One Question Interviews: The Chairman Dances

Eric Kreson (The Chairman Dances)

SPB: How old were you when you first learned an instrument?   

Kreson: I was in fourth grade, so about ten years old, when I began trumpet lessons at my public school. I kept playing regularly through college. My first years of lessons were, unwittingly, my introduction to music theory, melody, harmony, and (music) history. I'm the songwriter for The Chairman Dances and, in that role, I most often sing and play guitar, though a number of our arrangements include trumpet (played by me). The Chairman Dances probably would not exist had I not studied trumpet.
