Gregory Ross Miller
Greg’s musical interest started at an early age while attending the Church of the Resurrection in Harlem, New York City. It was there that Father Michael Mehan pushed Greg toward the study of sacred organ music. Greg later studied with John McCauley at the Riverdale Country School and went on to attend the Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music and Art in New York City. Greg continued his musical studies with Academy Award winning composer John Corigliano at Lehman College in the Bronx before relocating to South Carolina to work as musical director of theatre at South Carolina State College. Greg later left South Carolina to return to Harlem to become organist at St. Thomas the Apostle Roman Catholic Church before going on to become organist at the historic All Saints Church on 129th street and Madison avenue. During the course of his duty at All Saints Church, Greg also accepted an appointment to become instructor of music theory and accompanist for the preparatory choir at the Choir Academy of Harlem before relocating to Los Angeles. In Los Angeles, Greg enrolled in organ studies at the Thornton School of Music and studied organ at the First United Methodist Church of Glendale with Dr. Ladd Thomas, chairman of the music department at the University of Southern California. Greg was later offered the appointment as organist at East Whittier Presbyterian Church. In his current position as pianist at First Baptist Church Los Angeles, Greg would like to bring spiritual growth to the music ministry, as well as spiritual enrichment and growth to the entire church and its community.
