Ila Cantor


Ila has been teaching music worldwide in institutions (Stanford, Frank Sinatra High School, Aquinas College), workshop settings, and privately for over 18 years. Growing up in NY, she had access to study with some of the most legendary musicians and became highly trained in jazz, playing professionally by the time she graduated high school. Ila has published 5 albums and multiple singles of original music and has toured extensively in the US, UK, and Europe with her own bands and as a side(womb)man. She’s also composed music for short films and documentaries, multi-media performances, and has been awarded multiple grants (Van Meir Fellowships, Open Arts Foundation) and commissions (Maginus Project) for composing.

Ila’s teaching style is passionate, distinct, and uniquely developed with care over the years. She believes that all of us have an inherent connection with the language of music, and by understanding concepts intellectually as well as training coordination skills physically, we can unlock the unlimited potential to sing and play any of our hearts’ desires.
