Erik has won many awards, including the 2010 Gerda Lissner International Competition, Wagner Division, the 2008 American Wagner, and St. Bonaventura awards from the Liederkranz competition. He was a 2002 and 2003 winner of the Friedrich Schorr Vocal Competition. Erik has fifteen years’ teaching experience with all voice types, abilities, ages, and styles. He has been a student of master teacher Braeden Harris for over ten years, and his philosophy of teaching is that all singing and song interpretation is organic and comes from good tone, no matter the style. His performance experiences allow him to help students focus not only on voice but on performance, style, and technique. Erik’s studio is currently full.
