With over 20 years of experience as a violinist, Muller has performed for private events, theater and film. She also serves as a music teaching assistant and private instructor.

Muller has an affinity for the beauty of acoustic violin’s raw, emotional sound and appreciates that each violin has a unique, human-like voice. However, she plays amplified with powerful effects as well and has performed everything from classical violin works to wild and lush arrangements of hip-hop, country and gospel.

As a filmmaker, Muller has been featured in various films and television series, including “Frenemies,” “Doub6,” “The Understanding of a Beautiful Day,” “Cutter,” “Porfel,” “The Trumpet,” “The Paranormals” and “Precious” along with “Loving Till It Hurts,” “Its Voice,” “Al Otro Lado del Muro,” and “Same Girl.” Muller served as the producer in “One Last Box” and boom operator in “Doub6.”

Muller was born in Shreveport, La., and she is of African American and Haitian descent. She began her artistic journey as a young child who loved theater and music.

She earned her Bachelor of Arts in Music from the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami where she studied violin with Robert Rozek.
