Giving his Carnegie Hall debut at age 17, Patrick Kreeger has established himself as one of the leading musicians of his generation. Praised by The Philadelphia Inquirer for his “elegantly detailed phrasing,” as well as having “a lot to offer beyond the organ console,” he maintains a versatile career as a pianist, organist, and choral conductor.

Patrick has performed in many distinguished venues around the world, including: Benaroya Hall (Seattle, WA), Meymandi Symphony Hall (Raleigh, NC), Verizon Hall (Philadelphia, PA), Bulgaria Hall (Sofia, Bulgaria), Cook Hall (St. John’s, Newfoundland), Peterborough Cathedral (U. K.), Musée d’Augustins (Toulouse, France), Kunsten Museum (Aalborg, Denmark), as well as numerous other venues in the U. S., U. K., France, Italy, Israel, and Bulgaria. He gave his symphonic debut in April 2008, performing Sergei Rachmaninoff’s first piano concerto with the North Carolina Symphony and has also been guest soloist with the Musica Sacra Chamber Orchestra, Virginia Beach Symphony, Chilliwack Symphony Orchestra, Barton College/Wilson Symphony Orchestra, and the SUNY-Purchase Conservatory Orchestra.

A native of Jacksonville, Florida, Kreeger has pursued higher education at three institutions. At age 18, he was awarded a full-tuition scholarship to attend The Curtis Institute of Music, where he studied organ and piano with Alan Morrison and Susan Starr, respectively. He then received the Robert Baker scholarship to attend Yale University, where he earned his master’s degree and sacred music certificate under Martin Jean. Patrick subsequently was a C. V. Starr Doctoral Fellow at The Juilliard School, where he studied with Paul Jacobs and earned the prestigious Doctor of Musical Arts (DMA) degree. Patrick has served as the Associate Organist at New York City’s historic Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church since 2015. Additionally, he is on the College and Extension faculties at The Juilliard School.

In August, 2012, under Patrick’s guidance, I returned to piano study after a hiatus of 10 years. With infinite patience and great sense of humor, Patrick helped me rebuild my technique, expand my repertoire and regain my confidence as a pianist. As an educator myself, I can attest to the fact that Patrick has an excellent understanding of adult learners and their particular needs. I recommend him highly!

As a theory teacher, Patrick Kreeger possesses the exact teaching style the subject requires. Patience, availability for questions and dedication to my desire to learn best define my experience with Patrick. It was such dedication that also made him call me out when he didn’t think I was doing my best or was making careless mistakes. Perhaps this wouldn’t be that outstanding except that Patrick did all of this long distance; he was in Philadelphia and I was in Delaware. He was timely in mailing me assignments and tests, and even more so in grading and returning them. I learned more from him in the 2 years I studied with him than I did in my last year of theory in my undergrad at music school. If you have the opportunity to study with Patrick Kreeger, consider yourself lucky. You couldn’t find better quality teaching elsewhere.”

I had a piano lesson with Dr. Kreeger and we worked together brushing up on piano technique I had lost over the years. Dr. Kreeger was very fast at responding to my lesson request and we were able to set a date and time quickly and efficiently. Our lesson was via Zoom and he watched me play a couple of different pieces I was learning on my own. He was able to encompass all areas of playing piano that if practiced consistently, would help improve my technique over time. We discussed everything from proper posture and set up, body mechanics, and to how to best stylize phrasing of some of the music I was learning. I appreciated his approach to technique and how to practice; he was able to tailor the lesson to meet my specific needs and help me practice more effectively. I hope I can work with him again in the future and would highly recommend him if you are also looking to take piano lessons!

I have been an organ student of Patrick’s since 2015, recommended by Paul Jacobs. His expectations are very high I have learned so much from him. He is a very kind teacher but demands a lot from each student. I highly recommend Patrick to teach anyone who takes music seriously. A special thank you to him for challenging me to become a better musician.

I studied music theory with Patrick for only under a year, but within this short period of time I learned so much from him. He is always very thorough, patient and kind, and I also appreciated his tough demand for work to be completed with perfection. Not only did I learn my music theory skills from him, but also great working discipline. I highly recommend Patrick as a teacher and a coach.

Frequently asked questions

I like to get to know the student—their personality and their goals—before formally accepting them into my studio. I enjoy working with my students and want the chemistry between us to be good and healthy. By establishing a good relationship and setting clear goals with a timeline, many of my students are able to attain goals that were otherwise unable to be accomplished with previous teachers.
