Christine Miller | BM | NCTM - Piano and Violin

IMG_6460.jpg

My name is Christine, and I absolutely LOVE to teach music to all ages and levels! I started playing piano, violin and singing at a young age and believe that anyone can learn and enjoy music.

I'm a versatile music educator and have taught music lessons professionally for over ten years in public and private schools, locally and internationally, and for group and private settings. I've enjoyed teaching and performing with all sorts of groups including university symphony orchestras, chamber groups, churches, weddings, nursing homes and even volunteering in youth detention centers. Notable music venues that I've performed at are Benaroya Hall in Seattle and Arlene Schnitzer in Portland. Music is my passion and I can't wait to share it with others!

I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Pacific Lutheran University (on Music Scholarship) with a Bachelor in Music Composition. I've had the privilege of studying under Dr. Oksana Ezhokina (piano), Dr. Jane Harty (piano), Dr. Svend Ronning (violin), Dr. Gregory Youtz (composition), Dr. Jeffrey Bell-Hanson (violin/orchestra) and Dr. Brian Cobb (composition/jazz piano). While at PLU, I was a member of the University Symphony Orchestra playing violin and also various chamber and solo settings on the piano.  The University Symphony Orchestra selected me as the "Student Spotlight Composer" to premier my symphonic composition, "Barenis". I am a National Certified Teacher of Music and member of the MTNA. I am currently teaching piano and violin lessons in Renton, WA.

Most of all, I am thankful to be a wife to my amazing husband and mother to our three children! I love Jesus, aviation, photography and playing with my kids. Everyday is a new opportunity to learn make a difference! :)
