Benjamin Maclean

Benjamin Maclean grew up in a very musical household, and has been around music his whole life. However, he didn’t start playing music until the age of 13. Since then, his love for music has only grown. Ben plays guitar and upright bass, playing a wide variety of genres including jazz, blues, pop, r&b, soul, hip-hop, folk and rock. He is currently in his third year of the Humber music program and hopes to get a masters in either performance or musicology.
