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 C.

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. I have been teaching music and piano for several years. I love, enjoy, and welcome students of all ages. I enjoy teaching all styles of piano music and I believe in catering teaching styles, methods, and pieces to the individual student. I strongly believe that music lessons can be happy, fun experiences. Learning an instrument provides academic, mental, physical, and emotional benefits and strength, but it can also be a truly enjoyable experience to anticipate each week! I look forward to meeting you!

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 has been truly wonderful with both my 5 year old daughter as well as with my own adult lessons. With no music background and hectic schedules, I am satisfied with the progress in both of our cases. Love her professional yet personable demeanor as well. Delightful chemistry with my young daughter which certainly promotes continuous interest in her early age group. Has already been recommended.

Grace was an extremely nice teacher. I was an adult, beginner student. She taught me all the necessary basics as well as including songs in my lessons that I had sought out and wanted to learn. When she teaches you, she takes into account your musical taste/preference in choosing which pieces you will work on. Her patience is outstanding when you struggle and her ability to give you confidence in your playing style is an addition that makes the experience wonderful and everlasting. I highly recommend Grace, as her I've seen her work with both adults and children and she is capable of altering her plans in order to make them more specific to each individual rather than grouping us all into the same category.

I love the way Mrs. Ciccolella works with kids. She is good at assessing different needs and tailoring her teaching style to each child - - and her love of music is truly infectious!

My son doesn't love piano, but Grace is very patient and makes the lessons fun. My husband and I are happy with his progress.
