Monica received early musical training in piano, violin and singing at Ballarat’s Loreto College.

She was a greatly loved music lecturer at the Ballarat Teachers’ College from 1946 to 1965 and was a musical influence on her students. One student was quoted saying “We used to sing every morning with Monica. She is a wonderful lady, always cheerful. I think she loved her students, so we loved her back. She gave us joy, so it was reciprocated.’

Monica Miller died on 25 February 1995. The priests who attended the requiem mass to celebrate the life of Monica Miller commented on how splendid the singing was.
