Milton Suggs

Music has been an integral part of Milton’s life from an early age. As a child he played various instruments including the bass, the alto saxophone, and the drums. From these experiences Milton developed a love of, and discovered an intuition for, music that has aided in his growth and development as a musician.

In 2001 Milton began learning to play the piano under the tutelage of his godfather, renowned pianist Willie Pickens. In 2003 he enrolled at Columbia College Chicago where his passion for performance and arranging began to take shape. It was here where he first began to develop his skills as a vocalist and pianist, as well as a composer/arranger. Shortly after receiving his B.A. from Columbia he chose to attend DePaul University where he received a Masters degree in Jazz Studies. It was while attending DePaul that he received a Downbeat Magazine Student Music Award for outstanding vocal performance.
