CJ Greer is currently a member of the music and music theatre faculty at the University of Nevada, Reno implementing a new musical theatre degree program and creating crossover vocal training tracks. She carries an MFA and MM in musical theatre and classical performance and pedagogy from Penn State University and a BME from the University of Illinois/Champaign-Urbana. She has performed around the world from theme park to Broadway to Carnegie Hall. She is a singer, actor, teacher and conductor with an undying love for storytelling through music.

She frequently presents at regional, national and international conferences and gives masterclasses on musical theatre vocal technique around the country. She is on the faculty of ‘Bel Canto Can Belto’ – an experiential weekend workshop introducing musical theatre vocal pedagogy to classical voice teachers and singers.

As an instructor, Greer offers private lessons and workshops in various topics relating to vocal technique and performance, audition technique and industry business. Most recently, she premiered her workshop at Boston Conservatory and with CAP 21/NYC students on Embodying Performance – a performance lab experience fusing speech, movement, acting and singing techniques in performance preparation. She was highlighted in Classical Singer magazine’s article From Mamma Mia! To Mozart (May 2019) as a flourishing cross-training performer and was interviewed for The Visceral Voice podcast (fall 2019) as an expert of vocal cross-training for careers in musical theatre.

CJ has been described as “warm, lovely, powerful, emotional” and “her beautiful voice makes her big numbers…worth the ticket price alone.” Internationally, she spent a year in Japan performing in both English and Japanese and closing Walt Disney’s longest running revue show “The Diamond Horseshoe Revue.” Greer has received multiple Helen Hayes Award* nominations for her performances.
