      Mister G

      As an outspoken environmental activist, Ben believes that children are "the most creative and resilient drivers of social change. He describes his work as "leveraging the power of music to educate, inspire, and empower young people to help solve the most pressing issues of our time."Born and raised in Philadelphia, Ben Gundersheimer is a graduate of Amherst College and the recipient of the first songwriting scholarship awarded by the Berklee College of Music. For his Masters of Education thesis, Ben created a curriculum that incorporated songwriting as a learning tool. Dubbed Mister G by his 4th grade students, he began writing the songs that would comprise his debut family album while working as a classroom teacher.More than a decade later, Ben has released ten albums as 'Mister G' and received numerous accolades including a Latin GRAMMY Award and four Parents Choice Gold Awards. He tours internationally headlining performing arts centers, festivals, and theaters, performing in both English and Spanish.Fluent in a broad range of genres and styles, Ben collaborates widely with internationally renowned musicians, both onstage and in the studio. His recordings feature guest performances by saxophonist Charles Neville (Neville Brothers), Senegalese talking drum master Massamba Diop (Baaba Maal), pianist Janina Rosado (Juan Luis Guerra), bassist Oscar Stagnaro (Paquito DRivera) and pianist Arturo O'Farrill.
