My Education and Professional Background

Benjamin began playing the trumpet in the fifth grade and during high school participated in numerous festivals, theatre productions, and competitions. He has also performed with the Salt River Brass, ASU Sun Devil Marching Band, and various churches in the valley. He taught himself the guitar in high school and continued learning through college instruction. In December of 2014 Benjamin graduated summa cum laude from Arizona State University with a bachelor's degree in Music Education.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe that children are our future and as such they need an environment where they can grow emotionally, intellectually, and socially. It is my desire as an educator to facilitate these needs by acting as a guide through every student's learning situation. Through their time spent here it is my hope that they develop a sense of individuality, a passion for something they value, respect for their fellow humans, and the determination to stretch themselves to achieve what they are capable of.
