Originally from Havana, Cuba, pianist Evita Garrucho is an active freelancer and teacher in Miami and South Florida. Ms. Garrucho performs regularly as both, a popular band musician and a Classical pianist and accompanist. She has performed in venues and theaters in Spain, Mexico, and Cuba as a pianist/keyboardist for internationally acclaimed bands like “Monte de Espuma” (Cuba,) “Islas Infinitas“ (Canary Islands,) and Cuban singer Amaury Gutiérrez. As a Classically trained musician she has collaborated with “Ensemble Vocal Contemporáneo” of Tenerife, Spain, and with the Miami Zarzuela company “Opera Prima.”
Trained at the prestigious Instituto Superior de Arte in Havana with educators like Cuban Ofelia Montalván, Roberto Urbay, and the Russian pedagogue Stanislav Pochekin, Ms. Garrucho has earned several awards in piano competitions, like the Instituto Superior de Arte Contemporary Music Competition, where she won the 2nd Prize for two years consecutively (1989 and 1990.)
The uniquely sweet personality and loving demeanor of Ms. Garrucho over the years have made of her the ideal piano instructor for toddlers and beginner piano students.
I could not say enough about Eva. She is an incredibly patient teacher who truly cares about her students.
