Music is not just my greatest passion, but part of the fabric of my being. Music is also a journey for both the student and the teacher. In guiding my students, I hope to help them unlock the potential of music in their life and realize the path towards their own musical goals, whatever that may be.
I offer music lessons in many areas. My primary focus is guitar, but I have and am comfortable teaching on a number of instruments, as well as valuable skills such as theory, composition, recording, ear training, and more.
I have a B.A. in music from Lawrence University in Appleton, WI. While there, I studied guitar performance, trombone performance, and composition. I have also been Customer Service and Sales Manager at Guitar Center, toured on the crew for Dennis DeYoung of Styx, and taught lessons for students of many ages and skill levels.
Music is the thing that speaks to my soul the most in this world. I love every opportunity to share that joy with someone else, be it my fiance, a friend or band mate, or a student who may be learning the significance of music in their own life.
His experience shows immediately. He helps break down concepts into easy to understand methods. It's a fun experience.
Greyson is an absolute pleasure to work with! He's gone above and beyond my expectations, as a teacher. He's better than EVERY private-lessons teacher my son has EVER had, and I don't say that lightly. My son has learned more guitar in a month with Greyson than with all of his previous teachers, combined. Greyson is thorough and precise, but also laid back and works with you at your own pace of learning - not to mention his prices are fantastic compared to everywhere else lessons are offered. My son loves working with him, and so will you!
very patient and excellent at making a very daunting task easy and fun!
I begin by getting to know them, how long they've been playing/what they've learned, their musical taste, and how music currently fits into their life. Then I usually first ask the student which topic they'd like to learn about first or if they have any questions.
If they are a brand new student to music, we begin with the very fundamentals of their instrument. I always get them going with something they can start practicing right away.
I often begin later lessons with answering a student's questions, too.
I have taught lessons on Guitar, Bass, Drums, Ukulele, Trombone, and Trumpet; I am comfortable teaching in many other areas, too.
Here's a bit about my past experience that has brought me to where I am. I have studied music performance on guitar and trombone, as well as composition and theory through college. I worked as a Sales Manager at Guitar Center, which has helped me gather lots of information about music equipment and instruments, including with recording technologies. I have practiced recording for ten years now and have a studio at home. I toured as a crew member across the country with Dennis DeYoung and the Music of Styx. This taught me much about how performing and shows work at a very high level, as well as more about equipment.

I began by teaching family members, then friends... later I joined the Jim's Music Teaching Center in Green Bay where I greatly expanded my teaching abilities and experiences.
I have taught all ages from 5-65. I have taught beginners and those with experience. I have taught several students with special needs (cognative, blindness, etc.).
