Would you like to learn contra dance piano?

Eric Eid-Reiner gives lessons both in the Boston area and in Western Massachusetts.

Eric primarily works with students who have had a year or more of piano playing experience and are looking to branch out into the contra dance and folk accompaniment world.  He’s also happy to work with students who may already have some exposure or experience in the New England, Irish, Scottish, Cape Breton, or French Canadian styles, and would like to work on ideas to incorporate into their playing, getting more comfortable performing, repertoire, melody playing, and more!

Dancers and listening audiences alike have long enjoyed Eric’s innovative piano accompaniment, melody playing, and compositions.  He can be heard performing throughout the Northeast solo, and with the Moving Violations, The Reiner Family Band, and fiddlers including Julie Metcalf, Alden Robinson, David Kaynor, and Andy Reiner.

Celtic Beat Says

"...Eric Eid-Reiner is a genius by virtue of his knowledge, a craftsman supreme by his playing, and an artist by his understanding. Of a musical family, he certainly must have absorbed an enormous amount in his formative years."
