Eidelman began his formal training in violin at the age of eight and continued with multi-instrument training ranging from piano and guitar in genres such as jazz to classic music in his youth. After studying music at Santa Monica College and the University of Southern California, he scored his first feature film Magdalene in 1989.
His breakthrough composition that catapulted him into stardom was his 1991 dark and choral composition to Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. The composition to the sixth installment of the Star Trek motion picture series was composed by Eidelman at the age of 26.
In the years after, Eidelman continued to compose dramatic and epic scores such as Christopher Columbus: The Discovery. As Eidelman's style of composing changed towards more sentimental and minimalistic scores, so did the films for which he scored.
Eidelman currently resides in Santa Monica, California and continues to score movies.

Famous quotes containing the word career:
“I doubt that I would have taken so many leaps in my own writing or been as clear about my feminist and political commitments if I had not been anointed as early as I was. Some major form of recognition seems to have to mark a womans career for her to be able to go out on a limb without having her credentials questioned.”
—Ruth Behar (b. 1956)
“Clearly, society has a tremendous stake in insisting on a womans natural fitness for the career of mother: the alternatives are all too expensive.”
—Ann Oakley (b. 1944)
“What exacerbates the strain in the working class is the absence of money to pay for services they need, economic insecurity, poor daycare, and lack of dignity and boredom in each partners job. What exacerbates it in upper-middle class is the instability of paid help and the enormous demands of the career system in which both partners become willing believers. But the tug between traditional and egalitarian models of marriage runs from top to bottom of the class ladder.”
—Arlie Hochschild (20th century)
