Nina Miller is a member of Suzuki Association of Americas, Music Teachers National Association and Connecticut State Teacher Association.

She is passionately involved in the Suzuki method, finding Dr. Suzuki’s philosophy fascinating and very close to her way of teaching, which pays enormous attention to the beauty of each note. She believes in the nurturing of every child’s ability.

It is very important to her to find that special, unique way to the heart and mind of each of her student, to adjust her teaching to the most efficient way the child can learn.
