A graduate of the Conservatories of Paris, Boulogne-Billancourt, (France) and the University of Montreal, Benjamin is passionate about transmission and musical and instrumental pedagogy. He has taught in conservatories in India, Morocco and France. Concerts have taken him across Europe with the orchestra Les Siècles and the quartets Echo and Lamy. (France and Switzerland).
