Elizabeth Miller is a composer, pastor, speaker and musician who has travelled and performed internationally including at Carnegie Hall. She has a heart to ignite the heart of David on the earth again through speaking, ministering with her harp and teaching worship musical skills to kids and adults.
She is the director of David’s Harp School. Elizabeth and her husband, Tom, travel in ministry and are based in Ithaca, NY, as elders at Reach Out Church. They have a passion for sharing Jesus and releasing freedom.
Elizabeth (originally born Geordie Arnold) was born in San Francisco, California as a fourth generation Californian. Her parents both worked for the San Francisco Chronicle as Sunday/Feature Editor and society columnist. Writers, cartoonists and columnists were frequent visitors at her home, including Abigail Van Buren (Dear Abby) and Gary Larson (the Far Side).
Her harp adventures began in New Haven, Connecticut and later she moved to NYC where she pursued a career in singing contemporary music premieres for young composers. In NYC she found Jesus and and moved to Ithaca, NY with her husband. There she discovered her passion to worship and evangelize. Over the years she began to see many other purposes for what she began to call the “Biblical harp” including changing atmospheres, speaking God's heart and healing. She has served as children's pastor for 10 years at Thrive.
Elizabeth's professional music background includes studying voice and music composition and performing nationally and internationally with the Steve Reich Ensemble, including at Carnegie Hall with two recordings on Deutche Grammaphon, and has debuted contemporary music pieces in New York City, Connecticut and New Jersey. She produced “A Victorian Entertainment,” an original theater piece with three distinct singing characters portrayed by her, along with ragtime by pianist, Nurit Tilles, and magic by Bobby Torkova In New York City and Cape May, New Jersey. She also appeared on film singing a song by Brahms dressed in 1940’s period costume on film for an installation at the Guggenheim Museum. Elizabeth’s music training includes: classical voice with Ward and Vicki Jamison and at Hartt Conservatory and the San Francisco Conservatory of Music; music composition with Edmund Haines (Sarah Lawrence College) and Alvin Lucier (Wesleyan University) and Sundanese classical vocal music.
