Murphy is currently a Ph. candidate at the CUNY Graduate Center, where she is in the end throes of writing a dissertation on the significance of the lullaby style in the instrumental music of Johannes Brahms. She teaches keyboard skills, ear training, and music appreciation at Brooklyn College. Prior to her time in New York, she received a BM and an MM in piano performance from the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, as well as a BA in French Literature.
