About Eric Guerin
Hi there! I enjoy spreading the gospel of ukulele as a member of the faculty at Apple Tree Arts, leading monthly jams at the library and at events throughout the Southern Worcester County area. I fell in love with the sound of the ukulele when I first heard Israel Kamakawiwoʻole’s medley rendition of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow/What a Wonderful World”. It was the song my wife and I shared our first dance to at our wedding in 2003. In 2016 I took a free introduction to ukulele class at my public library. The size and simplicity of the four strings on the uke attracted me. About four years ago I started experimenting with the tenor guitar which is a four-stringed instrument that can be tuned similarly to the baritone ukulele. Fast forward to today and I am teaching those same community outreach classes at libraries through Apple Tree Arts!
Beyond the ukulele and tenor guitar, I am a husband to my talented and smart wife Leah Bearce Guerin, and a dad to two boys who never cease to amaze me every single day. I am a creative director, animator, wordsmith, and online marketing geek by day. For more about my marketing experience and background, you can visit my LinkedIn profile
