About Eric
I am by trade a musician who specializes in drums and drum education. I have played as a professional musician in the Salt Lake City, UT, and greater Los Angeles, CA, areas. My project involvement ranges from hip hop, metal, jazz, funk, blues, indie, reggae/ska, rock, pop, fusion, singer/songwriter, and electronica.

I instruct private lessons and workshop sessions to students of all ages, including those with varying levels of experience. I have also expanded my knowledge base by being included on tracks and albums of many professionally recorded albums.

I am a graduate of the Musicians
Institute college of contemporary music in Hollywood, CA, with a performance degree for drums and percussion.

Eric is great. He is so positive, makes my son feels good about himself and his ability to learn the drums. He is punctual, prepared, and enthusiatic. He's a great teacher.

I have had a handful of lessons, only, but recognize that Eric is a very good instructor. His instruction is geared around me and my pace and provides relevant material to help me along the journey of learning a new instrument.

I have over 13 years experience teaching people of all ages from 6 to 60 years of age. Some of my teaching included at a local music school/store as well as a national music studio. I am very good at starting first time drummers out on the right path for learning to play the drums. I teach my different styles and concepts. I am very patient and understanding when it comes to teaching. I am very focused on keeping lessons fun.

About David
David graduated from the Phillips Jr. College in Salt Lake City, UT to receive an Associates degree in 1994 for Business Management. He began playing drums at seventeen, and soon after studied under a professional instructor and musician for 2 years. He continued to study at Brighton Music for 4 years, learning to fine tune his technique and dynamics, studying jazz. Soon after, David began performing professionally in bands for rock, pop and Jazz, and started teaching part time. In 2004, David began teaching privately and at a local music school. He offers rock, linear playing, shuffles, fus
ion drumming, double bass, funk drumming, Latin styles, jazz, independence, snare drum studies, and stick control. I teach all levels from beginning to advanced. I care about my students, and want the best for them. I will always try to keep lessons fun. I will not hesitate to go the extra mile for students when learning to play the drums, even if that means spending extra quality time with them.

I've been teaching and playing drums for over 15 years. I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of skills to help with their musical journey. I typically use the books, "Realistic Rock" and "Stick Control". I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!
