I am Mr. Miller, the Jackson Elementary Music teacher. I teach the Kindergarten through fifth grade general music classes, as well as the band and orchestra programs.
I am originally from upstate New York. I began playing tuba in fifth grade, and it was life altering. After many performances in a variety of ensembles, I made the decision to major in music at college. As much as I love to perform, I discovered my true passion was teaching others about music!
I have been teaching music for over 20 years at all levels from pre-school classes all the way through high school, but my focus has stayed with elementary students I have been teaching at Jackson since 2007.
While I love to perform, I have many other interests, too. Those who know me know that I am a huge Star Wars fan. I also like to camp and hike with my family. Another activity I enjoy is cooking, especially grilling and baking.
I look forward to making music with you throughout the year and hope to instill in each of my students a love and knowledge of music!
