Ben Spalding has two passions in his life: his family and music. Ben grew up in the Winton Woods school district, where he met his future wife, Kylene, who shares his love of music. After graduating from the University of Kentucky, Ben taught music at Winton Woods schools. Ben now lives with his wife and two daughters in Centerville, Ohio.

Ben is an avid supporter of a cappella music and recently wrote a book with Deke Sharon and Brody McDonald, called A Cappella (available at and other resellers).  He is a founding member of the A Cappella Education Association and is associated with several other a cappella organizations.  He is an instructor at Camp A Cappella and a clinician for vocal groups across the country.

Ben, along with Deke Sharon, has recently formed a professional a cappella group called Vocalight. Vocalight is comprised of award-winning vocalists and performers from the Dayton, Ohio area.

Ben is the head Choral Director at Centerville High School in Centerville, Ohio.  At CHS, Ben directs all of the vocal groups and is also the music director for the fall and spring musicals. Under his direction, the Symphonic Choir has received Superior ratings at OMEA since 2011.  Forte, the premier a cappella group at CHS, are the 2016 ICHSA global champions.
