He graduated from the University of Western Australia in 2002 with a Bachelor of Music, majoring in Classical Composition, and in 2004 he graduated with a Diploma of Jazz Studies majoring on the Double Bass.

He has played Double Bass in numerous jazz settings including big bands, quartets and smaller ensembles, as well as in Classical Orchestras.

...I'd highly recommend Horizon School of Music to anyone who wants to be part of a real music community that cares about your journey and learning.

When I have a lesson with Eli, its more like just jamming with a friend. He allows me to learn what I want to learn, not only what he wants to teach.

My face time lessons are easier than expected and I love that there are different guitar style clinics available so I can learn different genres.

...The co-teaching with Eli on the monthly Metal Consortium has got to be the best metal group class ever to happen. I will close by saying I used to hate Mondays. I have my lessons on Mondays.... it's now my favourite day of the week.
