  • After graduating from the University of Denver's Lamont School of Music with a Bachelor's degree in Music Education with an emphasis on classical string bass, Eric taught preschool music for two years before starting a solo career performing for kids and families. Playing guitar, banjo and several other acoustic instruments, along with writing his own material and collecting other songs, he has worked to make music fun, sometimes silly and accessible to all. Many of his instruments are homemade from repurposed junk, including a pasta pot guitar, "€œpan-jo"€ and several percussion instruments made from pan lids. Homemade limber jacks (dancing wooden puppets) are a part of every performance, as is a lot of audience participation!
