As an educator, Dr. Gregoire’s own rich educational

background was fostered by his maternal grandfather’s unfaltering belief in education as central to one’s identity

that can never be taken away.


He is driven by the belief that through education we

promote understanding, and with understanding

we foster appreciation and cultivate advocacy.


He is the Director of Education for the Dallas Girls Chorus

and serves as faculty accompanist for the Greenhill School

in Addison and additional schools in the Dallas metroplex, nurturing a love for music in the lives of students

and choirs he supports.



My love for education started early on. My maternal grandfather encouraged all his kids and grandkids to go as far as possible with education – noting it as central to one’s identity and something that could never be taken away. And, as I’ve gotten older, I’ve grown to realize how we fear that which we don’t know. So, why not teach people? Education offers understanding. Understanding promotes appreciation and even advocacy. 


My love of learning has propelled me through four degrees and a plethora of different certifications. I love to study, to research, to investigate. I even love the glorious piece of paper at the end signifying completion, attainment, and success. But it’s more than that. It's having access to the wealth of information and in turn, exploring, refining, and embodying it. 


I've come to realize my gifting includes processing and indexing vast amounts of information easily and effortlessly. I resonate with the term “curator of knowledge” – in life and in my coaching. I bring to my sessions and my performances an extensive background of reading and studying in order to provide the most helpful information for the moment. 


As an arts leader, my training in Arts Management offered me the practical business side to the developed creative training as a musician. This pairing helps me help others engage and reach their dreams and ambitions.


Go Green!


Gregoire’s final project for his D.M.A., “Toward a ‘Green’ Organ: Sustainability and Organ Building,” combined a personal passion and school-sponsored initiative of sustainability in researching methods organ builders use to directly and indirectly promote sustainable practices in organ building. The project garnered the attention and publicity from the institution, as well as publication of part one in the Spring 2015 issue of The Tracker by the Organ Historical Society.
