Ben Winn

Percussion and Curriculum Tutor

Ben is a drummer, percussionist, songwriter and performance poet. He has produced nine solo albums and performed on music and comedy stages all over the UK. His poetry has been published in several magazines and appeared on BBC Radio 4. As part of Sargasso Trio he toured the UK and helped to produce and write two albums, achieving record of the week on BBC Radio 2. He has taught drums and percussion for almost twenty years.

Ben says, “The first big concert I attended was AC/DC at Wembley Arena when I was 14. I was a huge fan, they were the band I drummed along to in my early years when I was first playing drums in my mum’s garage. It was an incredible show and I had the bug for performing after that night.”

“If I was to write the book of my life, perhaps I would call it You Winn Some You Lose Some, a pun on my name that also describes my experience as a musician and performer. We learn from our mistakes, and music is full of happy accidents.”
