We are part of the global harmonica community. I guess being interested and involved in the harmonica community over many years has lead Ben to be elected as Chairman of the National Harmonica League in the UK, and that's quite an honour.


Ben started teaching professionally in 1995 while studying how to teach and began running workshops in London inherited from Brendan Power as he was joining Riverdance. The first lesson in school he taught in was Dulwich College in London and then in Bristol.

About the same time he met Paul Lennon whilst Paul was teaching jazz ear training at the City Literary Institute and they started working together on a harmonica education project.

Paul is a full-time composer and wrote all the tunes for these harmonica albums. He also records and produces the CDs that accompany each book. His own albums are available from CD baby : http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/paullennon
Ben has had the luck to study personally with Howard Levy (one week residential), Paul Lamb, Brendan Power, Joe Filisko, Richard Sleigh, Carlos del Junco, Sonny Terry (recorded lesson) and in workshops with Charlie McCoy, Lee Oskar, Steve Baker, Keith Dunn, Rick Estrin, Rick Epping, Adam Gussow amongst lots others - and thanks all of them for the help which he now passes on to other students.

Performance wise, Ben has played in many blues bands, and different musical groups as well as performing solo and on cruise ships. Ben and Paul played on the same bill as Larry Adler in 2000. Ben jammed in concert with Jools Holland and had a long, hilarious and fascinating lunch with Billy Connolly showing him some harmonica techniques he wanted to know about.
