Anna Popek, Music colleague and former piano student

”I started with Erik as a piano teacher. Through his lessons i’ve learned things that I can use in my piano playing even today. He adapted the lessons to me, my level and what I wanted to learn. But he also weaved in new ways to play, new techniques and challenges that made my develop my playing a lot. Now, when the years of regular lessons has ended we have worked together at live gigs, and have also been writing music together. He is a really good partner and I choose him all days of the week for advice regarding my piano playing, or if I need a steady pianist by my side on the stage.”
