Whatever your level of musical experience, I can help you learn to create music. You can learn music theory, songwriting, harmony, counterpoint, instrumentation, notation— all the essential skills you need to be a composer, make your own music, and learn how music works.

In composition and songwriting lessons, I work directly with you to develop a personalized plan of study that’s exactly right for your own interests and goals. We’ll work on the techniques you need to find your own musical voice, whether you’re interested in writing classical art music, making modern electronic tracks, or just having fun.

About Dr. Eric

I hold a doctorate in music composition from the University of Maryland. My compositions have been published and performed by ensembles around the world. (See my full bio, or read some Reviews and Testimonials. Or hear some of my music!)

For over ten years, I’ve helped students of all ages and skill levels, from preschoolers to university composition majors, learn music theory, songwriting, composition, harmony, and ear training. My students have gone on to write their own pop songs, classical compositions, indie albums, electronic music, game soundtracks, and full-length stage productions.
