Eric teaches at his studio in Poughkeepsie, NY as well as The Dutchess Community College Music School, Trinity Pawling School in Pawling, NY and The Millbrook School, Millbrook, NY.

Lessons are prepared based on individual desires and needs, i.e. if you are an adult looking for serious drum study or just a hobby for fun, or you are a student who needs structure and guidance, Eric loves teaching in many different ways, everyone is different so there are many successful approaches to teaching and making it fun for all. Learn how to read and perform all styles including rock, latin, jazz, rudimental snare drum, etc...Learn proper technique to achieve maximum speed, fluidity, and relaxation. Students get a full multi-media approach to learning drums that allows them to enhance their musical progress by taking advantage of modern day technologies. Practicing with computerized drum machines in musical ways to help develop phrasing, accuracy, simulate a performance atmosphere, as well as the most important aspect...a crucial time feel. Eric will record your lessons, Video or Audio, at your request and you can take it home with you on your flash drive or cd/dvd. Practice with educational cds as well as cds of artists of all styles and genres which allows you to apply what you are learning to a simulated performance. Eric will expose you to a history of the drum set and the great drummers be it through recordings, literature, or the occasional video which is invaluable for inspiration. NYSSMA, All-County, All-State, college auditions, school & recreational band auditions, and scholarship preparations are available and welcome. Full Studio with two acoustic drum sets, one electronic drum set, and lots of toys/percussion.
