Ileen Zovluck is a working musician and actively published musicologist. Her career as a concert musician began in the 1970′s with youthful performances around the US and Canada, with a primary large audience at the Capitol Rotunda in Washington DC at a celebratory festival concert for the 1976 US Bicentennial. In early 2006, Ileen was included in Who’s Who in American Women and Who’s Who in Education in America, and in 2009 was added to the roster of International Who’s Who in Music.
Ileen attended Wittenberg University (sacred music) studying conducting and orchestration with John Williams and Ian Polster, New York University for humanities, and the Mannes College of Music (MM classical performance and theory), studying with Robert Secrist, Frederic Hand, Charles Kaufman, Julius Levine, Yakov Kreizberg, Leo Edwards and Marie Powers and completed her graduate library studies with Jane Gottlieb at the Juilliard School.
Ileen’s scholarly work has been focused on the performance, documentation, historiography and promotion of music and performing arts. In 2013, she served as Consultant for the Melody Arons Center’s “Close Encounters” Study, which examined the harmonic, melodic and rhythmic connections between developing language in young children and the songs they use during childhood As a music annotator, analyst and critic, she has worked for over 15 years with major arts agencies, technical journals and CD labels in performing arts media, technical writing, editing and proofreading, following a career as a successful classical touring musician.
In 2010, after living 25 years in Manhattan, Ileen moved back to where she was born – Bergen County. Working in her teaching studios in both Teaneck and New York, she specializes in teaching and coaching up-and-coming young musicians, college-bound guitarists, adults with backgrounds in other instruments, in classical, acoustic and crossover styles.
