About Me
Mr. Greg has been a successful private music instructor for fifteen years. In that time he has developed a unique way to give each student a customized learning strategy for piano lessons, guitar lessons, songwriting lessons and much more. His unique approach has also been successful with Pre-K students for piano lessons for ages 3, 4 and 5.

You can visit his website (www.MusicTeaching.Guru) to download a free copy of his M.U.S.I.C. Method to see the Music Teaching Guru culture that inspires music, builds character and fosters imagination.

He is fully licensed K-12 Music Teacher, certified by the NJ Department of Education and his classroom work (focusing on student songwriting) was featured in an NJN documentary in 2007.

Mr. Greg has also specialized in music instruction for children with special needs ranging from those in the autism spectrum to students suffering from cerebral palsy.

A professional pianist, he also plays guitar and drums (and a host of other instruments).

Lesson Details
Music Teaching Guru features a full Apple Studio utilizing all the latest music technology for piano instruction, songwriting and film scoring (located next to Brookdale Park in Bloomfield, NJ).

Gregory has released two albums as a professional pianist & songwriter, with several of his songs, arrangements and compositions being featured on compilation albums by other artists.
