  • About Barbara

    Barbara Miller cannot remember a time in her life when music was not a source of joy and inspiration. Barbara started playing the piano around the age of 5. “Growing up in a small town in Lancaster County, PA in the 60’s, if I wasn’t outside playing with friends, I was playing the piano and singing. By high school, I found myself in demand as an accompanist”. This led to about a decade of deep involvement with studying and playing the pipe organ. Although Barbara began college as an English major, she switched to Music Education and Organ after only one semester.  Singing in choirs, accompanying, and preparing for private lessons left just enough time for studying!

    After graduation, Barbara and husband Jack began careers teaching; first at private schools in Maryland, then public schools in New Jersey. While staying home with her two sons, Barbara began teaching traditional piano lessons. Discovering Simply Music was life-changing for her teaching and musical life. “Now when someone asks, “Why don’t you play something for us?” I respond with “Sure!” instead of “Sorry, I don’t have my music.” Barbara is currently Director of Music at a Unitarian Universalist Congregation. “Simply Music has allowed me to bring creativity and ease to my music ministry. I love sharing that with my students, congregation, and the world!”
