Miro Hernandez is a Percussion Teaching Artist from the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex in Texas. His love for music and learning, as well as his respect for his teachers, led him to getting a BA in Music Education and then working with various music programs teaching music with a focus on social-emotional learning.

Being a musician and lover of all cultures and genres, Miro has played percussion and drums with many groups ranging from a Balinese Gamelan ensemble to a Latin fusion band.

Miro recently moved to Chicago to continue his career as a musician and educator and is extremely happy to share his love for music and teaching with Merit!

Favorite Musician:

Sufjan Stevens – He is a magnificent storyteller and uses his lyricism and orchestration to create albums that send you on an aural adventure. His music is genre-bending and I love his mixing of electronic and acoustic sounds as well as his musical works for ballet!
