My name is Eric. I am a musician and a composer. I am a graduate of the University of Utah with a Bachelors Degree in Music Composition. I studied with Henry Wolking, Head of the Jazz Department, and Miguel Chuaqui, Head of the Composition Department at the University of Utah. I am also a graduate of North Bennet Street School in Boston Massachusetts. I earned my degree in Advanced Piano Technology; this includes piano tuning, repairing, and rebuilding. In 2009 I was hired by Lee Groberg and Mark Goodman (2 very well-known LDS movie producers) to compose and produce the score for the movie entitled "The Measure of a Man; The story of Charles Coulsen Rich, Apostle of God." It was basically a history of his adult life. The music mainly consisted of classical repertoire, with some small jazz inserts. I used a string orchestra, woodwind quartet, a piano, guitar, and bass guitar. In 2008 I produced my first CD entitled "Sing Allelu," which is a compilation of well-known Christmas music arranged for the piano, with two original Christmas pieces. Two of the pieces, "We Three Kings," and "I'll be home for Christmas/I saw three ships" were played on the radio for two consecutive years. I am accustomed to composing on paper, and on the computer. I use Sibelius IV on my Apple Computer. I really enjoy composing music, it is something I feel very comfortable doing, and would enjoy tutoring other musicians in their compositions.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I am a graduate of the University of Utah in Music Composition. I worked closely with Henry W., Head of the Jazz Department, and Miguel Ch., Head of the Composition Department. As a student I composed music for varying sizes and styles of orchestration. One of my Senior pieces, "Incomplacency," was written for a woodwind quartet, and a string quintet. Composing music offers a freedom and satisfaction that cannot be found elsewhere. I have had instructors that have been more restrictive and binding in terms of creativity and talent. My students would be given a broad range of ground upon which to explore their own musical tastes and talents. A typical lesson is given in which the student is given information or ideas on how to compose music with any applicable music theory or genres. The student is encouraged to explore his/her tastes and talents within the field. Music composition is a means of personal expression and accomplishment. The student is intended to achieve sense of accomplishment and pride as he/she learns how to compose music.
I have had a great deal of piano instruction throughout my life. I am a graduate of North Bennet Street School in Boston Massachusetts in Advanced Piano Technology, and from the University of Utah in Music Composition. My teaching style is one in which the student can explore a variety of piano instruction styles to find one that best fits their needs. I would start the student out with a mixture of classical and modern piano pieces. These pieces would be analyzed from a theory standpoint to teach the student more about music structure and form. It is the student's opportunity to progress at a rate in which the student is most comfortable. I will always give the student a repertoire to play that is more challenging than his/her current playing level to inspire them to keep practicing.
