About Benjamin Markl
Comments from other artists and colleagues
„I was first introduced to Benny when we worked together on the staff at German Music Camp some years ago…
I was immediately impressed with his engaging personality and his ability to make good music with groups of all ages.
Not only an excellent band trainer, as I experienced when I spent time with his Woodshockers band, but a real leader and example to those he is working with.
If you get the opportunity to work with Benny, take it with both hands, you will not regret it and you will learn so much not only as a musician but more importantly as a person!!“
