Eric loves getting to know his students, discovering their musical interests and what inspires them to learn. From there it’s all about forging the proper path towards each individual student’s goals. It’s important that each lesson builds upon the last, that the student feels like they are constantly making new accomplishments and above all that they are always enjoying the process. Eric’s main instrument is the drums but he also enjoys teaching guitar, piano and rock band.
