Musical Theatre Solo and Ensemble participants with their medals!

Welcome to our new Vocal Music Director, Miss Brittany Miller!

Miss Miller is extremely passionate about vocal music and creating a community where students feel safe, challenged, and excited. This will be her 12th year teaching, and her first year at HVS. She couldn’t be more thrilled to join the Milford High School team!

Miss Miller received her bachelor’s degree in music education from VanderCook College of Music in Chicago and her master’s degree in Kinesiology from Wayne State University. In her previous 11 years teaching, she has taught elementary, middle, and high school music. She has also directed musicals both at the middle and high school levels and acted as the music director for the Mt. Zion Theatre company. She loves Musical Theatre and would love to talk your ear off, if you ever need or have recommendations for musicals.

During her after school hours you can find her with her three fur babies, Cooper, Daisy and Penny. They love hiking together in the state park by her house, playing fetch, and working on agility training! This summer, Miss Miller ran her first half marathon and has already signed up for two more!

Willy Wonka said, “We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams.” Miss Miller believes that is true for this wonderful group of young people, and she feels privileged to work with them! She is looking forward to taking up the torch of this amazing program and continuing to let these talented students soar!

Congratulations to the Class of 2021!

Good luck and best wishes! You and your voices will be greatly missed!
