Mr. Antoine Miller
A Leader in Music
The nonprofit Sounds of Success Music Corp. was founded in 2018 by Antoine K. Miller to bring music performance to the community. With a background in playing instruments since he was a child to joining the iconic FAMU Marching 100’s Band as a college student to teaching music since he became an adult, Mr. Miller has worked in music education for decades.
After marching for three years with the famed Marching 100’s at Florida A & M University in Tallahassee, where he also studied Music Education, Mr. Miller was appointed band director at Kennedy Middle School in Riviera Beach in 2012. In 2016, he created a successful after-school music program at Somerset Lakes Academy, a first-year charter school, that started with 15 students, no band instruments and very little support and, within three months, had 50 students and enough instruments to create the SLAM Band, which performed in a host of places. He did it by following what has become his mantra: partnering with community leaders and area businesses to gather the support needed to ensure his love of music is duplicated in the community.
That mantra helped him launch his nonprofit. Today, SOS Community Marching Band—also known as the SOS Warriors—works year round with students aged middle school to adult who are asked to perform all over Palm Beach County, the state of Florida and other locations outside the Sunshine State.
