Overview:
Hello! My name is Eric Eaton and I am a professional cellist living in Brooklyn NY. I started playing cello at the age of 10 and instantly fell in love with the world of music. From an early age I was taught to love and appreciate music from all over the world and that has been something I'm very passionate about passing on to my students. My training was primarily in Classical Music specializing in solo and chamber playing. I attended the Manhattan School of Music where I studied with David Geber. After attending MSM I stayed in NYC to pursue a career in cello performance and teaching. Working as a Teaching Artist in NY state has been one of the most fulfilling jobs of my life. For the last 9 years I have worked in public schools in NYC and upstate NY giving private lessons, masterclasses, workshops and performances. I have also performed extensively in NYC playing in venues such as Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center and Le Poisson Rouge as well as touring nationally with a production of Camelot. Most recently I had the pleasure of traveling around the world performing piano quintets with Lincoln Center Stage.
EXPERIENCE
For 10 years I have held a private studio where I teach students of all ages, backgrounds and skill levels including very advanced children and adult beginners. My teaching style is tailored for each student as everyone is an individual and we all learn at different rates and require different techniques. I do however have a few principals that carry over to all students. First and foremost music should be fun! Everyone loves music, its why we listen to it on the way to work, when we relax or just for the fun of it. Getting to explore the amazing world of music is a gift and I believe learning an instrument should be fun and stimulating just as music is. Secondly the lessons should be challenging without being overwhelming. It feels good to accomplish something that is difficult and that feeling of accomplishment is one of the major motivations behind learning an instrument.
METHODS USED

For beginner students I always like to start from the Hal Leanords Essential Elements. It is a great way to start a student off and provides them the fundamentals they need to improve. After that I like to mix in a combination of scales and etudes to continue their technical training while introducing solo pieces to give them something more interesting to play. Starting from a strong foundation will allow the student to progress much faster and helps keep them from getting discouraged. I like to tailor the lessons to each student. Some students might become bored if you move to slowly and others can become discouraged if you move to fast. I believe it is extremely important to work with the student and find a pace that works best for them. Regardless of age and skill level I always work to make lessons fun, interesting and engaging.

LESSON STYLE

The most rewarding thing as a teacher is passing on my love of music to my students. Music is one of the most important things in my life and has opened me up to the world. Because of music I have met people from all walks of life and that has helped me to become a more loving and compassionate person. Lessons should be a safe, fun and encouraging space for students to grow not only as musicians but as people. I always work to challenge my students and keep them engaged without becoming discouraged. This comes from individualized lessons that are designed to provide each student the tools and environment they need to progress.

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.
