*** Lesson Details ***
During the first lesson, I will discuss with the student about their personal goal. I would like to see what the students have been working on and I will suggest materials that will help the students to develop their musicianship.
My lessons are usually pretty laid back. However, I do expect student to come with some preparation.
I believe that strong foundation is very important for young children. Ear training, sight-reading, music theory, and technique will all be covered in our sessions. Every session students will be assigned pieces to work on throughout the week. Students are also encouraged to bring pieces that they would love to learn!


*** Studio Equipment ***
grand piano in living room seating for parents

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical piano.

Grace Is Tops!

By the end of May, I will have been working with Grace for six months. During that time, I have learned so much! I now feel I understand how to attack a new piano piece, and I am slowly gaining skill in executing it. My love for the instrument has simply skyrocketed!

Grace has an amazing skill set. Not only does she possess expert knowledge of the piano, but she exhibits that unique ability to convey her knowledge to others, in a straightforward, engaging, and often humorous manner.

Each lesson fires me to learn more and more, and I am very happy with the results!

Excellent teacher! Nice, professional and fun to work to work with.

Grace embodies all that means music. Her passion for teaching students translates into a great experience of having her as an piano instructor. She is fun and professional at the same time. She stays on task and helps me improve my piano skills even as an adult beginner. I recommend Grace to anyone in the Baltimore area and beyond.

Grace is first-rate!

I am so happy to be able to work with Grace! Not only does she display an expert knowledge of the piano, but also she is a natural teacher!

She sees in an instant every performance issue and then makes clear, effective suggestions on how to correct each problem. She is very kind and encouraging, as well! I have thoroughly enjoyed every lesson!

really enjoying the experience

Grace is doing a fantastic job. i have taken many lessons before and have failed because the teacher doesn't listen, and imposes whatever they want you to do. Grace actually cares about what is important to me.
