KYLE MILLER | Visual Coordinator / Bass

Kyle Miller

Kyle is a part time music educator who has been working with various music programs in Michigan for over eight years. His teaching approach focuses on fat diddles, chexercises, and relating the lessons learned in drumming to "real world" scenarios; this ensures students not only become ridiculously good drummers, but better people as well. Music programs that Kyle has worked with include: Farmington United, Harrison High School, Northcoast Academy, Lake Orion Percussion, and Jackson Northwest. He is also an Innovative Percussion Featured Artist - Music Educator.

An interesting fact about Kyle is that through his journey of bass he has spent a marching season on every size drum in a standard five person bassline. This journey began with the Michigan State University Drumline (2007 - 2010) where he learned that he was not "all that" like he thought he was in high school. From there became involved in the WGI activity by marching with the North Coast Academy Percussion Ensemble (2009) and representing the Dynasty Corporation at the 2009 IPE Finals in Belgium. This journey was concluded by marching with the Cavaliers Drum & Bugle Corps (2009 - 2011). While at the Cavaliers he represented the Yamaha Corporation at the 25th National Cultural Festival (2010) in Japan and served as a Drum Sergeant for the 2011 Cavaliers Drumline; recipients of the Fred Sanford Award for Best Percussion Section in Drum Corps International.

Kyle is a graduate of Michigan State University with a BA in Accounting & Information Systems, specializing in Information Technology. By day he is an Information Security Consultant, advocating for personal data security and helping to keep confidential information out of the malicious hands of evildoers. When he is not working or teaching you may find him running the streets of Detroit, hiking mountains, or getting schooled in racquetball by the elderly.
