The uptight bass is my main instrument. I was lucky to study with maestro Michael Klinghoffer, and my teaching goes by his book "drive a double bass". In addition, for those who are interested in jazz, I teach different aspects of the jazz bass. In my career I have collaborated with top jazz musicians, and I'm happy to share what I know.

About Ehud E.

My name is Ehud, I've been combining a teaching and performance career for the past few years. I'm a bassist, composer and band leader and I hold a M.M from the New England Conservatory and a B.M from the Jerusalem Music Academy. In my teaching, I work with students in order on the skills that are required to be a musician, and be able to use music as a language. I enjoy teaching very much, and love seeing how my students make progress and develop.

Ehud is very knowledgeable of his profession and patient with my 7 year old boy. Ehud is very patient and flexible when needed, he has tremendous approach and goes right to the point when teaching. I can see my son's improvement week to week. I would recommend him to all students at any age and any level. Best of all he comes to teach my son right at our music room in our house.

Best teacher ever! That guy takes the time to explain in the best way how to play different techniques and styles, very informative and the best part is- you can take the lesson from the comfort of your home! He gives lessons through Skype and next thing you know you are a professional musician! Highly recommended!

I offer these observations on behalf of Ehud E. not as his student, but
rather as an appreciative listener--from a very unusual vantage point. I had
the great privilege of hearing one of the world's greatest bassists, Dave
Holland perform live with Miles Davis, as well as Chick Correa. Notably,
it is Holland with whom Ehud studied in a Master Class. I am doubly blessed
now to be able to continue hearing another of the world's greatest bassists,
Ehud E.--in various live performances.
It bears mentioning that having seen Ehud perform for audiences of
all ages, he has that rare ability to teach us as individuals not only to play our
instruments better, but to be better listeners, as well. He doesn't merely
'perform' for his audience members; he communicates with each of them
intimately, in his own, unique dialect of the universal language of music.
I can only imagine the joy of being his student--and the gift of being
able to witness one's own musicality come alive in the moment, while learning
at his side.
