Bärbel Müller was born in Duisburg and initially studied theology. In 1980 she began her vocal studies, first in Stuttgart and Trossingen with Herrad Wehrung, then at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Frankfurt am Main with Elsa Cavelti. Other teachers were Laura Sarti and Marlena Malas.  

She was initially trained as a mezzo-soprano and made her debut in 1992 at the Landestheater Linz in the role of the composer. Other roles included Dorabella, Sesto, Carmen, Orlovsky, Cornet. After several years in a permanent engagement, she made her way to various stages in cities such as Essen, Darmstadt, Ulm, Vienna, Prague, Strasbourg, Marseille and Nantes. In 2004 she changed her voice to the lyrical soprano, which enabled her to expand her repertoire to include important roles in the field, such as Donna Anna and the Marschallin. In 2011 and 2012 she sang Leonore in Beethoven's Fidelio at the State Theater in Szczecin. 2013 she sang the Senta in The Flying Dutchman. She also sang the Jocaste in Georges Enescu's opera Oedipe and Ludmilla from The Sold Bride by Bedřich Smetana.   

She regularly does recitals and concerts, mainly with musical-literary programs. Since 2012 she has been a lecturer in singing at the Mozarteum University Salzburg and also teaches a private singing class in Munich.
