My Music. My Story: Eric Salazar

Children dream, children hope. As a child, imagination is wild and anything can come from it.  Soaring through the air on a park’s swing set can cause you to dream about becoming an astronaut and flying to the moon one day or sculpting a sandcastle can spur excitement about growing up to become an architect. For young Eric Salazar, watching Tom and Jerry as a kid inspired him to become a musician. The fast-paced animated cat andmouse game captivated him by the melody of the clarinet in show’s musical score and he thought, “That! I want to do that!”

Eric says, “Tom and Jerry uses a lot of classical music in the background. I remember hearing all of the classics like Liszt’s Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2, Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite, Wagner’s Ride of the Valkyries, and the list goes on and on.”
