Eya’s passion for teaching and mentoring began as a high schooler when she taught elementary school students and watched her students develop and succeed in mastering their goals, including participation in solo festivals and being the youngest performer at their school’s talent show! As a graduate teaching assistant, she grew to love working with students at the collegiate level. As a result, her teaching experience encompasses students ranging from 5 years old to adult hobbyists.

Eya is currently working on her Graduate Professional Diploma at the Hartt School of Music under the guidance of Anton Miller. She received her dual masters in Violin Performance and Music Theory at the University of Akron. Her undergraduate studies at Stony Brook University included both Biology/Bioengineering and Music (with her long-time mentor, Dr. Linda Sinanian).

As an avid orchestral musician, Eya has had the opportunity to perform at venues such as Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Tilles Center for the Performing Arts, the Staller Center for the Performing Arts, and most recently, the Bushnell Performing Arts Center. Her experience includes performances with The Hartt Orchestra, New Britain Symphony Orchestra, Firebird Pops Orchestra, FOOSA Philharmonic, Tuscarawas Philharmonic, Stow Symphony Orchestra, and the North Shore Symphony Orchestra.

My Approach to Teaching

I focus on an individualized, collaborative approach centered around my students’ goals. Ultimately, my goal is to blend the technical and musical skills needed to perform appropriate standard repertoire, while also allowing students to have fun with the music of their choice. Students are always highly encouraged to ask questions as well as provide input for what piece they would like to work on next.
