Elizabeth Miller, viola

Oct 24 2018

Where did you grow up?  Orono, Maine.

Where do you currently live?  South Portland, Maine.

What instruments do you play?  Viola, violin.

Educational background:  BA University of Southern Maine; M.Div. Bangor Theological Seminary; D. Min. Bangor Theological Seminary.

Family, Pets, Kids: Live with husband, a Plotthound and a Greyhound. Both dogs are rescued from an animal shelter.
We have three grown children, five grandchildren, two great-grandchildren.

How did you get started in music?  I came from a musical family. My father was a pianist and professor of music. My mother used to play nursery songs and we would sing before my father got home. I learned to read music before I learned to read words. I began my violin studies at the age of four.

What non-PSO musical activities do you participate in?  I play with various other groups from time to time. I used to play with a quartet regularly, but that group disbanded. I also continue to teach violin and viola.

What’s your favorite PSO memory to date?  There are way too many memories to single out any particular one.

Describe a typical day:  There is no such thing as a typical day in my life! My “day job” is unpredictable and never boring.

What is the question you’re asked most often when you tell people you play with the PSO?  “How much do you practice?”

Any non-musical hobbies?  I enjoy reading, knitting, gardening and being with family and friends

What is your favorite music? What are you currently listening to?  Depends on my mood.

Contact Info for potential students:  (e)  I teach both violin and viola to any age.
