Carrie Miller has taught cello privately for 13 years with the past two working with online platforms and teaching many around the country. Currently she works as a freelance musician in Davis, California.


She began playing the cello at nine years old in Davis where she grew up. Carrie studied at Florida State University with Greg Sauer receiving a Masters of Music in cello performance and previously received a Bachelor of Music in cello performance from the California State University, Sacramento where she studied with Professor Andrew Luchansky. During her 4 years at CSU, Sacramento, she had masterclasses with pianist-composer, Eric Zivian, Timothy Eddy, and Steven Doane. In 2015 she performed the Lalo Cello Concerto after being a winner of the CSU Sacramento Concerto Competition. After finishing her masters, she lived in Ann Arbor Michigan and performed with the Jackson Symphony, South West Symphony Orchestra, Adrian Symphony Orchestra, and West Symphony Orchestra in addition to playing in musicals and participating in a number of chamber series.


She enjoys working with people of all ages and levels and believes that one of the best parts of being a musician is the opportunity to work with cellists and other musicians. Carrie finds her experience teaching students in her studio and visiting public schools to work with cellists especially rewarding.
