Hello, my name is Michelle Miller and I am a Pianist and Teacher residing in North Edmonton, Alberta, where I run an independent teaching studio.
I LOVE teaching piano lessons and music classes and have been doing so since since 1993
when I started my first year of university. Teaching music is one of the most
rewarding things I have ever done (other than parenting, of course!) and I plan
to continue teaching (and learning) for the rest of my life! My music studio
offers both MYC classes and private piano lessons that are comprehensive, engaging and
incredibly fun with the goal of creating lifelong musicians.
