Tim Miller Master-Class at the American School of Modern Music

It is with great pleasure that we will receive guitarist Tim Miller for exceptional and exclusive Master-Class on Monday, May 15th.


Tim Miller brings a distinctive voice to the world of jazz guitar. His career has taken him to Paris, New York, and Boston, where he is an associate professor of guitar at Berklee College of Music. Guitar Player magazine characterized his playing as “pure melody consciousness with remarkable control, a breathy, violiny tone [and] bell-like consistency.”

Miller’s music combines explosive raw energy that is artistically balanced with soulful melodic compositions.

While living in Paris, he played extensively with drummer Aldo Romano. This led to recordings and European concerts and jazz festivals. Miller later joined the faculty at Berklee and recorded Sides with saxophonist George Garzone. He also played in a quartet with fellow guitarist Mick Goodrick.


In 2005, Miller released his first solo recording, Trio, which has received critical acclaim. Later, he released his most personal recording, Trio Vol. 2. His performances include concerts and festivals with Paul Motian, Randy Brecker, Mark Turner, Terri Lyne Carrington, Gary Thomas, Gary Husband, George Duke, Chris Cheek, and Keith Carlock. He cowrote Creative Chordal Harmony for Guitar: Using Generic Modality Compression with Mick Goodrick in 2012.
