Eric teaches beginner through advanced piano and percussion, and beginner guitar out of two base studios: his home studio in northern Albemarle County (Barboursville/Stony Point area), and his church studio in the city of Charlottesville, near UVA (percussion limited at church studio). Additionally, Eric will travel to you (convenience fee added) if you prefer the comfort of your own home. Eric's wife Sarah has limited availability for new voice students in her studio. Please fill out the contact form here for information on all lesson offerings.
30-minute, 45-minute, and 60-minute lessons are available. Eric generally recommends one 30-minute lesson once per week for most beginning students. Short-term lessons are also available for students preparing for auditions or performances.
All students have the option of participating in The Royal Conservatory Music Development Program - a recognized national standard and sequenced program for people studying music privately, from beginner through advanced levels. While this is not mandatory, Eric highly encourages each of his students to consider the benefits and potential.
Lessons are paid in advance, per month or per season (academic year and summer). Eric offers several discounts for the 30-minute lesson option (45- and 60-minute lessons are already discounted).
Enrollment is always rolling and students may begin lessons at any point during a season if there are open lesson times available. Once enrolled, there is an obligation to complete the season, unless you have made arrangements for a short-term option.
