Ben has an additional passion for teaching. To him, passing on lessons and knowledge gained through field experience is an important part of the craft; especially midst an industry full of unnecessary gatekeeping.

Zoom MA programming session
It brings Ben great joy to see his students grasp new technical concepts or simply begin to see the endless possibilities in production work. Whenever possible, he welcomes students of all ages to come join him at the board for sound check, talk about what goes into the show, and then see it in action. MA programming lessons are offered via Zoom.
