Jeremiah “Miah” Palmer is a professional drummer from the San Francisco East Bay area. Having started his percussion instruction in elementary school at age 9, he proceeded through high school playing in the concert, symphonic, jazz, and marching bands. He joined his first "rock/ska/funk" band at age 15, which he played with through the rest of high school. At 19 he joined the US Army, where he honorably served his enlistment, and continued to play professional gigs around the central Texas area.
In 2003 Miah moved to Los Angeles to study at the Musicians Institute (M.I.) where he received his Journeyman and Professional certificates in Percussion and his Bachelor of Music Degree in Drum Performance. In 2006, he accepted a position with The Van-Dells and a move was made to Nashville. There he toured a majority of the Eastern coast. After returning to L.A. in 2007, Miah was hired on as a LPW (Live Playing Workshop) instructor, classroom drummer, and teaching assistant at Musicians Institute.
Miah is currently playing gigs with bands, solo, and recording artists. He also works with music producers (playing drums and percussion for placement in TV, movies, online, and more).
Teaching privately from his home studio, online for Henderson Academy of Music and Lessons.com, and on-site at SB Music & Arts Center (Fountain Valley) and the Pasadena Piano Academy, Miah is available for collegiate quality instruction.
