Eileen has incorporated her Taiko program in numerous after school, summer school and library programs throughout the Phoenix area. Four trips to Japan and three trips to China have included studying and performing Taiko and wind instruments.

Eileen was a founding member of the folk band The Wilderness Family which produced a CD to much US and UK acclaim.
