An aspiring educator and performer, Gregory Joseph Thompson began playing guitar and oboe when he was 10 years old. After a year of middle school concert band and two years of private guitar lessons, he took a break from music until his senior year of high school, when he added the piano and bassoon to his repertoire of familiar instruments.
Gregory is a 2015 graduate of Fernley High School, and currently attends Truckee Meadows Community College (TMCC) in Reno. He plans to transfer to the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR), and will pursue the Bachelor of Music in Music Education degree.
He plans to major in music education and minor in music composition. Gregory hopes to one day conduct his compositions in venues around the world.
