Christina Miller serves as Head Orchestra Director at Long Middle School. She is thrilled to be working with co-director Kelsey Wilcox and the students at Long! Christina is originally from San Antonio, TX and comes from a musical family. Her grandmother gave her singing lessons when she was very little. She then started piano at age 7, and found her true passion for violin at age 10 in her public school 5th grade strings program. In middle and high school, Christina was a member of her school orchestras as well as the Youth Orchestras of San Antonio, which gave her the opportunity to perform in destinations like Austria, Finland, and China. Christina moved to Denton after high school to pursue music education at the University of North Texas on the TMEA Bill Cormack Scholarship for Music Educators, which she was selected for during her senior year of high school. She is an active member of the Texas Music Educator's Association and the Texas Orchestra Director's Association. She is also a member of the Denton Community Orchestra and the Denton Bible Church Orchestra. Christina and her husband have been happily married for nearly 8 years, and welcomed their first precious daughter in May 2019. Christina loves spending time with her daughter and the rest of her family, watching Sci-Fi shows, playing in local orchestras, reading (especially Harry Potter!), cooking, and camping.
