Get to know Benjamin Henson

I am a professional music educator who loves the excitement and satisfaction that comes from helping students of all ages develop skills on their instrument. I have over ten years experience teaching private students and four years of experience leading school orchestra programs in Iowa and Texas. I have also taught violin and viola at Luther College's Dorian Summer Music Camps and directed the Friends of Ames Strings Summer Camp in Iowa. I am licensed in music education in both Iowa and Texas. I received my Bachelor of Arts in music and education from Luther College. While there, I studied violin under Tarn Travers and Igor Kalnin and graduated summa cum laude. As a performer, I have played with several regional orchestras, including the Central Iowa Symphony as assistant concertmaster. Even though I was classically trained, I have always loved experimenting with pop, folk, bluegrass, and jazz. I graduated from the Piano Technician Academy in 2020 and work as a piano tuner and technician. I have been happily married to my wife Christina since 2016 and our daughter Miriam was born in 2019. In addition to my musical activities, I am currently attending seminary at St. Ignatius Lutheran Theological Seminary in Malone, Texas.
