Eric “Sparky” Parker began playing guitar at age 13 when his uncle gave him a hand-me-down guitar for Christmas. 12 years later, music remains Eric’s passion! He currently plays guitar in three Houston based bands and plays gigs around the Houston area quite regularly.
In the first couple of years of playing guitar, Eric took lessons from a great teacher by the name of Matt Underwood, where he learned a lot about music theory and guitar technique. Years later, he discovered his passion for teaching others what he has learned. He is currently studying Audio Recording Technology at Houston Community College.
Eric has been teaching private guitar lessons for a couple of years now and enjoys passing on his knowledge in a fun, relaxed way. His main area of expertise is rock and blues guitar, but he can play and teach in many styles.
