I am a Senior Tenor Trombone Performance Major at Indiana University Jacobs School of Music. I also play bass trombone, alto trombone, euphonium, and bass trumpet extensively. While at IU, I have performed as Principal Trombone in multiple orchestras and wind ensembles, including operatic productions and Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker. I have also performed with award winning chamber groups and jazz bands. These ensemble experiences have broadened my abilities and knowledge of the trombone, and I hope I can teach some of these things to you. In the past, I have taught many levels of trombonists, including beginners and high school players that have gone on to major in trombone performance at high level music schools, like the Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music. Whatever age and background you come from, I believe anyone can become a successful musician. I have also studied improvisation from incredible jazz musicians, so I can cater to any interests that you have as a player, whether it's classical, jazz, movie soundtracks, hip-hop, commercial, or any other genres of music. My goal as a teacher is to introduce you to a wide variety of playing styles and help you hone in your technique so you can enjoy making any type of music. I am happy to drive out to your house or find a location to meet for lessons. I look forward to meeting you and teaching you the art of trombone playing!

Erich is an energetic teacher and a true professional. He helped my son improve his tone within minutes of his guidance. It was especially helpful to hear him play during the lesson, so you can hear the desired tone of the trombone. Erich sent me an email summary of the lesson to recap the lesson highlights, I was very impressed with this addition to detail! I highly recommend Erich as a fun, patient, and wise teacher.
