Paul Miller

Paul V. Miller’s eclectic musical career spans many domains, including performance, pedagogy and research. The Strad magazine called him a “virtuoso” in its review of his 2023 album with Chatham Baroque, entitled “The Undiscovered Viola d’Amore”. This album featured newly unearthed music for the viola d’amore from Bohemia and Austria in several world-premiere recordings. Paul has served as a principal player and soloist in the Washington Bach Consort, Opera Lafayette, the Bethlehem Bach Festival, The Hawai`i Performing Arts Festival and the Boulder Bach Festival. Paul serves as an Associate Professor of Musicianship at Duquesne University, where he teaches advanced classes in 18th-century counterpoint, classical form, chromatic harmony, post-tonal analysis, and electronic instrument fabrication. Since 2017, Miller has directed “The Duke’s Music”, Duquesne’s early music ensemble. Paul’s research has appeared in journals such as Perspectives of New Music, Early Music, Twentieth-Century Music, Opera Quarterly, Music and Letters, and Music Theory Online. Paul has published on Karlheinz Stockhausen work, as well as the practice of using data gathered from plant electrochemistry to make sound and music.

A native of Poughkeepsie, NY, Paul attended Vassar College, the New England Conservatory, Harvard, and the Eastman School of Music. His teachers include Carole Cowan, Stanley Bednar, Betty-Jean Hagen, Jeanne Lamont and John Graham. He holds a Master’s degree in viola performance and a Ph.D. in music theory from Eastman.
