Miriam has been playing classical violin since the age of four. She started her lessons with the Suzuki Music School in Calgary and carried on with this method in Vancouver. As Miriam advanced, she continued with the Royal Conservatory of Music, completing Grade 9 along with theory.
With a passion for performance, Miriam joined the Vancouver Philharmonic Orchestra and later the Burnaby Symphony Orchestra. She has performed with various mixed instrument ensemble groups at the Shadbolt Centre in Burnaby and at other private functions.
