Ben is our most respect member of the horn faculty. Equipped with his most dear instrument and his gentle way of tackling challenges, he is a true joy to work with. Originally from Carlisle, where he was a member of many youth groups like the Cumbria Youth Orchestra and the Carlisle Wind Band he undertook lessons at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland before being accepted as a student at the very prestigious Chetham’s School of Music.
He moved to the City of London as a student of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama where he learned under Jonathan Lipton, one of the very best horn players in the UK. He has since performed professionally many times at some of London’s most renowned venues such as the Barbaican and the Royal Festival Hall and is regarded as a very musical and reliable instrumentalist.
