Greg Seaman has been teaching for more than 30 years. His first opportunity to teaching started as early as high school where he grew up in Peoria IL. In the late 1970’s he moved to Traverse City he taught and played in night clubs. In the 1990’s, a friend of his invited him to visit him in Nashville and the visit turned into a move that lasted for 5 years. During his time there, he taught in music stores in Nashville and played in local clubs there, one was the famous “Blue Bird Café.” While he loved living there he felt Traverse City was calling him home.

Between his knowledge teaching in stores, colleges and his extensive experience playing in clubs, he is an outstanding candidate to teach anyone from 5 to 75. Many of his students have successfully started the journey of playing a musical instrument or extended their knowledge of a music discipline with his help and instruction. Some as young as 11 have already started their careers next to us at “Northern Naturals” playing Saturday afternoons. Greg’s is located here at:
