Mr. Benjamin Henigin
Hello! My name is Mr. Henigin and I am a Guitar and Music Technology teacher at Metz Middle School. I recently graduated in August of 2020 from the Indiana University of Pennsylvania with a degree in Music Education. Originally from Western Pennsylvania, I enjoy several outdoor activities, especially fishing and hiking throughout the Appalachian Mountains, as well as watching my favorite Pittsburgh sports teams. To date, I have performed with various groups across the Country including at George Mason University for the U.S. Navy Saxophone Symposium, Fairfax VA. Also at the National American Saxophone Alliance Conference at the University of Pittsburgh. My primary instrument is the saxophone. During Pennsylvania’s Stay-At-Home Order in Spring of 2020, I conducted professional research into how a global pandemic affects music consumption. Over 250 people participated in this endeavour from all across the United States. I absolutely love my job at Grace E. Metz Middle School and I'm very excited for the year ahead!
