Ben Thorogood

Originally a Drummer, Ben found his feet as a musician by always providing a reliable groove and always keeping time, no matter his role in a band. Ben has played in a multitude of different bands and settings and has been known to be pushed far out of his musical comfort zone and still perform to a high standard.

Ben’s influences include Michael jackson, Quincy Jones, Bernard Purdie, Danny Carrey, Paul McCartney and many more.

Ben is a graduate of The Academy of Contemporary Music in Guildford where he studied Professional Sound Production. With his new partnership with The Rock Project Berkshire, Ben is very excited to get the opportunity to show the younger generation how fun and rewarding playing an instrument can be and hopes he can inspire people in the same way he was when he was younger.’
