Liza Seigido

Born: May 15, 1983

Current Location: Miami, FL



Liza Seigido, born May 15, 1983, is a native of Miami Florida. Her parents, both ardent music lovers and amateur musicians, were born in Cuba. Like her parents, Liza was, apart from the few music classes she took in school, a self-taught musician and began composing music in elementary school. Liza began taking formal piano lessons in high school under the instruction of Dr. Yasmin Alvarez who nurtured her natural talent for composition by supplementing work on piano technique with exercises in basic theory.

Liza’s formal training in composition began with Dr. Susan Epstein-Garcia and Professor Jorge Ibanez at New World School of the Arts College in downtown Miami; she was New World’s first composition graduate. Liza, a multiple recipient of Hispanic Scholarship Fund grants, currently holds a Master in Music degree from Florida International University where she studied composition under Fredrick Kaufman from August 2005 through May 2008 and served as a teaching assistant for FIU’s composition program from the fall of 2005 until the spring of 2007. She will begin working towards her Doctorate this upcoming fall at the University of Miami where she has been awarded a tuition scholarship and a teaching assistantship. Liza’s main sources of inspiration are her family, her compositional mentors, her martial arts training, early/pre-baroque vocal music and the music of Claude Debussy who she has thought of her entire life as her patron saint.
