Tutor: Miriam Lieberman

Miriam Lieberman is a singer songwriter with a unique perspective. She accompanies her powerful vocals with kora (21-stringed African harp) and acoustic guitar, performing as a soloist and with her trio: Kate Adams (Cellist) and Lara Goodridge (Violinist). 

Despite this unusual mix of pure classical instruments, and something made from a large gourd, strung with fishing line, there is a musical chemistry between these players and their instruments that melds into a soaringly beautiful soundscape.

Miriam’s music blends well-crafted songs with powerful and emotive performance. Her unique musical style has developed out of long periods of time spent immersed in the distant places and cultures of the music that inspires her and most of all out of a passion for song writing and performance. 

Miriam brings the music and techniques she has gathered from all over the world to her teaching, creating a vibrant, global musical journey in each of her classes.
