I’ve been featured on Thumbtack as a top guitar teacher. Check out the spotlight here.
Roger Candelaria: “I believe Richard is the best guitar teacher in the country. He custom tailors his method to the way the student learns. Steadily but gradually he integrates the student’s technique with the theory, musicality and the style that the student wants to learn.”
Ian Wardenski: I have known Dr. Richard Miller for four years of my doctoral studies at the Catholic University of America’s Benjamin T. Rome School of Music. During this time, I had the pleasure of completing my guitar studies under Dr. Miller, as well as serving as his teaching assistant for Fundamentals of Music Theory. In both settings, Dr. Miller proved himself to be an exceptional teacher and mentor. He strives to achieve the very most for his pedagogy, and is one of the most enthusiastic teachers I know. His teaching is always high caliber and insightful. In addition to his strong pedagogical skills, Dr. Miller is an outstanding performer. He recently gave a concert of Latin American music for Anne Arundel Community College’s Improvisational Music Committee, and I can attest to the fact that he performed beautifully. His concert was very well received, and comments by those in attendance were enthusiastically positive. Dr. Miller is truly a great pedagogue and performer. Students and audiences will benefit greatly from his passion for teaching and performing.
