Aza Torshkoeva: The Musical Gift That Keeps Giving

Aza Torshkoeva is nothing short of a musical genius. A music hybrid that combines music education and concert piano into one entity as she dazzles both her students and audience. She has been described as a musician with fire dynamics and sparky fingers. Aza takes classical music to a new level and has often left her audience dazzled by her skills and dexterity. She is well-grounded in Bach and Metallica, and once she starts moving her fingers deftly across the piano keys, her audience gets sent back into music history.

Aza Torshkoeva is big on passing on what she knows to as many other budding talents as possible. She is an efficient teacher who uses the individual approach to impart knowledge to her students. She is thorough, deliberate, and fully hands-on when teaching music and everything her students need to know.

As a musician, Aza has an impressive resume and has proven her mettle in different ways. Aza Torshkoeva has won many scholarships and more than 30 regional and international music competitions. She has performed at Concerts with Florida Orchestra and Bradenton Symphonic Orchestra; she has also performed at the music of David Del Tredici in Manhattan and as a soloist during a piano show of Miami Piano Grands at the New World Symphony Concert Hall. She currently works with well-known violinists Alejandro Mendoza and Francisca Mendoza and has graced numerous concerts with her piano duo partner, Jane Ceteleva, in Chicago.

She teaches piano at the State College of Florida and has established a new music school for children and adults named Clavus Conservatory. The school offers both online and in-class lessons. Her individualized approach to teaching has also been reinforced as a principle at her school. She believes that anyone who is willing to learn must have the right perspective, which can only be achieved by having characteristics like positivity, energy, responsiveness, success, passion, equality, creativity, tenacity, independence, vision, and education. She used each letter of the word “Perspective” to create these essential characteristics, and they are the things she wants to see in every one of her students.

Her ideal target audience consists of musicians, singers, music producers, agents, and piano enthusiasts. Aza Torshkoeva sees the stage as a galaxy for her to explore, discover things, and keep the stars shining. This explains her unmatchable energy whenever she is performing. She is always ready to deliver and keep her audience mesmerized.

She sees every show as the last show and her last chance to make herself unforgettable in the mind of her audience. “I get my motivation from my love for music, seeing peace in the world and the beauty of nature,” she says.

Aza’s five-year goal is to record more music, expand her brand globally, and help new talents to achieve their music dreams. In her words, “I want to be a music angel to provide music instruments. I am open to future collaborations, meetings for new music projects, recording sessions, concert opportunities, and people who want to study piano.”
