During the past several years, I've tutored both advanced college students taking Harvard's music theory courses and younger beginners taking the equivalent of AP Music Theory. Whether its total harmony, keyboard skills, post-tonal analysis, ear-training, counterpoint or almost anything else, I'm more than happy to help.

About Elias M.

Hello! My name is Elias, I'm a professional pianist, cellist, and orchestra and opera conductor, and I couldn't be more excited to be taking piano, cello, and conducting students of all ages and levels. No matter what you're hoping to get out of your studies, I couldn't be happier to help you along on your musical journey.

A little about me:
I'm currently the music director of the Apollo Ensemble of Boston and a conducting fellow at Opera Saratoga. I graduated from Harvard College summa cum laude with a B.A. in music in 2016 after transferring there from the Tufts University/New England Conservatory Dual Program. I completed my master's degree in orchestral conducting at the University of Michigan in 2020. As a cellist, I have attended various prestigious music festivals including the Aspen Music Festival and School and the Bowdoin International Music Festival, and I have performed in concerts and masterclasses across the country. As a pianist, I have served as a rehearsal pianist and vocal coach for numerous operatic productions, and I frequently accompany both singers and instrumentalists in recitals, masterclasses, and lessons.

Elias has been my piano teacher for 5 months and a half. He's very kind, patient, methodical and detail oriented. With his continuous help, I went from zero to playing minuets by Bach and Mozart with ease. I also learned to play scales, arpeggios, progressions and a lot of music theories along the way. In my opinion, what sets him apart is not only does he teaches you how to play, but also teaches you how to phrase music with lines, contrasts, crescendos and decrescendos, making "real" music. I really cannot thank him enough for my progress, and I would recommend him to anyone who wants to play great music!
