Back To School Bootcamp

August 5-8, 2021

I created the T5 Back to School Bootcamp to get you in peak condition at the end of your summer break and it will run from August 5-8. I use the same teaching techniques for my students at the New England Conservatory of Music, plus new materials I’ve developed just for this program.

Practice Window Training

Practice Windows are 5-minute videos recorded during a practice session. The idea is to capture a short clip of how you actually practice – it is not a performance. Practice Window Training™ is a 20-minute lesson, watching the Practice Window together, to create a more efficient, productive, and satisfying practice experience.

“With Up Your Game, I am getting the same information via his high-quality audio setup as if I were sitting in the same room with him, without the expense and hassle of traveling to Boston.  

The Sound Truth Library videos and Practice Window Training create a great feedback loop –  I listen to Ben play an excerpt and the same week be coached on how to work through it at home. 

The Practice Window training really helped me create better practice habits – it quickly showed me how I could be more efficient in getting to my goals faster.”

Ben’s teaching made me see the importance of playing longer lines and being more organized. Hearing him in person and in the orchestra was always inspiring. My playing wouldn’t be where it is today if I hadn’t studied with him.

“Ben has been an incredible mentor and teacher for me, and I can’t thank him enough for all the invaluable lessons he has given me in music and beyond…. The perspective he provided was just the right push at just the right time to allow me to be happy and successful here and now.

Ben’s approach of singing to save chop time and focus on the music was really beneficial to me. His focus on being mentally and physically balanced was one of the keys to my success in winning auditions. Years after I studied with Ben, he was a pillar of support when I needed his it most – his advice helped me bounce back from a challenging time in my career and move forward.
