GUITAR: Ben Glaros
Ben Glaros has been performing, writing, recording and teaching music professionally since he graduated from what is now the McNally Smith College of Music in 1988. He has contributed his formidable guitar skills to countless projects ranging stylistically from jazz and blues to country and indie rock. Most recently he is known for his guitar work with the experimental folk/pop band Fathom Lane whose self titled second album made many Twin Cities “best of” lists and has been played extensively on 89.3 the Current. He has also established himself as a highly regarded singer and songwriter with his two critically acclaimed solo albums. In addition to his years of professional experience as a musician he has studied with classical master Jeffery Van, guitar wizard Dean Magraw and rock legend Richard Lloyd from the band Television.
Like his playing, Ben’s approach to teaching is very spontaneous and flexible, and his easy going personality, enthusiasm and wide ranging experience make him the perfect teacher for students of all styles, ages and skill levels. Anyone with a desire to learn will enjoy and benefit greatly from lessons with Ben!

“…Kam helped me expand my knowledge of the instrument. I wanted to learn more theory and reading so that’s what we did at a comfortable and engaging pace. I would highly recommend Kam if you’re stuck in a rut like I was or just starting out.” — Justin from Minneapolis
“… [Kameron] taught me how to read music, was always prepared with a lesson and gave me great material to work on at home. Kameron is a seriously talented bassist and musician and can take your playing anywhere you want it to go. I ended up playing bass in a local cover band and I highly doubt I would have gotten there without him!” — Jen from Philadelphia
