What students have to say about Greg's teaching
"I’ve had the great fortune to be a student of Greg Lloyd’s for the past few years, during which time he has brought my piano playing to a level I didn’t think possible. Greg does more than just teach the technical aspects of jazz/blues/funk piano. He delights in passing on his deep knowledge and love for the music, can unlock the secrets of developing a great sound, and can even teach that most elusive of elements: “the groove"
