In addition to currently being a drum professor at the University of Illinois-Chicago, he is an instructor for the Jazz Institute of Chicago, Orbert Davis' MusicAlive, Gallery 37 (a division of The Thelonious Monk Institute) and a Ravinia Jazz Mentor. The MusicAlive and the Ravinia program allows Ernie to go into Chicago's inner-city schools to tutor young drummers and percussionists to prepare them for professional gigs as well as impart on the lessons in life skills.

The Addams Family [Hide All]

THE ADDAMS FAMILY, a comical feast that embraces the wackiness in every family, features an original story and it’s every father’s nightmare: Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family– a man her parents have never met. And if that wasn’t upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before– keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.
