Elodie Caselli studied harp with Emma Consolini at the Conservatorio Giovanni Battista Martini in Bologna, Italy. After graduation she started her career as a harpist participating in various concertos in Italy and France. In 1892, Eduard Wachmann (1836-1908), rector of the Bucharest Conservatory requested her to come to Bucarest to teach harp. At the beginning she took the assignment free of charge, but later was appointed professor at the Conservatory. She also developed the first program for teaching harp at the Conservatory.
