Meet the Guest

A professor of cello at the University of Idaho Lionel Hampton School of Music, Miranda Wilson is also Artistic Director of the Idaho Bach Festival and the founder-director of the University of Idaho Music Preparatory Division. Born in New Zealand, Miranda Wilson lived and studied in several countries before building her career in the United States. She became a regular contributor to Strings magazine in 2011, caught the writing bug, and released her first book — the cello-playing manifesto Cello Practice, Cello Performance — in 2015. Next came a memoir, The Well-Tempered Cello: Life with Bach’s Cello Suites, in 2022. Her most recent book, Teaching Violin, Viola, Cello, and Double Bass: Historical and Modern Pedagogical Practices, co-authored with Dijana Ihas and Gaelen McCormick, encompasses three centuries of string pedagogy and its application to present-day playing. A forthcoming book of essays on cello repertoire will be published by Oxford University Press in 2024. Miranda Wilson lives in Idaho with her husband and daughter. When she isn’t playing, teaching, and writing about cellos, Miranda enjoys reading, travel, and spending time with her family and her two miniature schnauzers.
