Eric Powers-President

Musical Director-Drums and Percussion.

 

Eric was drawn to drums and percussion at the age of 2.

Eric celebrated the Fourth of July in 2005 by constantly smashing his maraca on my vintage 1983 Stratocaster!

5 years later at Disney World, he used a Jedi Mind Trick and defeated Darth Vader in a duel. Giving his lightsaber and any drumstick he has touched since then "superpowers"

Eric also gave an amazing conga drum performance at Disney for our family.  Totally "in the zone", tongue hanging out like Michael Jordan!

He then continued his musical adventure by playing drums in the Concert Band at Holbrook Road Elementary School in Centereach, NY.

Then when we moved to Florida in 2014 he joined the Concert Performance Band at Wellington Landings Middle School. While at Landings on snare drum and percussion he and his band achieved the highest "Superior" ratings for their performance in the Palm Beach County Solo & Ensemble Musical Performance Assessment, (MPA).

Upon graduation, Eric enrolled at Wellington High School and joined the WHS Marching Band, the "Mighty Wolverine Sound". His freshman year he handled the bass drum while continuing to play snare for Solo & Ensemble MPA's. For his current sophomore year, he has moved back to the snare drum for the Drum Line.

Eric is looking forward to another successful year with the "Mighty Wolverine Sound" and their trip to New York City this year, to play in the St. Patrick's Day Parade.  Eric loves NYC as he grew up on Long Island and spent many days there exploring the city with his family and friends.

His 10+ years of drum and percussion training will translate to an energized, rewarding experience for your child.  He is a very patient teacher and explains our curriculum in a very user-friendly fashion 🙂
