Born and raised in the greater Vancouver area, Eva Hodge (M.Mus., University of Victoria, 2011) is an award-winning pianist and music educator. Her piano education followed the RCM method, culminating in a mark of 96 on her ARCT in Piano Performance. Her post-secondary studies began in 2005, with a two year program at Capilano College. From there, she transferred to the University of Victoria where she studied with Bruce Vogt and Michelle Mares. Hodge completed her Bachelor of Music Degree in 2009 and Master of Music Degree in Piano Performance in 2011.
Hodge has been fortunate to study and perform in Europe on scholarships and tours, with performances in Italy, Austria, Germany and Prague. In 2011, she was selected as a winner in the University of Victoria's Concerto Competition, resulting in a performance of Liszt's Piano Concerto No. 1 with the University of Victoria Symphony Orchestra. After graduating, Hodge attended Opera Nuova in Edmonton where she studied as a repetiteur for Handel's opera Alcina. A year later, in 2013, Hodge attended AEDO, a five week opera program in Lucca, Italy where she studied as a repetiteur for Puccini's La Boheme.
In September of 2013, Hodge began teaching piano, theory and Intro to Singing courses through the Capilano University Community Music School and Continuing Education program. She also worked as a collaborative pianist with singers enrolled at the University of British Columbia's Music School (2012-2015). In 2016, Hodge joined the Music Gallery Academy in West Vancouver, teaching piano, theory and voice.
Apart from her private teaching, Hodge has worked as a freelance pianist for local events. She was hired as an instructor at Capilano University from September 2018 to May 2019, where she taught ear training and rhythm to first and second year music students. Hodge was recently re-hired for the same position in September of 2022. She will be teaching Music History 220 in the Fall.
My love for music and teaching go hand in hand. I strive to create an encouraging learning environment, allowing students a safe place to express themselves, while acknowledging each individuals unique way of learning.
