Besides all this teaching, thinking, and music-making, I'm a real person, too! I live in South Hadley, MA with my spouse, Samantha, and our cat, Hermie.  I love great food, beer, wine, and cocktails; I'm getting to be a pretty good cook and mixologist. If you're interested in that sort of non-work-related content (cat, food, drinks, etc.) please follow my Instagram!

Just to round things out, I'm also linking to a curriculum vitae in case you want to know more, as well as a signup list for my (extremely occasional) email newsletter. If you want to contact me, you can email me at ben dot piano at g mail dot com. Thanks for reading!
