Terry E. Miller
Terry E. Miller, a native of Dover, Ohio, majored in organ at the College of Wooster (1967) before turning to musicology and, as a result of military service in Vietnam, to ethnomusicology. He received his MA and Ph.D degrees from Indiana University in 1971 and 1977 respectively. Although known primarily as a specialist in the musics of Mainland Southeast Asia, especially Thailand and Laos, he has also worked extensively in the United States, the West Indies, the UK, Vietnam, and China. In addition to numerous articles, recordings, and other contributions, he has published a number of books focusing on Thailand and the United States. His most widely known works are as co-editor and writer of The Garland Encyclopedia of World Music: Southeast Asia and as co-writer of a survey textbook, World Music: A Global Journey, now in its third edition. In addition he has published dozens of articles, encyclopedia entries, compact discs, reviews, and has present papers throughout the world. Dr. Miller retired from Kent State University in 2005 where, in addition to teaching, he founded and directed both the KSU Thai and Chinese Ensembles.
