Mira

Mira has a lifelong passion for classical music that began at the age of five, when she first studied piano. Born in Claremont, California, she received tutelage at the University of Redland and began training in professional musicianship at the age of 8. With her extensive education and training in music theory, history, technique, and performance, she quickly began to speak and breath the language of music.

In 1998, the nationally acclaimed Claremont Young Musicians Orchestra took Mira under their wings and she became part of a community of young performers in LA participating in major summer music workshops and venues. She attended the Southern California Suzuki Institute, the Idyllwild Performing Arts Festival, where she studied viola with Masao Kawasaki and Catherine Carol of Cincinnati Conservatory. In 2006, she joined the CYMO Orchestra during the Eastern Europe tour and their Disney Hall debut.

As a student at Georgetown University, Mira lead her campus chamber music program under the guidance of the Vasily Popov from Moscow Conservatory and Ralitza Patcheva of Saint Petersburg Conservatory. Her own teaching philosophy began to be molded into fruition, which lead to the holistic, interdisciplinary environment her students study in. As a violin teacher, Mira believes that the key for music success lies in fostering students’ passions for motivation and incorporating mindfulness techniques for greater concentration. She loves working to help students’ abilities grow and improving their creative capacity, discipline, and self-esteem. She enjoys being part of The Royal Music Academy and welcoming students to a world class community of music.
