Grace taught my twin girls for over 3 years. In that time she was able to make remarkable progress teaching them piano and ukulele concurrently. She also had a particular talent for getting through to the more stubborn of the two. She is a talented musician and fantastic educator.
Grace is a wonderful music educator. She is passionate about music and knows how to engage young kids who are starting out on their music journey. She is patient and makes every effort to have fun during piano class. Our daughter loves learning about the different genres in music including classical, jazz, and contemporary music. As parents we appreciate Grace’s flexibility in combining the various teaching principles in music to enhance our child’s learning experience. She always takes time to discuss our daughter’s progress and seeks our feedback to enhance home practice. Music education is a life long investment and we recommend Grace to anyone who wants to learn how to play the piano and appreciate music in life. Thank you Grace for teaching our daughter for over 2 years. It is amazing to watch her bloom as a musician and looking forward to seeing her continue under your guidance.
Grace is the best piano teacher I have ever had. She has constantly encouraged me to participate in a variety of different competitions and recitals, challenging me to reach even higher. With her help, I was able to win awards in many of my competitions. Her commitment to her students' development makes her an excellent piano teacher. She is always going the extra mile to help her students’ growth.
My children started learning piano when they were 4 years old with Grace in her Yamaha group lessons, then continued with private lessons at her home studio. Grace is an excellent music teacher. She is professional, motivating and very well organized. Both of my children are progressing very well in their music journey with Grace and have won awards in local and provincial music festivals. We are very fortunate to have Grace as our piano teacher.
I began piano lessons with Grace at the age of 31 and have been with her for over a year now. Her teaching approach is uniquely tailored for adult learners like me, making it vastly superior to learning on my own. Within this time, I’ve been elated to discover that I can play numerous beautiful music pieces. Her lessons provide a welcoming break from the daily stresses of life. With Grace, I feel inspired, supported and genuinely enjoy or sessions. I believe other adults will find the same experience.
