Greg Schwan




Greg's passion for music is expressed through his creative abilities as an active singer/songwriter with a strong interest in folk rock music. Holding weekly open mic nights at local pubs here in Guelph, he enjoys engaging and connecting with music lovers of all levels.

Greg began his musical journey with the bass in 2006, and quickly picked up the guitar closely thereafter and began training in audio production at Blackbird Studios in Nashville. Upon his return to Ontario, he entered the Applied Music Program at Mohawk College in Hamilton.

Greg enjoys music with his students in both a private and class setting, and founded the program "School of Roctave" with Octave Music where students focus on songwriting and improvisation.

Greg has a real world approach with his students, guiding them in a fun and exciting way to become self-sufficient in understanding composition and musicianship.
