Eli has been been a professional touring and studio musician for over 15 years and has had the pleasure of traveling internationally and performing many styles of music with many different people.
Growing up in a musical household resulted in an early start to Eli’s musical career. It allowed him to become a studio and live drummer at the age of 14, and has been performing and recording ever since.
Selected for the Pennsylvania Governor’s School for the Arts in high school he then continued his musical education by attaining a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from The Cincinnati College Conservatory of music.
Eli Has been Teaching for over 15 years and is always looking forward to teaching new students how to be a better musician.

· Music Theory · In home Very patient and fun to work with!
· · Eli has been awesome. My son is really enjoying his lessons and feels so happy with his progress every week. Eli obviously has skills AND he knows how to share them. We couldn't be happier.
· · Very good with young children
My son is 4 years old and has only had two sessions with Eli however, he does a very good job of communicating with him on his level and keeping his focus. He also has given him practice exercises which seem to do the trick.
