Learn, Create, Play!
Ben Zanowski is a blues, rock, and jazz guitarist from Lancaster Pennsylvania. Ben took up the guitar shortly before entering high-school and quickly fell in love with the music of yesteryear. He quickly developed a love of the blues rock guitar, citing Jimi Hendrix, BB King, Robben Ford, and Neil Young as influences.
His love of the guitar and passion for music led to his enrollment at Millersville University as a Performance Major. There he participated in the Jazz Ensemble, Commercial Ensemble, Guitar Ensemble, and performed two solo recitals. In his spare time, Ben loves playing with other musicians, particularly in a band format; and learning how to listen, react, and work with other musicians to move an audience through music. Ben is especially eager to join Penn Square Music Conservatory and the field of teaching and passing the joy of music on to others!
