Eric obviously enjoys music and wants his students to enjoys it. He knows that I learn best when I enjoy what I'm doing and am motivated to work by that enjoyment. If I struggle with one approach he will use a different one to get to the same end goal.
Eric pushes me to do more than just learn what others may have done, but to improvise and try to make my own parts. He is encouraging even when my fumbling efforts fall far short of my own expectations.

He also has a very keen ear and will teach you the skills you need to develop your ear so that you can jam.
