Greg Stentz has been teaching locally more than 20 years. In addition to teaching at Moore Music, he teaches lessons through the Lyceum program with Guilford County schools, and donates his time teaching ukulele at his children's middle school.
Of his teaching style, Greg writes, "Each student is unique and their learning style is going to be unique. As a parent and a musician, I try to teach each student in a way that speaks to them and lets them have fun in the process. Whether someone wants to start at the very beginning and learn to read music, learn tabs, brush up on their chops or learn a specific song for an audition or performance, I have covered it all." Many of Greg's students have gone on to attend performing art schools in the Triad area.
Greg studied at the UNCG School of Music under Greg Hyslop, Mark Mazzatenta, and Dr. John Salmon. He has written and/or performed on nine original albums, and performs regularly throughout the southeastern United States. Greg comfortably plays a wide range of musical genres; he can be found jamming in a top 40 rock band, accompanying a string quartet at a wedding, or playing bass in an East Coast Entertainment party dance band.
