Hi, I'm Elias!
I am a passionate musician and music educator based in Dallas, Texas.
I was previously an artist-in-residence at La Fondation des États-Unis in Paris. I have 19 years of experience in classical music, but I also enjoy improvising, interpreting jazz, Jewish klezmer, Latin American folk, and creating unique, emotive concert experiences.
I have worked internationally as both a teacher and performer. My solo performances have aired on National Public Radio (NPR) and New York's WQXR, and I teach students from beginner to university level in three languages (English, Spanish, and French).
I am happy that you have found my website!
If you are interested in taking lessons (online or in person) or would like to work together, feel free to contact me! If you have attended a live concert or have interacted with me personally (and you enjoyed said encounter, haha), please let myself and others know what you thought by writing a review on my Facebook page!
