About Me

Hi! My name is Greg Brown. I’m a guitarist, composer, and a music teacher. I grew up in South Florida, where I was in a hard rock/funk/metal band, and I have worked in the Charlottesville music community for the past 20 years. I started playing guitar when I was 12 and was performing in clubs by the age of 14. Since moving to Virginia, I have studied classical and flamenco guitar and focused more on composing and recording. I have 9 published books and 5 recorded CDs, most of which contain my own compositions. I’ve also had the privilege of playing with the Evans Youth Orchestra and the Camerata Rotunda Chamber Orchestra, performing classical works and my own pieces. Recently I’ve jumped into jazz, and I’ve been playing lots of ukulele and arranging classical work's for it.  I still love metal, though, and you’ll find Iron Maiden and Metallica next to Beethoven and John Williams on my iPod!

After managing the Charlottesville Music & Arts from 1996-2000, I was a music teacher for 10 years at private and public schools in the Charlottesville area. Two of my children have progressed through local music programs. Now, my 7-year-old has started on the fiddle and ukulele, so it looks like I’ll be doing it again. I know what it’s like to be a band or orchestra parent, and I can assist you with selecting the proper instrument for your child as a beginner, and when he or she needs to move up to a new one. Since we work with all the schools in the area, we know what the music teachers prefer, and can help you with all the accessories and supplies.

Please come by and see me, whether you are an advanced musician, a new musician or the parent of one. We have everything for your musical needs: sheet music, full line repair shops, accessories and lessons that keep you motivated and inspired.

Hope to see you soon!
