Education is one of the most important ways that musicians give back to their communities and help foster new generations of musicians. Teaching can take the form of private lessons, classroom teaching, masterclasses, and mentorship. Eli Uttal-Veroff is committed to the many facets of educating, and the proliferation of music education.
Mr. Uttal-Veroff honed his craft during his education at Butler University, where he completed a B.A. in Music, and at the Eastman School of Music, from which he received a M.M in Jazz Studies and Contemporary Media. The dichotomy between the two schools couldn’t be starker, and helped him thoroughly understand the process that a student goes through from picking up an instrument to university studies. He also gained the knowledge base necessary to be an effective teacher, both privately and in classroom situations.

As an educator, Uttal-Veroff has taught in classroom environments at the Eastman School of Music and the Eastman Community Music School. He has also coached small and large ensembles at the Butler Community Arts School, The Richard Davis Bass Conference, The Golden Gate Bass Camp, and The Fingerlakes Chamber Music Camp. Likewise he has led improvisation classes and sectionals in many different situations. Eli has taught privately in Indianapolis, IN and Rochester, NY. He is available for lessons or master classes locally or via Skype.
