#4: Eli Bishop - Fiddling, Touring, and World Record Clapping
Eli Bishop grew up in Nashville, TN. Being the son of a Suzuki violin teacher, it was only natural that he took up the violin at the young age of 3. Studying the Suzuki method of violin, Eli learned to develop his aural skills and reading ability early on in life. Though he studied classical music for most of his life, his mother and father always exposed him to other forms of music. From the age of 3 until 11, Eli studied the Suzuki violin method. After completing the eighth book of the method, he began studying traditional classical music under the instruction of Cornelius Heard at the Blair School of Music, which was part of Vanderbilt University. Under Connie Heard’s instruction, Eli learned to play standard classical violin repertoire. At the age of 16, Eli’s interests shifted from classical to western swing. At this point, Eli began studying with Nashville legend, Buddy Spicher and spent the next year mastering western swing music. Eli spent the next few years of high school focusing intensely on jazz improvisation and learning the standard repertoire of the style. He got connected into the small jazz violin scene. Spending time in the community, he learned that several of the better players were students at the Berklee College of Music. Even a couple of the instructors he had run in to were Berklee faculty. Eli attended the Berklee College of Music from 2010-2012 studying Violin Performance and Electronic Production & Design.
