I am a dedicated teacher whom loves to help students develop their musical skills in both technique and expression. I have experience with many methods for horn, and will work to find the music which will be the most helpful for the student's improvement.
I also have a great deal of experience in dealing with braces and other orthodontia work as I had extensive orthodontic work done in high school, but was able to overcome this obstacle to keep playing horn.
I can also help with extended techniques for horn (flutter tonguing, stopped horn, and half-valve)

My name is Eric, and I eagerly await getting a chance to work with you! Teaching music is one of the most enjoyable things I do, and I hope to instill the same passion for music in my students that I have!
I have both my bachelor's and master's degrees in music, and I will start working on my doctorate in music in the Fall of 2019.
I have performed with a wide variety of ensembles, including concert bands, wind ensembles, orchestras, brass quintets, and woodwind quintets. Notable examples include the Quincy Symphony Orchestra, Celestial Winds, and the Chicagoland Educator's Orchestra.
I have worked as a freelance horn player since I finished my bachelor's degree. I have performed in many different ensembles, including the Chicagoland Educator's Orchestra, the Elmhurst College Philharmonic, the Student's Own Brass Quintet, The Quincy Community Theater, and the 12th Street Brass.Show More
During the 2018-2019 school year, other students and I formed a woodwind quintet and performed two major recitals during the school year.
I performed as a regular member of the Quincy Symphony Orchestra horn section.
I taught 4th grade recorders, 5th grade beginning band, 6th grade band, 7/8th grade band, and high school band.
Since 1970, The International Horn Society (IHS) has been an organization of people from around the world drawn together with a mutual interest in the horn. We are dedicated to the performance, teaching, composition, research, preservation, and promotion of the horn as a musical instrument.Show More
