Teresa

 

Teresa Underwood Miller, MT Certification I grew up in Goshen, IN with two musical parents and three siblings who all played an instrument. Teresa started piano and dance lessons at a young age, adding violin lessons in 3rd grade and voice lessons in high school. After participating in several music ensembles and solo and ensemble contests in high school, she decided to continue her music education in college. She received a BM degree in Vocal Performance with a minor in Psychology from DePauw University in Greencastle, IN. Having been involved with music almost her entire life, Teresa has taught voice lessons, performed in musicals and operas, played in many instrumental ensembles and been a member of choral groups in Indiana, Florida and Massachusetts. She is currently a member of Choral Arts Cleveland. Before completing the Music Together training, Teresa took Music Together classes with her daughter. Teresa is a stay-at-home mom to her two girls, Iris and Nadia, and lives in Lyndhurst with her girls and her husband Todd, who is also a musician.

You would never guess this about me, but..I used to run track and cross-country.

I love teaching Music Together because....of the families!  It's great to see families making music together and enjoying eachother's company.  There's also nothing like seeing a small child moving in time to the music or singing bits of a song that we've learned in class--and watching his/her caregiver seeing him/her doing these things for the first time.   I love what I do!
