My name is Eric Hankey, and I've been creating performances with students my whole career. I have bachelors degrees in music performance and music education from Ithaca College, NY, and a masters degree in education from USC. I love to see and hear students learn how to do their very best, and then be able to share it with their community through performance - there's no better job in the world!
