Introduction: Giving his Carnegie Hall debut at age 17, Patrick Kreeger has established himself as one of the leading musicians of his generation. Praised by The Philadelphia Inquirer for his “elegantly detailed phrasing,” as well as having “a lot to offer beyond the organ console,” he maintains a versatile career as a pianist, organist, and choral conductor. Patrick has performed in many distinguished venues around the world, including: Benaroya Hall (Seattle, WA), Meymandi Symphony Hall (Raleigh, NC), Verizon Hall (Philadelphia, PA), Bulgaria Hall (Sofia, Bulgaria), Cook Hall (St. John’s, Newfoundland), Peterborough Cathedral (U. K.), Musée d’Augustins (Toulouse, France), Kunsten Museum (Aalborg, Denmark), as well as numerous other venues in the U. S., U. K., France, Italy, Israel, and Bulgaria. He gave his symphonic debut in April 2008, performing Sergei Rachmaninoff’s first piano concerto with the North Carolina Symphony and has also been guest soloist with the Musica Sacra Chamber Orchestra, Virginia Beach Symphony, Chilliwack Symphony Orchestra, Barton College/Wilson Symphony Orchestra, and the SUNY-Purchase Conservatory Orchestra. A native of Jacksonville, Florida, Kreeger has pursued higher education at three institutions. At age 18, he was awarded a full-tuition scholarship to attend The Curtis Institute of Music, where he studied organ and piano with Alan Morrison and Susan Starr, respectively. He then received the Robert Baker scholarship to attend Yale University, where he earned his master’s degree and sacred music certificate under Martin Jean. Patrick subsequently was a C. V. Starr Doctoral Fellow at The Juilliard School, where he studied with Paul Jacobs and earned the prestigious Doctor of Musical Arts (DMA) degree. Patrick has served as the Associate Organist at New York City’s historic Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church since 2015. Additionally, he is on the music theory faculty at The Juilliard School and serves on the conducting faculty at The Curtis Institute of Music’s Young Artist Summer Program.

Piano Lessons

I had a piano lesson with Dr. Kreeger and we worked together brushing up on piano technique I had lost over the years. Dr. Kreeger was very fast at responding to my request in the Thumbtack app and we were able to set a date and time quickly and efficiently. Our lesson was via Zoom and he watched me play a couple of different pieces I was learning on my own. He was able to encompass all areas of playing piano that if practiced consistently, would help improve my technique over time. We discussed everything from proper posture and set up, body mechanics, and to how to best stylize phrasing of some of the music I was learning. I appreciated his approach to technique and how to practice; he was able to tailor the lesson to meet my specific needs and help me practice more effectively. I hope I can work with him again in the future and would highly recommend him if you are also looking to take piano lessons!

Patrick Kreeger is a wonderful teacher to work with both in a musical and academic setting. His command of music, whether it is on stage as a performer or as a teacher in the classroom, is prodigious. His warm character is accented with humor, making his teaching style inviting and enjoyable. Patrick represents a rare blend of excellent musicianship and scholarship, and he comes with my highest recommendation to anyone looking for music instruction.
