Instruments:

Saxophonist, composer, arranger and recording artist, Eric is an exciting and creative soloist who specializes in finding the groove and building on the energy. His roots are grounded in the traditions of jazz, but his style reaches into more modern genres such as funk, R&B, and rock. Originally from Akron Ohio, Eric spent the first ten years of his musical career playing in jazz and show bands around the Midwest.  As a band leader and side man, he ended up on some well-known stages including Nighttown, the House of Blues, the Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame and Severance Hall. In 2006 Eric released his first full length album entitled "Say," which featured seven original compositions and two arrangements of American classics. After relocating to Southern California in 2007, Eric began expanding his musical career into new territory. In addition to Ruby Sue and the Ethereal Blues, he has performed with numerous acts such as Vaud and the Villains, DC Babylon, Scott McLaughlin, Big Whiskey, and Sugah Daddy.  He leads his own jazz and R&B group, which can be seen monthly at the Winery Restaurant in Tustin, CA.   Eric is constantly striving to listen, learn and elevate his playing to the next level.

I truly believe that all learning, while serious in nature, should be fun and exciting in methodology. Living in the age of technology, there are so many ways to make learning fun and interesting for students. Whether it be sharing information from Youtube, educational sites such as The Teaching Channel, using digital music apps such as "Smart Music" for assessment, showing a student how to record themselves on their smartphones, all of these things can be brought in to the instructional experience. The most important part of teaching is knowing your students, what they want to learn, and divising curriculums to fit their needs.

My teaching style is fun loving and educational. I like to make sure each student is having fun and learning while playing music. Music is a universal language and can be taught to students of all ages. I hope to bring this music to life and have students want to practice and have fun while playing. There is nothing that is more rewarding then having students smile after completing a piece. I hope that I can convey my passion and love for music to each student I teach!

With private students, I customize my teaching methods to how each student best learns. I have several methods to teach most music concepts and saxophone technique so that I can better connect with each student’s learning style. I find students have a more enjoyable experience when I give them the chance to learn what they would like to play. For jazz students, I first have them identify a musician they enjoy listening to and begin exploring what makes that player unique. We work on sound production, articulation, stylistic considerations, rhythmic feel, and jazz vocabulary. Learning how to sound like the student’s role model helps to give them a context and approachable goals. We use jazz repertoire to build and enhance harmonic recognition and improvisational abilities.

Greetings! Through my study of saxophone during these past 13 years, I have developed a deep love for music and have gained a great appreciation for the incredible impact it can have on our lives. I would love nothing more than to share my passion, whether it be through performance or passing on my knowledge through teaching to future generations. I'd like to show students how fun and rewarding it can be to develop the skill that is playing an instrument. The concepts and values acquired through the study of music can influence every aspect of life and will stay with with a student for the rest of their lives. This includes but is not limited to: creativity, patience/perseverance, discipline, learning new skills in general, time management/organization, memory, concentration, self achievement/reflection and much more. There is truly nothing quite like it.

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
