Eric Dorr -  Classical, Jazz, Folk (Beginner to Advanced)

Eric has performed in various rock, folk, jazz, and classical groups for the past 15 years, both through university and on his own.

Has has studied privately and taken masterclasses with dozens of members from the world famous Philadelphia Orchestra as well as the Village Vanguard Jazz Ensemble. His specialty during high school and college was playing lead jazz trumpet, but he is well versed in classical technique and arranging/improvising in jazz/rock styles.

His teaching experience covers a wide range of age, ability, and musical interests. His favorite part of teaching privately is the student-centered path towards musical development and awareness. He loves teaching in both conventional and non-conventional methods. 

He encourages composition, improvisation, and ear training from a very young age, and he is always curious to see what his students will come up with next!
