I teach all levels of students (beginner, intermediate and advanced) with customized lessons adapted to the goals of each student. I create and share an enjoyable learning environment during my private lessons given into your home in the Montreal area.
My method of teaching is simple, fun and progressive. The key to my teaching approach is building on your own personal and intuitive musical playing abilities. I make sure that my students do play music, however simple it might be, right from the beginning. Your progress is achieved step by step with accurate and effectively stimulating results towards defined goals.
Since playing music with a guitar or ukulele is based on your capacity to coordinate your two hands and ten fingers to keep rhythmic paces and patterns for expressing, creating or accompanying melodies within an intended harmony structure, I make sure that my students clearly understand and implement this threefold process (rhythm, melody and harmony) as they grow musically.
My expertise is fingerstyle and I do also play and teach various pick styles of playing for all levels. I developed a unique and special approach for applying different techniques, learning standard music theory and sight-reading, and preventing injuries for guitar and ukulele playing.
I am an accomplished guitarist, singer and ukulelist who has been playing, performing and studying various styles of music for more than forty years now. I also have been teaching music on a part-time basis for 30 years. I recently decided to become a full time private music teacher for both guitar and ukulele instrumental playing and accompaniment of singing.

FIRST LESSON (45 MIN FREE EVALUATION - TOTAL POSSIBLE OF 90 MIN) – OTHER LESSONS ARE PAYABLE IN ADVANCE
The first forty-five (45) minutes EVALUATION lesson is always free of charge. Éric will usually offer a first free evaluation lesson and a first paid lesson together for a total duration time of ninety (90) minutes for the first lesson under the following conditions: (a) The first free lesson portion of forty-five (45) minutes will allow Éric to evaluate the needs and goals of the student. There is no obligation for any student to take future paid lessons after the first free evaluation lesson. (b) For students over 18 years old when they confirm that they want to go on with the learning process after the first free evaluation lesson of forty-five (45) minutes, Éric will then usually recommend that they join both their first free and first paid lessons together to take a first lesson for a total time of ninety (90) minutes. The second forty-five (45) minutes portion of the first lesson is then payable on the same day in cash with a receipt issued by Éric. Students over 18 years old are therefore asked to reserve a time availability of ninety (90) minutes for their first lesson. (c) For students under 18 years old, a first lesson totalling ninety (90) minutes of duration time can also be taken under the same conditions when Éric is verbally or by writing expressly authorized to do so in advance by their parents. NOTE: All lessons after the first lesson are payable in advance when booking to reserve a specific time and day for one or more future lessons. Only payments by checks, bank transfer or in cash are accepted.
