Ben strives to innovate creativity and music-making with his students through group lessons and Yamaha programs in hopes to create more music!
Mr. Bang Jing has been my daughter’s private lesson teacher for about 2 years and we feel she is so privileged to be Mr. Bang Jing’s student. He is a phenomenal composer who has great deal of patience with young students and their novice parents. His clear instructions and encouragements facilitate my daughter’s practice at home as well. Mr. Bang Jing is a great role model for students as a musician and composer!
Mr Ben Yeo’s talent and youthful energy shine in class. We enjoy his relaxed style as he teaches the group class.
