Eric Aaron is always seeking to learn more through his roles as a performer, educator, and leader. He is entering his senior year at the University of Maryland in pursuit of a dual degree in horn performance and music education. In early 2020, he had the opportunities to play principal horn at the 2020 College Band Directors National Association Eastern (CBDNA-E) Conference, as well as for a conducting symposium under the baton of wind conductor H. Robert Reynolds. Outside of performing, Eric is growing a young private brass studio and serving as a horn coach at a local high school. Eric also serves on the board of the Terrapin Record Label and his collegiate chapter of the National Association for Music Education. As lockdown restrictions lift, he is looking forward to eating at restaurants and traveling again!
