Miller was apprenticed to his father, a pavior (a layer of paving stones and the like), but ran away to study music. He is said to have been flautist in Handel’s orchestra at one time.
He played the organ for 50 years at Doncaster Church, and composed hymn tunes and harpsichord sonatas. Cambridge University awarded him a doctorate degree in 1786.
