Eliana Fishbeyn is a composer and arranger.
Her musical upbringing and education started at an early age in her Russian-Jewish-Tatar family that immigrated to America in the 90’s to her home and birth town: Greensboro, North Carolina. Music surrounded the family unit with gatherings held every shabbat evening during her childhood to sing Russian and Jewish folk songs. At age 6 she began classical piano lessons with John Ruggero, to whom she owes much of her musical understanding and character.
Eliana hopes to be a small part of a large galaxy of artists who are there to clarify, understand and deal with the human experience on an individual, communal and global level. With all of her life spent living in a society which principally revolves around its economy, she hopes to be part of the many that challenge that by creating experiences where the intrinsic foundations lie in our relationships to each other, the world and nature around us, as well as our inherited collective memories.
Currently, she is finishing her masters degree in jazz composition at Manhattan School of Music, and studying with composer and pianist, Jim McNeely.
