I have over 30 years of professional experience in the entertainment industry which includes recording, performance, production and teaching around the world. I am also currently active in the music and film industry and consult for organizations such as Minnesota Public Radio, Video Games Live, and the American Federation of Musicians. I also enjoy teaching and recording music in my home studio.

As a musician I started guitar and piano lessons at the age of eight. I received my Bachelor of Music degree majoring in Guitar Performance from Wichita State University.

 

I went on to study guitar at Berklee College of Music in Boston where I completed my Diploma in guitar performance, composition and arranging.

 

After attending Berklee I was awarded a full scholarship at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. While at USC, I graduated with my Master's Degree in Studio Guitar with full honors. Additionally while in Los Angeles, I completed my Certification in music clearance and licensing from the Film Music Institute in Los Angeles.

 

 

While at USC I taught undergraduate individual and class guitar students as well as guitar ensembles. After leaving USC I became the head of the commercial guitar department at California State University Dominguez Hills in the Los Angeles area. Along the way I picked up experience teaching and performing various other instruments including bass, and mandolin. While living in the Los Angeles area I gained an impressive list of recording and touring credits.

Original Music

"Cats In The Trash"
Cats.jpg
Cats In The Trash CD Produced and co-written by Chris Millner

Many chords ago the song writing /guitar nucleus of Mike Curry and Chris Millner joined forces in Los Angeles. Together they formed several bands with various musicians over the years playing their original blend of music in the local bar/club/cafe circuit. Hard to pin down with songs ranging from rock to soul-folk and blues interspersed with humorous and thought provoking lyrics their collaboration eventually culminated in the release of their eponymous titled Cats in the Trash CD. ... Music Review

Lisa Verlo "Home"
cmillner/Home1.jpg
Lisa Verlo Home CD Produced and co-written by Chris Millner

The liner notes on this refer to "Spoken lyrics by Lisa Verlo." This is a good hint to the direction of Verlo's art. With the musical assistance of Chris Millner, she explores the boundaries between lyrics and poetry. These pieces are more than poems but not quite songs. The result is a slick, professional sound and some very pleasant listening.
