a few kind words


Eric’s workshops bring the beauty of the arts, the power of the human spirit, and the hope of seers, poets and songsters from around the world and throughout the ages to every workshop and performance. It is the blending of these great forces that gives their work its unique quality.

On the few occasions I have worked with OHF Workshops, they have never failed to amaze me with their omni presence of unity and diversity and each time I have seen the profound effect their musical gifts bestow on every- one. Their workshops address realistic subjects and issues that are currently challenging people. I have never been disappointed with any of their programs.

Rousing Music!

Laurel Graeber, New York Times

As a member of the Ulladulla High School Parents and Citizens Association, I had the great pleasure of organizing a workshop for senior students at the school led by the inimitable Eric Dozier. It is no mean feat to walk in to a roomful of teens of mixed musical ability – and attitude - and hold them captive for 90 minutes. Eric did that, and then some! Part history lesson, part music lesson, Eric’s session helped these students forge a deep connection with the songs and with the power of their own voices. He struck the right balance in being both demanding and inspiring. He lifted them up. Under his astute instruction, they worked hard for him and for each other - to create something moving, meaningful, uplifting.”
