Eli has been teaching private and group lessons in the Chicago metropolitan area since 2011. Aside from upright and electric bass, Eli also has teaching and performance experience on guitar, piano, drums, and voice. Eli has experience teaching children as young as four, teenagers, adults, and seniors, as well as children and young adults with special needs.

Eli’s students range from young children whose parents seek the enrichment, intellectual development, and academic benefits inherent in the study of music; older students preparing to enter college intent on pursuing a higher education in music and related fields; and adults seeking to add a new creative dimension to their lives.

Lessons are scheduled on a weekly basis for thirty minutes, forty‑five minutes, or sixty minutes, and are available at his Bridgeport studio or in the student's home. Eli will work with you to develop an individualized program in order to help you achieve your musical goals.
