am a professional teacher of music and performing musician. I instruct beginners through advanced students of all ages in piano, classical organ, harpsichord and MIDI instruments (including electronic keyboards and their use). Skype lessons are available. I also teach theory and recording and music scoring software. I provide custom recordings using state of the art equipment. My studio is equipped with two Steinway model B grand pianos, a harpsichord, a classical electronic organ and MIDI recording suite. New students are provided with a free consultation during which rates and scheduling are discussed. I have a B.A. in music performance with many years of private post-graduate study with Anthony Chanaka and Dr. Conrad Bernier. I am a member of the Northern Virginia Music Teachers Association, the Washington, D.C. Music Teachers Association, The Fairfax-Loudon Music Fellowship and the American Guild of Organists. I welcome your inquiry about private or group lessons.

Testimonials
 
Name:  Mary L
Title:  Recommendation
Testimonial:  My 3 daughters have been students of Mr. Steve Benson for nearly three years now and during that time, I have had occasion to observe his teaching method, manner and results. Mr. Benson is very deliberate and knowledgeable in his method, which at first may seem too slow in producing results, i.e. the student playing recognizable songs. In fact, I myself was skeptical at first since my girls seemed to be learning at a slower rate than their peers studying at different studios. However, in under 2 years, the brilliance of Mr. Bensonís way was abundantly apparent. With proper fingering, proper posture, and the proper reading of music notes, time signature and dynamics, my girls can now out-perform all of their contemporaries; and further, they can sit down to a new piece of music with confidence and work it out in no time, even if they have never heard it! I myself had taken piano lessons for 5 years beginning in middle school, and I can say Mr. Benson has inspired me, through his influence on my girls, to play again. And, more importantly, I have learned more from his method of teaching than I did in all 5 years of my own lessons put together! Finally, as a parent paying good money for lessons, I appreciate Mr. Bensonís manner with the girls, which is infinitely patient, without being soft. Every student needs to be challenged to their potential without being pushed too hard, and I have found that Mr. Benson takes the time to get to know each childís personality, so that he can effectively teach each one in the way that that student needs. I highly recommend Mr. Steve Benson as a piano teacher and truly appreciate his dedication and professionalism in his method and instruction. I love hearing my girls making music in our home, thanks to Mr. Benson! Sincerely, Mary L
