About Gregor

Pianist
Falkirk
Gregor is classically trained and also plays rock, pop, ceilidh & jazz. He can sight-read, improvise and read chord charts fluently.

I studied Classical Piano and Trumpet at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama. After graduating with a BA(Musical Studies) degree, I studied jazz piano for two years at St Andrew’s University and went on to become an employee of ‘Carnaval Cruise Lines’ as a show-band musician and cocktail pianist. So far, I have enjoyed a varied musical career:  performing as an accompanist with numerous professional companies, ensembles & soloists; performing new initiatives such as the British Sinfonietta Orchestra’s ‘Computer Games Live’ series; giving solo recitals; playing throughout Scotland as a wedding ceremonial and cocktail pianist. As well as being a member of the Scottish Tango Ensemble, I am also a founding member of the Shimmy Grand Ceilidh Band, pianist and accordionist with Pacific Wedding Band and also a Sergeant in the Highland Band of the Royal Regiment of Scotland. I also enjoy teaching piano and have been employed by Fife Council, Stevenson College in Edinburgh and currently with Falkirk Council.
