    Thomas F. Lembo, PE, Ft. Salonga

  • We are very pleased with our 8-year old daughter’s musical development at Grace Music School. She has developed a strong foundation in piano during her first year of lessons and truly enjoys practicing and working with her teacher, Kerry. The entire staff is extremely talented, supportive and always a pleasure. The independent music rooms are a great learning environment and conducive to the one on one attention the teachers provide. Our daughter is looking forward to her next recital and we look forward to her continued progress at Grace Music School.

    Walter Ruiter, Ft. Salonga

  • My daughter started piano at Grace Music a year and a half ago, when she was 5. Grace’s teaching helps her feel successful with each new song and she looks forward to her weekly lessons. My daughter says “She love it so much”. After listening to his sister play for hours at home, my son asked to for lessons too. Our family is very fortunate to have a great music school close to home with dedicated instructors and a helpful staff.

  • My son Andy studies piano at Grace Music School. We came to GMS from another instructor and have been nothing but impressed! GMS offers a warm family atmosphere, high-quality instruction, and positive encouragement and reinforcement. Andy participated in NYSSMA for the first time this year and the feedback and score he received reflected the outstanding teaching and support he experiences each week at GMS…In addition to his playing ability and confidence in performing, his knowledge and understanding of the vocabulary of music has grown by leaps and bounds… This is a true music community!

    Michelle Burget, Ft. Salonga

  • Over the past year, my son David has begun taking guitar lessons at the Grace Music School. Learning to play an instrument has brought David tremendous joy! Furthermore, taking guitar lessons has increased David’s self-esteem and has helped his creativity. David adores his guitar teacher and we are so grateful to send David to a music school that has been so clearly built on integrity and professionalism. Finally, the warmth and caring nature of the owners is the icing on the cake at this phenomenal music school.

  • Grace Music School approaches everything with excellence. From lessons to recitals to how she runs her business, Grace has been a joy to know. Her love of what she does comes out in her big smile of greeting when we meet with her each week and the care she shows each student. Under her superb instruction, my children’s love for music as well as their proficiency in piano technique, performance and approach to practice has grown immeasurably.
