Miriam played my cello part beautifully, and supplied excellent recordings well within the deadline. I will definitely come to her again for remote cello session work!

This was my second collaboration with Miriam. I was totally blown away by the crystal clear sound, creativity and passion that she delivered back at our first collaboration but this time she even exceeded. I am beyond happy by the quality, pristine sound and professionalism she puts into every job. I have goose bumps listening to her cello and I am looking forward to many more collaborations! I highly recommend her and I am so glad I have found her here. Thank you!
