Kids On The Move - Zach Miller

AN ACTORS PERFECT HARMONY


If it werent for a friends inspiration when Zach was only 9 years old, this college freshman from Marlboro may have never known that he had such a  powerful voice - and acting talent, too! Zach says his friend Tyler Fallon convinced the sports enthusiast to partake in community theater with him. Miller  says, Ever since that day, I havent stopped performing! In fact, looking back, Zach says, I used to be really bad, tooI kind of grew into myself over  the years. He credits his vocal coach, at the time, Mona Greenberg, for working with him to develop his voice into what it is today.

Zach recently graduated from Howell High Schools Fine and Performing Arts Center and gained invaluable experience while there. Miller says, I dont  know where I would be without spending the last four years at Howell. They have helped me so much in terms of acting, music and dance. The faculty is so  strong, they changed my entire vision in performing. He gives tribute to Regina McAllen, the vocal teacher at the school. Zach says he would have never  dreamed of singing classical music if he hadnt worked with her. McAllen tapped Miller to audition for All Shore Choir; not only was he accepted, but  was also named the All Shore Scholarship Recipient for 2010. In addition to All Shore Chorus, he was only one of three kids to make it into All State  Chorus his freshman year! Through his experience with both choirs he mastered site singing (seeing a piece of music and being able to sing it on the spot).  The Howell High Grad certainly has left his mark; Miller was named the most accomplished singer in the High Schools history!

Zach is also the recipient of the Algonquin Arts Theatre Rising Stars Award. He says, After hundreds of vocal submissions from around the state were  received by the Theatre in Manasquan, five were chosen, and I was one of them. It was awesome because I got to meet many prominent classical singers,  musicians and pianists and I learned so much. The Cabaret for Life Organization is a non profit singing group that Zach is also involved with that helps to  raise money for specific diseases such as AIDS and Cancer. He adds, Its really exciting to be a part of something that gives back to people who arent as  fortunate. Another way the Marlboro resident gives back is by being involved in the Challenger Theatre Program where he works with kids who have  Autism.

For the last year and half, the 16 year old has been studying with Jay Winston, an alumni of Northwestern Universitys School of Music, based in  Matawan. Pop, Classical and Musical Theater are the three styles of music that Zach really enjoys, and he dabbles in Opera, too! He says, I really focus on  trying to sing each type of music, but my favorite style to sing or perform is pop music. I love to put on a Jason Mraz CD in my car and just belt it out!

Believe it or not, Zach says he considered himself more of an actor than a singer before he entered Howell High School. He has always wanted to act and was  granted many opportunities to participate in all the shows he was able to audition for.

Finding the balance between his love for sports along with acting and singing is something that Miller makes sure he saves time for. He says, Its still fun to  break away and play baseball with my friends and other sports that I love. Zach also likes to play the piano, chess and ping pong and also enjoys going to  the beach and hanging out by the pool.

Zach is excited about furthering his craft at Penn State University where he is majoring in Musical Theatre and was lucky enough to have secured a couple of  vocal-related scholarships. Miller hopes after graduating college that he will have a career that will include performing, writing, composing and directing.
