Greg Gibson


Based in the Blue Mountains west of Sydney, Greg has been working professionally as a musician, both performing and teaching since 1975.

He studied at the NSW State Conservatorium of Music under Don Burrows and the cream of Australian jazz educators, having previously been taught clarinet by
Ian Morgan and Prof Isabelle Carter (both from the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra). Since the 1980s he has worked in numerous big bands, world music bands, jazz bands and chamber ensembles throughout Australia, and overseas, with the occasional orchestral gig thrown in. The bands he has led include Lip Service (sax quartet), Banana Republic (contemporary salsa) and Zero Hour (chamber jazz).

He has taught throughout Sydney at private schools including PLC Sydney and  The McDonald College. Recently, he finished seven years at Mitchell Conservatorium in Bathurst and currently, he teaches privately and tutors for
the University of New South Wales.

As a music educator, Greg has written some innovative, adventurous and challenging technical work books that take advantage of modern technologies.

Greg can be heard playing regularly with the contemporary tango band, Alturas, which released its first cd, Café con Tango, in April 2013.
