About this pro

Any instrument can play the melody!

I specialize in brass instruments - trumpet, horn, trombone, euphonium (baritone), and tuba.

I have taught band for 25 years and still love it! Being a euphonium player, I know that young low brass players are often not challenged or engaged by their band music.

So, take lessons to play MELODIES, choose music YOU like, and move at your OWN PACE (rather than the average pace of your band)!

    My family had an excellent experience with Eric Grush as my son's euphonium instructor. Due to Eric's excellent teaching skills and encouragement, my son was able to take his playing skills to a much higher level and, as a result, was able to audition for, and make, All District and All State Bands and the Triangle Youth Brass Band.

    I loved learning from Mr. Grush!! He’s a super kind and helpful teacher, I can already see improvements in my euphonium playing when I go to band class. I highly recommend Mr. Grush!!

    Eric is a great man and teacher. He has been a positive light though many students life. His teaching style and musical skills are the best.
