Rich Millin



I have had many varied professional jobs in the music business over the past 20 years and continue to share my time between
  • Music Education
  • Music and Artist Management
  • Live and Studio Sessions
  • Music Production & Song Writing
  • Film Composition

I am currently the live drummer for Berlin based "Siamese Youth".

I have been an extremely busy professional musician and music educator for the past 20 years, recording and performing for over 1000 artists and having taught over 1500 students.
As a musician I have played live, worked with and recorded for countless artists across the world, including members of Oasis, Alicia Keys band, High Flying Birds, Suede, The Manic Street Preachers, Losers, yourcodenameis:Milo, Cooper Temple Clause, Bullet Height, Marakesh, Siamese Youth, Asaf Avidan band, Jesus Jones, The Stylistics, Celine Dion's band, belarus, XTC and Josh Kumra.
I am currently writing, recording or touring with countless artists worldwide.
I have successfully instigated, initiated, founded and directed many businesses in the music business and within music education, including music festivals, educational programs, a record label/music publisher, music websites & blogs, a music management company, schools, music clubs (after-school clubs) and recording studios.
I am founder/director of my own drum and music school in the centre of Berlin https://www.drparadiddleswonderdrumporium.com/ and have initiated a rockschool club in partnership with a number of International schools & a rehearsal space in the centre of Berlin.

I run regular music, drum and music business workshops in the centre of Berlin, as well as run masterclasses and seminars at various locations, schools, colleges and music universities around Europe.

I have my own recording studio which has expanded from being drum specific, to now offering full production, mixing and song-writing & arrangement for solo artists or full bands.

I am an experienced Music Teacher, having been on the Board of Directors for the Swindon MusicCooperative, a member of the BIMM Berlin Assessment team and most recently having been employed by The Academy of Music and Sound in the UK to offer global supervision as a mentor to some of their Higher Diploma, Degree and Masters Degree students across many disciplines. This isn't restricted to just drumming, but also includes composition, music production and events organisation on a national and international scale. 
Before leaving England in 2011 I taught at The Academy of Music and Sound as head of drums and music performance.

Since relocating to Berlin I have worked with TheAbbey Road Institute, DBS and BIMM in Berlin.
I have toured with or played shows alongside many well known bands and artists, including appearances at Berlinale, Fete De La Musique, Karneval der Kulturen, Truck Festival, The Great EscapeFestival, The Empire Movie Magazine Awards and The Kerrang! Awards.

As an music and artist manager I am currently working with a select few bands:

As a composer I am currently working on a Berlin based production feature length film. As part of this job I have also taken on the role of music supervisor.

In recent years I have been producing, (co-)writing and mixing on many studio projects with various artists in Berlin and across the world.
