Meet New Mozart's distinguished faculty - Dr. Eric K.
Eric Kujawsky is the founder and Music Director of Redwood Symphony, now in its 31st season (and, for most concerts, free for children). A conductor of far-ranging abilities, Dr. K has garnered acclaim for interpretations of works from every stylistic period and genre, with a special affinity for works of the 20th and 21st centuries. As a musician, Dr. K has performed as a member of orchestras, jazz bands, rock bands and choirs. Active as a music educator, he taught in the public schools for 25 years and has taught violin, viola, clarinet and saxophone privately for over 30 years. He has additionally taught at Notre Dame de Namur University and Canada College. His philosophy is that instilling a love of music is the most important step in ensuring that a student will become a lifelong musician, whether amateur or professional--and that parents play an important part in instilling that love.
Dr. K received Doctorate in Conducting from Stanford. His teachers have included Samuel Krachmalnick, Paul Vermel and Andor Toth. He has performed with the Aspen Music Festival, several Bay Area orchestras and choruses, and with TheatreWorks in Palo Alto, Ramshead Productions at Stanford, and the Cañada College Drama Department. Dr. K made his Davies Symphony Hall debut with Redwood Symphony and the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus in June of 1996. He is equally at home with symphony, opera, musical comedy or jazz, and is recognized as one of the Bay Area's foremost conductors.
Dr. K teaches violin, viola, clarinet, and saxophone. He has worked with young beginners to accomplished professional musicians.
