Xanthe Miller

Xanthe Miller is a student at Bates College in Lewiston, Maine majoring in Music and Economics.
A Short Hills native and 2021 graduate of Millburn High School Xanthe enjoyed taking guitar and bass lessons at SoiHeard Music from 2018-21.
Encouraged by her So i Heard instructors Xanthe attended the 2019 Berklee School of Music “Summer Songwriting Workshop”. This Berklee experience jumpstarted Xanthe’s talent for songwriting culminating in her first completed acoustic song “Flying/Falling” followed by five additional original songs.  As a junior Xanthe planned to major in music in college and was required to submit an original music supplement with her 2020/21 college applications. In 2019 So i Heard Music graciously offered to develop and record “Flying/Falling” in their new studio facility as the capstone entry for Xanthe’s music supplement. Result: Xanthe was accepted into her dream college Bates as a music major.
In addition to playing the guitar, Xanthe continues to perform as an alto in the Carnegie Hall Choir in Residence – the Continuo Arts Symphonic Choir. Xanthe is also the alto section leader of the Bates College choir.
