Picture of Eleazar I.

Eleazar joined The Music Place in 1997. He is a multi-instrumented Phase 2-3 teacher, registered both with the ABRSM and Royal Conservatory. Growing up a musical child prodigy, he began teaching at the age of 13, and has concertized all over both North and South America. Conservatory trained, Eleazar has earned Master's degrees in piano performance, Christian ministry, and music composition. At the prestigious Boston University, while teaching and completing his third Master's degree, his graduate students encouraged and financially contributed to the production of his CD piano recording, Tesora Musical Venezolano, which highlights musical treasures from his native Venezuela. In addition to being an excellent pianist, Eleazar is competent in guitar, ukulele, cello, violin, clarinet, saxophone, and drums. He is also fluent in English, Spanish, and Italian.

Mr. Eleazar has been my teacher for about 8 years now. Each year I can not believe how much he has helped me improve and greaten my love for music. He always starts off class with a big and warm "Hello!!" and that sets the mood for the whole class. I have moved to different instruments three times, piano to guitar to singing, and each time that I mention I want to switch, he is extremely supportive and has vast knowledge on each of this instruments. He has also taught my brother piano and saxophone, and my brother still continues to play in college because of the interest Mr. Eleazar has instilled in him.

Thanks so much for teaching Nolan through the fall, Eleazar! He learned so much and really enjoys playing the clarinet.

"Our daughter, Melissa, loves her music class, and she looks forward to the recitals. She's made friends and become more confident. We'd recommend the Music Place to anyone. -- Melissa's parents, Kathy & Matt, Los Gatos" .

I tell everyone who will listen about the amazing introduction to music that our daughter is getting with the Music Place. People are always amazed when a 3-year old explains that she played an oboe last week and is going to play a piccolo next week! Most importantly, our daughter can't wait for music class & asks to go every day. -- The Pace Family
