I focus on the whole person and tailor my teaching to each individual’s needs. My approach is about developing excellent biomechanics and also freeing students to express their feelings, stories, and selves with their audience.

"This workshop has done wonders for my playing, and has opened my eyes to a side of horn playing I didn't know existed. My attacks, intonation, tone quality, and accuracy have improved 100%."
"I had a great experience here, and I loved the group atmosphere--this was a safe space to experiment with ideas and be challenged in my playing."
"A very intense but incredibly helpful experience in which I gained skills I could not have learned anywhere else."
"Mr. Epstein's positive attitude and encouraging teaching style, along with his organized approach to all aspects of the horn, made this an excellent learning experience for me."
"I just wanted to say thanks once more for this wonderful workshop...It really was so inspirational and so wonderful to be part of such a positive and supportive environment...I feel we all were able to take so many more risks--in our "perfection-free zone" --and find out how much more fun and rewarding that is, for both performer and listeners. I'm still amazed by how good it all felt, going back to what it used to and should be like...I received so much more than I ever expected...so much of it in my head and in my heart."
"The MRI presentation not only blew my mind, but also changed my views on how we play the horn."
"Eli used as a teaching point whatever technical aspect a performer's playing brought to light. It was immediately gratifying to hear how corrections which were suggested were immediately helpful."
