As a clinician and educator, Matthew Miller has been a guest theory and masterclass performance teacher at UW-Waukesha and UW-Marinette. In addition to teaching at Carthage, he currently teaches guitar at Ripon College, University of Wisconsin Oshkosh, and the Waukesha County Conservatory of Music. As a researcher, he has worked on guitarist sitting positions, adopting the ergonomic principles of the Alexander Technique to conserve energy. Such efforts have produced two sources: Alexander Technique and the Guitar, a companion booklet for developing posture and fundamental foundations for technique (2007); and Guitar Performance Technique and Science: Understanding Our Body and Mind (2008).
Mr. Miller has performed solo and chamber music in the Midwest. He has performed for and received instruction with Ricardo Iznaola, Jorge Morel, Jorge Caballero, Sergio and Odair Assad, Lorenzo Micheli, Martha Masters, William Kanengiser, Jerome Ducharme and Goran Krivokapic. He has had the opportunity to analyze master classes conducted by David Russell, The Los Angeles Guitar Quartet, and Jason Vieaux, among others.
