Best comprehensive music education in Suffolk County

Grace Music School offers private instruction in piano, voice, guitar, string, woodwind, drums, ensembles and early childhood music development classes – Music Fun Time – in ONE location! This saves our students time and money, as one family can take multiple instruments on the same day. Other music schools may offer multiple instruments, but we are one of only a few schools that offer Piano, Voice, String, Woodwind, Guitar and Drums in the same location. We also offer early morning and lunch time lessons for homeschoolers, retirees, college students and working professionals.

Exceptional Teachers

Our teachers are dedicated to learning about your personal musical goals and helping you achieve them. All of our music instructors have either conservatory or music school training and most have professional performance experience. We select teachers that have warm personalities, are extremely friendly, and are dedicated to teaching you the style of music that you want to learn. We are confident that we have the right teacher to help you achieve your musical goals whether you are a beginner or a seasoned musician. Many of our teachers have attended some of the top music schools in the nation including Julliard, Manhattan School of Music, NYU, Rice University, Indiana University, Mannes College, Stony Brook University, Aaron Copland School of Music.
