From 2013-2016 Elad served in the IDF with an “outstanding musician” status, as an arranger of music for chamber ensembles.

Elad is a 5-time recipient of AICF scholarships for violin in 2007-2015. In November 2010, Elad won the second prize in a national competition for young composers organized by the Israeli Educational TV Channel and the AICF, for his composition for solo violin which he also performed. In April 2013, Elad received the second prize in the Eran Zoldan national competition for violin and cello.

In 2014, Elad helped establish a music school in a local township, with the mission of making music education accessible for young children there. He is a driving force behind the school gamification approach to musical theory studies and considers improving musical education as one of his main professional goals.
