Eric was born into a musical family. His father is an accomplished pianist and music historian, and mom plays the radio. He grew up in Chicago, then he later lived in London, England. He then moved back to Chicago and has traveled to Europe and Central America. Eric seeks to bring his life and music experiences into his playing and teaching. Given a great set of ears, and an unending enthusiasm for all things great and musical, he brings an intensity into everything he does - working, teaching, learning and performing. Eric has been with Breaking Grounds in Music since early 2012. In addition to teaching, he helps lead worship at MCF church, and has formed his own original project – NOMADIC. Covering multiple styles, techniques, and philosophy, Eric aims to guide and direct others to be the best guitar player, musician, and person they can be.
