From 1920 to 1940, Eller was a professor of music theory and composition at the Tartu Higher School for Music, during which time he formed the Tartu school of composition which gave rise to many composers, including Eduard Tubin. In 1940, he became a professor of composition at the Tallinn Conservatory, and taught there until his death in 1970.

He was named a People's Artist of the USSR in 1967. Eller was a legendary composition teacher. The school he formed in Tartu counterbalanced to so-called Tallinn school headed by Artur Kapp. Eller’s pedagogical talent is versatile. The list of his pupils offers the best proof of it - each of them have created distinguished original style. Eller composed primarily instrumental music.

His symphonic works, especially Koit and Videvik break new ground for Estonian symphonic music. His musical language contains a lot of national traits, but his mind was opened for influences as impressionism, expressionism and other directions of 20th century European music.
