My lessons are geared toward the individual student. I spend the first lesson getting to know the student's strengths and weaknesses, history, hobbies, and general feelings about music. This helps me to better understand what the student (or parent) is hoping to gain from taking piano lessons. My lessons are meant to produce the best possible success, and most importantly, a great time and a permanent love of music.

About Grace

I started piano lessons at the age of 3 and continued through middle school. I played the flute in the high school band and continued to pursue my love of music in college where I joined the Piano Ensemble and received a degree in Music from DePaul University. I graduated in 2015 with high honors

My 5-year old twins had their first lesson with Grace today. She was on time, got right to work, and connected with them both really well (back to back lessons). She was professional with us, and had both girls giggling at points in their lesson. They loved her and excited to practice, which is all we could ask for. We look forward to seeing her next week!

The teacher seems like she’s always in a hurry. She leaves a few minutes before it ends. She’s friendly but doesn’t make real conversation with the parent to update about my child’s progress. Knowledgeable though coz my daughter learned fast. She. Would’ve been perfect if she had a great personality

Grace was very sweet and great with my 7 year old daughter.

Kay is very knowledgeable, kind and accommodating. She is very encouraging and never makes me feel dumb when I hit a sour note. (As a beginning beginner, that happens a lot!) I am amazed at how much I have learned in such a short time!

If you are looking for an amazing teacher who is knowledgable, patient, passionate, and all-around just a fantastic person, looks no further! Mackenzie is an amazing teacher that helped me understand my range, how to properly use my breath, and how to sing like a rockstar! I highly recommend her!
Tristan
Mackenzie is a skilled educator, musician, and vocalist with diverse experiences in vocal performance: jazz, pop, musical theatre, classical...she does it all! She is a joy to sing for, and creates a comfortable, safe environment where I feel empowered to make music. Mackenzie makes singing FUN, and is so knowledgeable in helping me reach my vocal goals. I’m so glad I found her!
Joshua
Mackenzie (Mack) was an excellent teacher. I hadn't had music or voice training since middle school and she was very helpful, despite me being tone deaf. Overall, it was a great experience and now I can sing without embarrassing myself!

"Kat is a very thoughtful and patient teacher. I started off with just Ukulele lessons but she soon encouraged me broadened my horizons and work on my singing as well. She's always very prepared and focuses as much on the why as the how, providing the context that fosters more wholistic learning. I highly recommend taking lessons from her!"
