My students become part of my family. I also know how to prepare you for any musical adventure you want. You want to prepare for a solo festival? You want to become section leader? You want to audition for college? I can help you! It’s what I do, it’s what I have done for over two decades. That being said, I am not “old school” or bound to old fashioned teaching techniques. I also pride myself on staying current with all of the latest music technology. I can help you unlock all of your music potential. 😊

Mr. Greer did a fantastic job teaching my daughter Clarinet. He is very professional and she got a perfect score on all of her NYSSMA solos that she worked on with him. I highly recommend Mr. Greer for private lessons.

Worked with my daughter and she really enjoyed the lesson. She asked me if she could continue to take lessons with Christopher. He seemed to be able to easily have her gain confidence.

He is an amazing teacher. He helped me tremendously with my embouchure issues and my sound. His friendly style and energy really motivated me to practice more. Can't wait to get back to school and audition for first chair in band.

We love Mr. G.! Our son has Autism & Mr. G. is so patient with him. He treats our son just like the rest of the kids and expects nothing less from him. We highly recommend Mr. G. (& his incredible talent) to teach your children as well. You won't be disappointed!
