My job is to help each voice student individually attain both technique and communication skills, using a variety of teaching tools, while remaining sensitive to each student’s psychology and physiology.

Thomas Gregg joined the Conservatory in 1999 and is a professor of voice.

Gregg has been a tenor soloist with numerous orchestras and choral groups and a choral singer with distinguished ensembles such as Boston's King's Chapel choir and the Handel and Haydn Society. Gregg has also performed with early music ensembles in New England, Ohio, and the South, and his opera appearances have included productions in New Orleans, Memphis, and Columbus as well as historical operas in Boston and Washington, D.C. In addition, Gregg enjoys an active career in recitals and chamber music, especially with harpist Emily Laurance as the duo DoubleAction. He has also worked closely with a number of composers to present new vocal works written for him. Gregg’s European debut was at the Franz Schubert Institute in Austria.

Throughout his career, Gregg has won numerous performance and academic awards. He has given lectures in vocal pedagogy and musical theater education, including a presentation in 2015 at the international Musical Theatre Educators' Alliance (MTEA) conference in Perth, Australia. An Ohio native, he earned a B.M. from Capital University, an M.M. from the University of Michigan, and a D.M.A. from the Ohio State University. From 1988 to 1998, he was an associate professor at the University of Mississippi. Gregg currently serves as secretary of the Conservatory’s chapter of the music honor society Pi Kappa Lambda, for which he previously served as president. Gregg’s former students have careers as professional singers, actors, voice teachers, and music educators.
