He has collaborated with numerous solo musicians and performing groups including Classical Revolution Northern Colorado and the Harvest Trio of the University of Nebraska, Omaha, and Platte Valley High School.  His music has been performed at conferences and new music festivals, including the Florida State University Festival of New Music and the Aquila Summer Concert Series of Contemporary Music.   

Eric holds a Doctor of Musical Arts in Composition degree from Boston University, and a Bachelor of Music Composition from The University of Colorado, Boulder.  He has studied composition with Lukas Foss, Richard Cornell, Charles Fussell, Richard Toensing, Louis Gonzalez, and Ladislav Kubik.  Eric has been teaching music composition and theory, and co-directing the annual Open Space Festival of New Music at the University of Northern Colorado, since 2011.  His courses include: applied composition lessons, Aural Skills levels I-IV, Theory levels I-IV, Form and Analysis, Instrumentation, and Seminar in Music Composition. Previously he taught music theory and aural skills at Boston University, and was assistant to the composition program at Boston University Tanglewood Institute.  His teaching and research interests include music theory pedagogy, twentieth and twenty-first century music, and form in music.
