Greg Flury's Summary

Greg began his musical career at the age of four, starting on the piano at the musical preparatory division at Elizabethtown College. At eleven, he discovered the cello and began studies with Jill Placeway.

Beginning in his high school years, Greg started private lessons with Richard Winey. Discovering a newfound love for playing, he decided that he wished to pursue music at the collegiate level and transitioned to studying with professional cellist Steven Lavender for the next three years.

In the fall of 2012, Greg attended the Sunderman Conservatory at Gettysburg College, studying with Daniel Levitov, director of the preparatory division at Peabody Institute. During his four years at Gettysburg, he participated in selective groups such as the Gettysburg College Orchestra, Metta Ensemble, Sunderman Strings, and various string quartets and new music ensembles.

Greg currently participates in ensembles across south-central PA including both collegiate and professional orchestras such as the Hershey Symphony and Allegro Chamber Orchestra. He has had the opportunity to study under John Koen, a member of the Philadelphia Orchestra, and Sara Male, a prominent cellist within the central PA area.

Greg is always looking for ways to support the contemporary music scene as well as educate others in the art of the cello and string playing. His teaching style focuses on correct technique, critical thinking, and setting students up for long term success. Along with teaching privately and at the State Street Academy, he is excited to be collaborating with the Perfect 5th Music & Arts Center to provide musical opportunities to all.
