Benjamin Lassiter is a North Carolina-based musician with over twenty years of experience playing and teaching guitar. Comfortable in many musical genres including jazz, blues, rock and more, Benjamin teaches and performs across NC and beyond.

At Russell Lacy Music in Durham, NC, Benjamin teaches over twenty private lessons a week while also arranging and rehearsing RLM’s ensemble program, where young musicians learn to play together. You may catch Benjamin performing with The Mint Julep Jazz Band, a favorite of the swing dance scene, or with The Onyx Club Boys, a gypsy jazz-inspired string band.


While guitar and bass guitar are his primary loves, Benjamin also loves to tinker with the violin.
