Why Grace Notes?
Comprehensive musical experience
We are all born with innate musical senses, but specific training is required to fully understanding the language of music both intellectually and intuitively - and ultimately use it to express your feelings! Our instructors will guide you to dive into a wealth of musical language while developing instrument-specific skills.
True music training is never linear. While we typically start with rote learning due to its natural tangibility, our trained instructors will quickly move you beyond this point and open your senses open up to experience and the ability to express music from within.
Coaching & accountability
All successful people in the world enjoy help from coaches, understanding they can bypass unnecessary struggles and achieve greater success more quickly with professional support. In the same sense, our instructors are here for you to help you become a greater version of yourself through your musical training.
MESSAGE FROM THE FOUNDER
Don't Invest in Traditional Music Lessons
Did you know that research states 82% of adults wish they took music lessons as a child and only 31% of children currently take music lessons? Moreover, who knows how many of these children have truly experienced the joy of expressing themselves through music?
I’ve met countless "former" pianists who lament that they never enjoyed their lessons or touched their piano again after earning a specific RCM certification. One thing they have in common? They only learned music in the traditional way, with too much empasis placed in reading notes rather than total musicianship. In the absence of written notes, they are musically mute. I know the corresponding sense of humiliation and embarrassment because I was once in their shoes!
At Grace Notes, we guide our students to experience a deep sense of joy and satisfaction from learning the language of music so that they can use these feelings to express their unique selves: not become slaves to sheet music. Rising to the occasion as confident performers and achieving high scores on exams are inevitable side effects as our students grow up to become well-rounded, thriving musicians.
