  • Conner Shaw

    Greg is an extremely knowledgeable and brilliant educator. He knows so much not only about jazz music, but also the craft and aesthetics of writing ensemble music. I thoroughly recommend him for any of jazz music.

  • Kelly Kelso

    If you are looking for a very well-rounded and thorough education on the trumpet, in composition, and in music overall, I would strongly encourage you to reach out to Greg. He was a great mentor to me during my undergraduate studies at the U of Northern Colorado and has been a continual source of inspiration in the five years that I have known him. As a private instructor he is punctual, creative, passionate, and highly knowledgeable. He can guide you or your student in learning a wide range of genres and styles and support their growth with the knowledge of theory, ear training, composition, and much more. His accomplishments are numerous, and his experience has made him into one of the best musicians I know.

  • Ted Davies

    He was a very thorough teacher; he made sure I knew what I was talking about/writing before I finished a song. Very knowledgeable about a lot of different aspects of music, and very enjoyable to work with.

  • Hannah Rodriguez

    I brought in a variety of original music to Greg, from pop songs to nonfunctional harmony/modal jazz pieces and I found that Greg met we where I was at in my lessons. He gave me a variety of options to add to or change my music and made sure I understood the theory of what he suggested. I never felt pressured or judged when writing anything and gained valuable and helpful perspective.
