Megan Miller, cello faculty
Megan Miller recently graduated from Towson University as the principal cellist of the Towson University Symphony Orchestra with a Bachelor’s of Music in Cello Performance. During her time at Towson, Ms. Miller competed in the school’s several music competitions, garnering the Talent Award for strings and first prize in the prestigious Peggy Friedman-Gordon Competition.
Ms. Miller is a home-grown product of Harford County. As a youngster, she participated in the Harford String and Harford Youth Orchestras and the Susquehanna Symphony Orchestra. Now her mission is to give back to Harford County the knowledge and skills she has mastered. “Teaching inspires me to keep learning and growing as a musician; that, in turn, motivates me to share my craft with others,” Miller adds.
Making a personal connection with the student is Ms. Miller’s pedagogical starting point. This connection enables her to identify the students ideal learning modality. As a result, Ms. Miller offers lessons that are enjoyable and informative, providing articulate instruction to achieve quality sound, efficient technique, and polished musicality.
Current projects include working with Kathy Frawley, the current manager of the Susquehanna Symphony Orchestra, to learn orchestral management, and serving as the cello technician at the Summer Strings Camp at Harford Community College.
