Sandy Miller currently resides in Golden, CO where she has been teaching cello for over twenty years. Her teaching is informed by having experienced all three parts of the Suzuki triangle: teacher, parent, and student. She is currently certified to teach Suzuki Cello Books 1-6 and has trained with Dr. William Starr, Dr. Tanya Carey, Carey Cheney, Avi Friedlander, Blake Brasch, and Heather Hadley. She has also trained with Dr. Jeremy Dittus of the Dalcroze School of the Rockies. She holds a BA from Wesleyan University and a MM in cello performance from the University of Colorado at Boulder where she studied with Judith Glyde and members of the Takács String Quartet.

Sandy is an active performer in the greater Denver area and is a core member of the Baroque Chamber Orchestra of Colorado which has been recognized by Early Music America as having “a national reputation as a first-rate period-instrument ensemble.” She enjoys performing on both baroque cello and viola da gamba with the BCOC and can be heard on BCOC recordings including Corelli’s Circle (2018) and Resounding (2020).

A Suzuki parent for over 14 years, Sandy understands the critical importance of community and parental support in nurturing the whole child through their musical journey. She is currently serving on the faculty of the West Denver Suzuki Strings Program in Wheat Ridge.
