Congrats Mr. Greger!

On Saturday, March 30, 2019, West Allis-West Milwaukee School District music teacher, Scott Greger, will be recognized with a Certificate of Excellence in General Music from the Civic Music Association of Milwaukee. This will be a collaborative event with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra prior to that evening’s performance of Brahms’ A German Requiem.  Civic Music and the MSO partner annually to recognize area music teachers and administrators nominated by their colleagues and/or students.  The event is held in March to coincide with “Music in Our Schools” Month.


Civic Music is a non-profit organization that provides and supports music education and performance opportunities for young musicians in the five county greater Milwaukee area for over 100 years.  Reaching over 1,000 young musicians in the community last year alone, Civic Music nurtures emerging artists with programming focused mainly on solo performance. Participating instrumentalists and vocalists take part in a variety of unique opportunities to refine their skills and grow as musicians.


“As a colleague, Scott is always open to collaborating with his band and orchestra colleagues as well as

his other elementary music colleagues in the district.  I am very fortunate to work with Scott and see the wonderful musical experiences he brings to his students and the West Allis community, “ says nominating West Allis-West Milwaukee School District orchestra teacher, Casey Unger.  


Mr. Greger currently teaches general music at Irving elementary school, and has also taught at Wilson, Lincoln, Horace Mann, and Madison elementary schools. This is his twelfth year teaching in the District, and fifteenth year overall.  He previously taught in Oconomowoc and Janesville, Wisconsin. Currently, Scott teaches students from 4 year-old kindergarten to fifth grade. Irving has a diverse group of students and staff that feature a large population of students with special needs. Working with this group of students is challenging, yet incredibly rewarding.


Scott received his Bachelor of Arts from St. Olaf College in 2003, and a Master of Music from UW-Milwaukee in 2014. He is an active member of Ascension Lutheran Church in Waukesha where he sings, plays handbells, and works with high school youth. He currently sings with the Jubilate Chorale to keep up his love of choral music. Scott will celebrate the tenth anniversary to his wife Sheri in October, and they have a son, Eli, who enjoys everything about being three, including singing, dancing, and monster trucks.
