“Working with Brad Miller is an absolute delight. He is a consummate musical director, coach and band leader. He has sharp attention to detail but never squashes a performer’s instincts. It feels like a genuine collaboration when you work with Brad. I’ve worked with him on a show involving child performers. It’s not easy and a person often shows their true colours dealing with kids! He was a kind, patient teacher as he built their knowledge and confidence, creating authentically dynamic performances. His bands are energised, hard working and spot on under his baton. The score is fully realised and rich and always supports the performers and the story telling. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Brad as your musical director. He is a gem.”
