Greg Percifield

Dueling Pianist

Hello.  My name is Greg Percifield. Welcome to my website!  You’re certainly welcome here, although I have to say that I’ve really built the site just for myself.  It’s a place for me to stay focused by organizing my thoughts, schedule, and goals.

I’ve found having a blog helps me to stay on track, stay motivated, and stay productive.  Hopefully, you’ll find something here that interests you.  If you do, please be sure to leave a comment.  I love talking with other people about similar interests!

Who am I?  In a nutshell, I’m a nut who enjoys music.  I study piano and voice every day.  I am a dueling pianist.  I enjoy my friends and family.  Sometimes there is alcohol involved, but I tend to regret that the next morning.

But I did say ‘in a nutshell.’  You’ll find more articles about singing, playing piano, and other things that interest me, throughout the site.  And if you’d like to know a bit more about me.  Here is an extended bio.

iPod Conspiracies And Lawsuits

It wasn’t too long ago, when I watched a special health report about the benefits of pizza.  Apparently lycopene, which is found in tomatoes and tomato sauce, can help protect against some cancers.   Forget about the high cholesterol, obesity and  heart disease...

Chimpanzee Sex Leads Da’ Zoo to Sony Success

And you thought you had heard it all.  This is a perfect example of video/media influence, and it doesn't come from MTV, VH1, or any major network.  Once again, a bit of YouTube monkey business has garnished enough attention to draw in serious...
