Miranda Wilson is an internationally performing cellist and the author of The Well-Tempered Cello: Life with Bach’s Cello Suites and Cello Practice, Cello Performance.
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 and 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. Forthcoming books include a study of modern and historical string pedagogy and a collection of essays on cello repertoire.
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.
