Jeff Miller was born among the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. He holds a Bachelor's degree in Music Education from the Shenandoah Conservatory of Music and a Master of Music in Tuba from the Mannes College of Music, Manhattan.
Jeff's tutors have included David Fedderly of the Julliard School, David Taylor, NYC bass trombonist extraordinaire, and tuba virtuoso Roger Bobo. Jeff joined Mardi Brass in 1997. An active freelancer, Jeff has trialed on tuba and cimbasso with Scottish Opera, has played in the West End and touring productions of Chicago, and has performed with the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden.
His amplified tuba has been heard playing funk bass lines throughout the UK and Europe, and his bass trombone can be heard in several London-based big bands, usually from many miles away.
Happily domesticated, Jeff lives with his wife Ellie (a professional violinist) and children Oscar and Alice. His hobbies include theoretical physics and artificial intelligence studies.
Jeff owns 5 tubas and is a keen supporter of Young's Brewery.
