Although widely recognized as a flutist and composer of several hundred works for flute, Schocker is also a pianist and harpist. He began piano at age three, under the tutelage of his father and took up the flute at 10, continuing his studies on both instruments at The Juilliard School. He began teaching himself to play the harp in 2011.  As a composer, Schocker is also self-taught. His Scherzo for flute and piano was his first publication (1975). He has since composed over 1100 pieces, including more than 300 for harp. His Yi Jing for harp and chamber orchestra had its premiere with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra in 2019.
