Eric W. (In Studio Only)

 

Steeped in improvised jazz tradition, Eric Weiden is a trumpet player and pianist who has spent decades pursuing identity in sound. After leaving Indiana University in the mid nineties, he spent years touring: as a big band member (Tommy Dorsey Orchestra & Guy Lombardo); and, with multiple Broadway musical U.S. national tours. Eric also performed and/or recorded with Calexico, Giantsand, the Abramson Singers, as well as many jazz and rock bands in western Canada. His trumpet teachers have included Dominic Spera (Indiana University jazz trumpet instructor), Bobby Shew (L.A. studio session player), Mark Van Cleave (lead trumpet with The Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra) and John Rommel (principal trumpet with The Nashville Symphony).

Eric has taught private trumpet and beginner piano lessons for around 20 years. Trumpet students have included casual and semi-pro adult students, casual school-aged students, school aged-students who have been selected for national honor bands, as well as young beginner students. His piano students have included young children from age three up to adult beginners as well as family lessons where parents and children learn together. Eric has taught many school clinics for jr. and sr. high students. Also, Eric completed a Masters in Arts Education at SFU, and taught middle school students at a Montessori school for five years.

Eric is also currently a lecturer at Concordia University teaching early childhood music education courses and helping to develop our future k-6 school teachers. 

Eric offers in your home piano, trumpet, bass, guitar and production lessons through Classic Studios.
