About the Instructor
Richard "Nat" Greer began his studies of piano and music theory at Yamaha Music School at age five. He continued his studies with fine piano teachers in Southern California. He was also privileged to study organ with world-renowned organist and composer Richard Purvis. He began teaching piano while in college and continued for many years.
He later received his teaching credential and taught elementary general music in the Queen Creek School District. There he produced many musical performances held at the Queen Creek Performing Arts Center.
Richard has taught thousands of children in several school districts over the years. When he served as a paraprofessional, he worked with special-needs children.
After returning to private teaching, he completed extensive training in a new methodology that allows students to learn more intuitively and progress more quickly. He implements this methodology into his piano studio. He still works in the schools as a substitute teacher, often helping with music.
He is organist at his church, a position he has held for many years. In addition to spending time with his family, he also likes to create music lesson plans for Teachers Pay Teachers, and occasionally tune pianos.
