Guitarist / Composer
Kyle Miller, a native New Yorker from Valley Stream in Long Island, is a genre-fluid composer, performer and educator. As a musician who first began his training in electric guitar and later switched to classical training, Kyle blends rock and classical styles to create a compelling musical language that is at once familiar and novel. He received his Bachelor of Music in Classical Guitar Performance and Master of Arts in Composition at the Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College. He has studied guitar with William Anderson and Paul Bollenback, and composition with Edward Smaldone, Bruce Saylor and Jeff Nichols. Kyle also spent time studying guitar at the Universidad Veracruzana in Xalapa, Mexico and Balinese Gamelan in Bali, Indonesia. He is an active performer and composer of Gamelan Yowana Sari and Ictus Novus.
As a member of the Sheer Pluck Guitar orchestra, under the direction of William Anderson, Kyle has performed in venues such as Weill Hall, Lincoln Center, Tenri Cultural Institute and the Symphony Space, where he was a featured soloist at the first annual David Starobin Guitar Festival. In summer 2018, Kyle attended the Bang on a Can Summer Festival as an electric guitar performer.
