      Get to know Gregg Taylor

      Gregg Taylor Music Biography Gregg’s music adventure began in the 1960’s, singing in church choir and several years of private organ lessons starting at the age of 10. While in high school, he played trumpet in Marching Band, started teaching himself guitar and played organ for Up with People, based out of Oak Park. He took his first music theory class at Triton Jr. College while in high school. Gregg went on to receive a Bachelor of Arts degree with concentration in music and art. He began teaching piano in college while doing a field work experience at Guardian Angel Home in Joliet. Gregg’s teaching philosophy provides lessons and material with attainable challenges. “Weekly successes build into larger successes”. He encourages students to bring in material of their own musical interests, or perhaps material they are working on for school or church. He will supplement this music with the lesson plan, along with the necessary music theory. Gregg’s performance career includes touring with The Drifters during the late 1970’s. While playing with Joliet based Beat’s Walkin’ he shared the stage with two members of country rock recording artists Heartsfield. He has played with Ric Parnell, the drummer in the movie Spinal Tap, and recorded and performed on stage with south-side Elvis impersonator, Dave Carlson. Gregg’s love and enjoyment of music is evident in his teaching. He looks forward to sharing his passion with his students at Music & Arts
