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.

Retail Store Grand Opening – May 26, 2012
