We could not be more thrilled with our choice of music instruction!My daughter has been taking piano lessons with Courtney and enjoying them immensely- I always hear laughter along with the music.Greg has a keen sense for selecting the right instructor after learning about what makes the student “tick”.I appreciate the personal service of GnG and would absolutely recommend them.
Our son has grown to be an amazing musician with GnG Music Instruction.Let’s put it this way, prior to coming to GnG, he was interested in the guitar, now….he has a passion for it.There is no comparison to anyone in the Columbus area, GNG is the best in developing the music skills anyone needs to succeed and nurture their talent.
GnG has provided a wonderful learning experience for my son. His instructor is very flexible and CJ looks forward to his guitar lessons. I love having CJ come tell me about this “awesome new song” he’s been learning, and then getting to listen to him play one of my high school favorites! The communication provided to me by Greg is always top notch. Choosing GnG was a great decision for my son.
My piano instructor, Amanda Schmitt, is working with me to achieve my personal goals. She is upbeat, friendly, and can pinpoint my trouble spots so that I understand what I need to practice and improve. She is punctual, makes good use of our time (I’m glad I have an hour lesson!), and gives me manageable homework that encourages progress. Glad I found GnG! Thanks 🙂
Greg started out teaching guitar lessons in his own home and the homes of his students. After a very short time, Greg had more students than he could handle and so he brought a friend on to help with the student load. Eventually, they began to be asked about instruments they did not teach. Because Greg had played professionally around Columbus for many years, he knew a lot of other musicians who were ready to teach. And so, GnG Music Instruction began.
Beyond managing GnG Music Instruction, Greg works as a small business consultant, an event coordinator for several charities, and has 3 beautiful children that he spends as much time with as possible. Music, and specifically the teaching of music, is Greg’s first passion. Although he is solely on the management side of things now, he still enjoys regularly discussing lesson plans and individual students with the instructors, hosting the company’s recitals, and developing the staff.
Courtney has been a private and group instructor with GnG Music Instruction since 2010. During that time, she has used her skills to teach multiple instruments in a variety of styles and genres. In the studio, not only has Courtney taught private lessons, she has been the instructor of several guitar, percussion, piano, and instrument sampler classes. She has also taught various music courses at Moler Elementary, Champion Middle School, and Columbus Collegiate Academy.
In addition to her work as a music educator, Courtney is the Director of Operations at GnG and is responsible for managing and overseeing all programs that take place at the New Albany Studio as well as all other locations. She is the go-to person for incoming students and teacher development. Courtney is excited to bring her versatility to GnG’s team and continue to develop the company’s educational goals and programs.
