Miriam Morris studied the viola da gamba with Wieland Kuijken and Jane Ryan. Her career has included many solo appearances and collaborations with leading early music ensembles, particularly in Australia.

She teaches the viola da gamba and cello at the University of Melbourne, and has pioneered early music in education in Australia, directing ensemble-based viol programmes in primary and secondary schools in Melbourne and Adelaide. She plays a copy of a Cheron seven-string bass viol (Paris c.1700) made by Ian Watchorn in Melbourne, Australia in 1997.
