She has her Bachelor’s degree in Music Education from Millikin University, and one day hopes to earn her Master’s degree in music therapy. She is lighthearted, kind, and genuine.

Miranda is a classically trained violinist, has played in multiple symphony orchestras and chamber ensembles, as well as a fiddler in country rock, bluegrass and praise bands. She has a beautiful touch and amazing technique. When teaching string instruments she uses a blended method of Suzuki and other methods. Miranda enjoys playing in a group, is a fantastic soloist, and her students reflect those same skills. She strongly encourages reading music and not solely relying on patters and playing by ear. While those skills are important, reading music is essential. She teaches beginning through advanced violin and viola, as well as beginning to intermediate cello and ukulele.
Miranda is also our “band instrument” teacher at Tuned-In! She teaches beginning trumpet, clarinet, trombone, baritone and concert percussion.
