Ciara began playing the violin at four years old, and grew up in Medicine Hat, Alberta. Throughout her lifelong dedication to music, she has travelled to countries such as Scotland, Germany, China, and the United States to compete and pursue her education. After completing her Bachelor's degree at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, NY, Miss Hager engages in the music scene as a teacher and performer, both solo and in ensembles such as bands and chamber groups. Oleh Krysa, William van der Sloot, Federico Agostini and Gary Versace are among a few of the educators who have shaped Ciara's future.   

In addition to Miss Hager's rigorous Classical training, she has spent much of her time connecting with the contemporary world. An avid Jazz musician, Ciara has taken numerous lessons from well known Jazz artists, and performs frequently in ensembles using her electric violin. Upon studying audio engineering at the University of Rochester, she produces her own music at home.

Ciara is very knowledgeable and talented.  She’s really helped me improve my violin skills a lot over the last year.
