Stoll (his Father) and a Masters of Music Education Degree from Arizona State University where he was the Graduate Assistant in Bands studying with Dr. Richard Strange and Robert "Coach" Fleming.

He has a variety of performance experiences on trumpet ranging from being the bugler for Equestrian Shows in Utah to the Pit Orchestra for the Phoenix Little Theater, from classical playing with the Tempe Symphony and Lompoc Pops to the demanding playing of a Brass Quintet  the Maestro Brass, from the unusual antics of the Kappa Kappa Psi Dixieland Band playing at the local Phoenix Amusement Park to the Jazz styles of Chuck Ferris's Lamplighters or the Dick Clark Jazz Band located here on the Central Coast.

Greg has spent 31 years in public education, conducting Bands of all levels and abilities. He taught at Robert O Gibson Jr. High School Band for 3 years and was the Brass Band Instructor for the NSA Brass Band in Las Vegas, Nevada. He taught at McClintock High School in Tempe for 11 years.  After moving to the Central Coast he developed  Elementary Bands for the Lompoc Unified School District for 3 years while directing the Allan Hancock Jazz Band then taught The Lompoc High School Band Program for a year and taught the Band Program at Cabrillo High School for 14 years.

Some of the notable experiences with those bands, even more than the superior ratings and sweepstakes the bands earned under his direction were some of the unique trips his bands took.  The McClintock Band flew to Hawaii for 9 days over their spring break where they performed all around Hawaii, even on the Beach at Waikiki or the Cabrillo Band performing on and enjoying a 4 day Cruise out of Long Beach to Ensenada Mexico. Now after playing in the Allan Hancock band for 17 years Greg is enjoying his new role as conductor and continuing the high musical performance level and the family atmosphere of this very special group of musicians.

Richard Caliguri
Cosmetology Instructor

"Being able to teach Cosmetology has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my hairdressing career. To be able to take a new batch of students who are open to new ideas and be able to help mold them into future stylists is very rewarding. I learn as much from the students as they learn from my teaching. Being associated with Allan Hancock College has allowed me to do what I love most: teach."
