Guitar

Bennett's passion for music began in his family's living room, listening to his mother's record collection, a wide range of classics such as Aretha Franklin, Fleetwood Mac, and the Beatles. When he would sing along, dance to the beat, or bang on their old piano unceremoniously, he felt a connection with those old songs that he had found in few other places. One of his favorite things of all was the rare occasion when his grandfather would strum his dusty guitar and sing lovely folk melodies and silly songs; at these times Bennett knew that this, more than anything, was what he wanted to do. As he grew, he joined the church choir and played handbells to develop his understanding of music, spending his middle school and high school years discovering the way notes blend to create harmony and movement. It was in 2001, however, that Bennett received his first electric guitar, and it was then that he felt that he finally had an instrument that was truly his.

From 2005 to 2009 Bennett attended the Savannah College of Art and Design where he focused on theatre and earned a BA in Film and Television. At SCAD, he fostered his interest in the narratives we use to spark empathy and explore new perspectives through various mediums. Upon returning to Atlanta, he found a way to bring his passion for narrative and his love of music together by playing guitar for professional musicals in town; he's performed in the band for musicals such as Spring Awakening, Rent, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, A Light in the Piazza, and many others. In 2014, Bennett took the next step in his music career by attending the Atlanta Institute of Music, where he developed his musical talent, dove deeper into music theory, and learned to tell his stories through his six string while capturing a solid understanding of the recording process. He left AIMM in 2016 with an Associates Degree in Music & Technology and a renewed fire to give music his all and spread the love and joy of music through teaching and live performance.
