In 1948, as a freshman at Boston University, Mr. Hamill was appointed organist and choirmaster of Copley Methodist Church, Boston. He later taught choral music at Woodmere Academy on Long Island, NY.  He next accepted the position of music editor of the American Book Co. in New York, later advancing to the position of managing editor of the company. While at American Book, he produced educational LP recordings at Columbia Records for 3 major music series.

In 1976, Paul Hamill and his wife Elinor founded Gemini Press, and in 1978, he was appointed editor-in-chief of Summy-Birchard Music.

The Hamills built a vacation home in Otis Wood Lands, MA, and in 1980 decided to continue their publishing projects from Otis.  Subsequently, he was hired as organist at South Congregational Church in Pittsfield and served there for four years, retiring in 1985. He was later asked to be organist and choirmaster of St. James' Church in Great Barrington, his home church.

Mr. Hamill authored and produced 21 annual editions of the CHURCH MUSIC HANDBOOK before his death in 2003. He has more than 100 published works represented in several music catalogs.
