About Eric L.

Hi there!

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 am have just finished my second year working towards my doctorate in music!

Before entering graduate school, I served as a band director for two years. Since entering graduate school, I have been the instructor of horn for the Western Illinois University Summer Music Institute, and I currently teach private horn lessons to a variety of undergraduate music students as a part of my graduate teaching assistantship at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

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.

In addition to my performance and teaching experience, I am currently engaged in research about the construction of instruments that are the precursors to modern brass instruments. I have received funding from two separate grants provided by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and have already presented my research at the UNL Husker Horn Day, and at the Western Illinois University Horn Festival.
