I am currently accepting students for guitar, piano, bass guitar and yoga! Teaching is in my blood. I am a musician, composer and educator. My father is a visual artist and educator, and my mother is a yoga instructor, nutritionist, and (you guessed it), an educator! Music: I started my musical journey at the ripe age of three and a half when my mother brought me to a piano teacher on a farm in rural Western Pennsylvania. I continued to take private lessons until my high school graduation, at which point I had also become proficient on the guitar and bass and had begun playing gigs around the city of Pittsburgh. During my college years at Kent State University I received credits in world music and jazz improvisation, and spent most of my time playing original music with groups across Ohio and Pennsylvania. In the years following, I have devoted my time to deepening my knowledge of the guitar, the piano and musical composition, honing my skills with mentors, peers and any other fellow musicians I come across (Denver has a lot of them). The rest of my free time goes toward outdoor adventures and concerts! Over the past 14 years I've filled many different musician and composer roles in many different bands with genres spanning across rock, jazz, funk, blues, jam/psychedelic, and folk/country. I've been privileged to live in Pennsylvania, Ohio, North Carolina, Oregon, California and Colorado, and immerse myself in the music of all of these wonderful places. I've got a wealth of information to share and I hope you'll join me on the journey! Yoga: I got my start in yoga asana practice by shadowing at my mother's classes at age 18. Since then I've developed a yoga, breathwork and meditation routine that I practice on a daily basis. I specialize in Vinyasa yoga, with some knowledge of Yin yoga and restorative techniques. My greatest strength as an instructor is my ability to explain proper form and breathing in a way that moves with the flow of the class. Eli

Eli is awesome! Very approachable and flexible - yes that's a yoga pun but seriously flexible in course/plan, too. Professional and down to Earth ☆☆☆☆☆
Eli is super knowledgeable. I had a number of mini breakthroughs after sitting behind the keyboard with him and talking about theory
Not only is Eli an incredible, patient, encouraging, and informative teacher but his musicality depth, which he shares during lessons, illustrates his passion and skills as a musician.
