NEW WILMINGTON, Pa.– Professor R. Tad Greig continues to be very active as a clinician in local public school music programs. On October 17, Dr. Greig visited Beaver Area High School where he provided a clinic for the high school and middle school bands—both instructed by alumnus J.P. Scanga. In addition to numerous guest conducting engagements and adjudicating at music assessment festivals, Dr. Greig commonly does four or five clinics per year.
“I enjoy getting out into the public schools and working with young musicians and my colleagues who do such great work,” said Greig. “What made this clinic so special was working with one of our own graduates, Mr. J.P. Scanga, who is doing such an amazing job as a musician, educator and advocate for music. I worked with two ensembles full of engaged, articulate, inquisitive and talented musicians who were eager to learn and make wonderful music.”
Greig has been with Westminster since 1993. As a professor of music and director of instrumental activities, he teaches courses in instrumental methods, band literature, and instrumental and advanced conducting. He oversees the Titan Marching Band and conducts the Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Band.
