Eddie took private lessons off and on during high school and played in local bands all over the Orange County area. Right after high school, Eddie moved to L.A. to attend Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA. Having completed the G.I.T. program at M.I. Eddie received his AA in guitar performance. Shortly after MI, Eddie began teaching and during summer would embark on extensive U.S. Tours.
