David Miller is a Denver based actor/mandolinist and has been in numerous productions at various Colorado theaters in the past five years. He holds a BFA in Musical Theatre from The University of the Arts in Philadelphia where he studied acting, voice and dance, developing his mandolin skills along the way.

David comes from a musical family and first began learning piano from an early age. He picked up the mandolin later in his teens after finding a passion for the bluegrass style in the music of Doc Watson, Hot Rise and The Infamous String Dusters as well as many others.

David also began training as a tap dancer in high school and has continued to learn and perform what he considers to be his favorite dance style in shows such as Singing In the Rain, A Chorus Line, White Christmas and Lyle the Crocodile.

David believes that art is a purely emotional experience and strives to highlight and share the emotional journey in every piece that he performs, both musically and dramatically.
