​Support the Patrick “Doc” Miles Horn Scholarship Fund

Dr. Patrick “Doc” Miles served as Professor of Horn and Director of Orchestral Activities at UW-Stevens Point from 1989 until his retirement in May 2016.  His former students are playing in professional orchestras around the country and in Europe. Dr. Miles believed in not just teaching the student to play horn but to be the best whole musician and person that they could be.

Some of Dr. Miles’s many notable accomplishments include his performances with numerous orchestras such as the Green Bay Symphony, the Fox Valley Symphony, the Pamiro Opera Company and the Joffrey Ballet. Miles also co-authored the McGraw-Hill textbook Teaching Brass: A Resource Manual and was awarded the UW-Stevens Point Excellence in Teaching Award in 2016.

In honor of his long tenure with Department of Music, a scholarship has been created to support future horn players at UWSP. Dr. Miles initial gift of $5,000 allowed a $1,000 scholarship to be awarded for the fall of 2016, with the goal of growing an established endowed fund of $25,000 that would continue this award for years to come." The recipients of this scholarship will reflect qualities fostered and valued by Dr. Miles in the UWSP Horn Studio—diligence, talent, intelligence, collegiality and aptitude. 

With gifts from Dr. Miles and close friends and family, the endowment is already halfway to its goal. We invite you to honor his legacy through a gift to the Patrick “Doc” Miles Horn Scholarship fund at the UWSP Foundation.
