Benjamin leads a varied musical career, balancing his chamber music work and orchestral projects around his enthusiasm for coaching young musicians.

Benjamin studied at the Royal College of Music, London with Ivo-Jan van der Werff, Jonathan Barritt, Simon Rowland-Jones and Lawrence Power. Benjamin then joined Southbank Sinfonia in 2011 subsequently performing in many concerts both as orchestral player and as chamber musician. As a chamber musician he has performed throughout the UK and Europe and attended International Music Seminar Prussia Cove, working closely with the Endellion Quartet’s David Waterman and participating in the Winter Residency Programme at Banff, Canada.

Benjamin made his Wigmore Hall debut with his string quartet in 2017. He has also performed at the North Norfolk Music festival with the Arienski Ensemble and performed Schumann's Quintet with Raphael Wallfisch. Since Moving to New Zealand in 2022 Benjamin has performed with the Auckland Philharmonia, New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra Wellington and Christchurch Symphony Orchestra.
