Trombonist Amos Miller joins the Royal College of Music as Head of Brass in September 2023.  

We are delighted that Amos Miller, founding member of internationally acclaimed brass ensemble Onyx Brass and Principal Trombone with the Royal Ballet Sinfonia, will join the RCM as Head of Brass this autumn. An experienced educator, Amos has been Head of Brass at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire since 2018 and has previously taught at the RCM. 

Amos has appeared as a guest with most of the UK’s major orchestras, as well as many international orchestras including the Chamber Orchestra of Europe and the St. Petersburg Philharmonic. His industry experience extends to the recording studio where he has performed on hundreds of film soundtracks including Paddington and Harry Potter.

Speaking of his appointment, Amos Miller says: ‘Having previously had several very happy years as a trombone professor at the Royal College of Music, at both senior and junior departments, I'm absolutely delighted to be returning as head of its brilliant brass faculty. Both the facilities and the resources of talent and knowledge at the RCM are spectacular, and I can’t wait to be a part of the team.’ 

Stephen Johns, Artistic Director of the Royal College of Music, comments: ‘Amos comes to the Royal College of Music as Head of Brass with a wealth of experience as performer and teacher.  He is extremely active in many areas in the brass world and beyond.  We look forward very much to his building on all the successes of the RCM Brass Faculty in recent years, witness to the exceptional ongoing work of our professors and students.’
