"Greg Murphy is a terrific piano teacher. He is knowledgable, patient, encouraging and fun. He is always well-prepared and he really cares about the progress of his students. His authenticity as a teacher comes from his approach to the music. He is a serious and gifted musician, he respects his craft and he loves the music. That shines through all the time and can't help but rub off on the student.
Greg is also versatile. He teaches young people, middle-aged people, and old people. I began lessons with him when I was in my 70s, and he adjusted to the fact that my learning curve is slower than that of his teenage students. But he's always made clear that our lessons were serious and that he expected me to make progress. Greg is quiet, but extremely determined.
Some of my nicest moments have come during our lessons when Greg joined me for piano duets. I felt like a real jazz musician. I performed way above what I ever thought I'd be able to do. It gave me a lot of pleasure and a sense of achievement. I'm grateful to Greg for that. "
