Much has been written about Benjamin Beirs. As a soloist, as a composer, and as a chamber musician, Ben's commitment to "finding a new path" is paying handsome dividends to audiences, critics and other artists as well.
Believing that music is a "great kindness," Benjamin Beirs has spread this gospel from concert venues like the Kennedy Center to guitar society audiences to schools to nursing homes, churches, night clubs and studios.

Currently, Ben lives in Paris, France, where he continues his artistic pursuits while studying with renowned French guitarist and pedagogue Judicael Perroy.
