Piano, Drums and Guitar

Eric Barlaan is long time music educator, multi-instrumentalist, and church musician. He received his Bachelor’s from San Francisco Conservatory of Music in piano performance, and a diploma in Music Synthesis from Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts.

Eric’s musical fluency ranges from the breadth of choral conducting and classical pipe organ, to melancholy ballads in jazz clubs, then all the way to rock-star vocals and electric guitar. As a professionally trained musician, Eric’s career has developed and grown with his individual students, along with his music instruction in classroom settings within the East Side Union School District.

Eric brings a depth of versatility into the classroom, from his artistic experience from his involvement with the SoFA art community in Downtown San Jose, and with his multiple music tours to Europe and the Far East.

Eric’s teaching style is playful and yet disciplined. We are thrilled to have Eric as part of our strong musician/teachers starting August
