Ben Firkin
Operations Manager

Ben is an amazingly talented ensemble director having been with Music Rocks Australia for almost a decade, and in that time Ben has established himself as one of Australia's most inspirational mentors. Ben is a Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts graduate with a Bachelor in Music (Contemporary) and an Advanced Diploma of Contemporary Music to his name.  Ben's vast encompassing knowledge of music theory and the harmony that is the building blocks of all the songs we love makes him world-class. More than anything else Ben's patience and understanding allow him to gain so much trust from his musicians of all ages, drawing out so much talent and bravery, seeing them do things even they couldn't have thought possible. Ben is what can only be described as a 'bad' bass player, with all the techniques and skills that allow his bass students to really take off too! Full Bio coming soon...
