Gregory Pavliv

Mr. Greg is a graduate of Berklee College of Music with a Masters in Curriculum Design, a best selling co-author, a national speaker on music education, a former public school music teacher and a Father of three. At his licensed and insured studio (located next to Brookdale Park in Bloomfield, NJ) he has successfully been practicing his own pedagogy of personalized music instruction for over 15 years.

 

While working for Newark Public Schools, he specialized in music instruction for children with special needs ranging from those in the autism spectrum to students suffering from cerebral palsy. His combination of music therapy and music education continues to have a meaningful impact and no two students ever receive the same lesson. 

Being elected as a State Delegate to the NEA in 2008 earned Gregory a national reputation as one of the country’s foremost music education advocates. As a Delegate, he authored legislation protecting performing arts in the public schools. This led to a position as the National Director of Training at Little Kids Rock, where Gregory delivered music education presentations and certified music teachers to implement music curriculum in 26 cities across 14 states reaching over 200,000 students.
