About Grace Music School
Since our opening in December 2001, we’ve striven to treat all our students like they’re part of our family. That’s why we’re committed to providing the highest quality music instruction in a fun, inviting atmosphere that keeps our students coming back for more.
Family Founded & Locally Operated
As members of the community ourselves, we take pride in giving back by providing scholarships to local schools, performing at charity events, and supporting other local causes. We want all students to have the opportunity to discover the joy of music.
