  • believes that the study of music promotes a sense of achievement, therapeutic value, the development of self-discipline, coordination, concentration, creativity, self-confidence, imagination, tactical skills, the ability to analyze and evaluate information and develop more awareness and sensitivity. There are many medical studies that prove that studying a musical instrument improves a persons ability in mathematics, long and short term memory retention, scientific and other skills. Other studies also show that participating in music promotes the state of mental and physical relaxation. As students progress to the point of being able to play with other musicians, they will learn about the team work and conflict resolution skills required to succeed. This skill will help the youth mature and use this in their normal life style. The goal of Greg Madison Music Studio is to be one of the very best music learning facilities around. He will consistently provide a valuable education, as well as motivation that will enrich the student and encourage their passion for music on a continuous basis for the rest of their lives.



Loving the sound of music as a youngster is what got me involved in playing a musical instrument. It was this love of music that caused me to want something bad enough to work at it way above average. It helped me develop patience, discipline and commitment to succeed at something stronger than anything before. This was the first time that I realized if you want something bad enough, you will find a way to get it through hard work. This taught me the way you can accomplish other things you want in life.


I started out as a guitar player at age thirteen. Within the first three weeks, I already realized this is what I wanted to do for a profession. After a few years of lessons, I became involved with various bands playing church, school, and private affairs for hire. One of the bands I played in at age sixteen worked at writing original music. This band produced two singles, one of which got air time on major rock “n” roll stations. This band had a good potential to do some very nice things, but the work ethic of the band was its worst down fall and caused its demise.


It was at this time I decided to pursue teaching guitar. Within a very short time as a teacher I realized I had a very natural ability to teach and motivate my students. My love of music and desire to help people became a very natural fit. Over many years of teaching and self learning I now play and teach over twenty instruments in my Bergenfield, New Jersey studio. I teach in the styles of rock, funk, blues, R & B, jazz, latin, bluegrass. folk, reggae, gospel, and more.


I'm one of the leading teachers in the field. I've taught musicians that have been playing in bands professionally in many different parts of the world. One of the great many joys of teaching come from students who tell me that because of the interest I have created for them, they intend to play for the rest of their lives. Many of these students have told me they had tried lessons in the past unsuccessfully and were glad they decided to try it again.


Greg Madison Music Publishing will be publishing books on several of the instruments and styles of music I play.
