About Miho:

Having lived in Cleveland for 17 years,  Miho notes, "Everything is so close; it is easy to get together with friends."   She enjoys teaching and will teach any willing student.  Her husband, Paul Meyer and daughter, Natsumi keep their goldfish Goldie and Silver in good waters, naturally entertaining those fish differently from the fish served at Pacific East, one of their favorite restaurants. She's an avid horseback rider. In addition to violin, Miho also plays viola, piano, and baroque violin, which uses a different bow and playing technique  She performs and has recorded with Apollo's Fire.
