Erik has been teaching professionally since 2008, and is dedicated to helping his students achieve all of their musical goals.  He knows that everyone learns differently, and believes in tailoring instruction to the specific individual. He loves overcoming challenges and feels nothing is more rewarding than changing a life for the better through music.

Erik's passion for music began at a young age. At only 4 years old he was prancing about in his footed pajamas putting on concerts with pantomimed instruments. Throughout his life he has been a part of many varied solo and group projects. From jazz ensembles and accompanying for vocalists to rock groups and wedding performances. After four years of studying Classical Piano and Music Education at the Metropolitan State College of Denver he decided to use his experience and schooling to pass his enthusiasm on to others.
