Client Reviews

Fort Salonga Location Reviews

Impeccable management. High quality teachers that go above and beyond to care for their students in a way that is both authentic and goal driven. It’s clear there’s true passion and patience in how teachers approach their craft and cater their own unique musicianship to meet a spectrum of needs. I’m truly impressed by this family run business and the carefully curated way each student is paired with a trained expert. I’m struck by just how much this school prioritizes cultivating a life long love of music and I for one will be forever touched by their generosity of spirit and willingness to serve their community. 10 out of 10 would recommend.

It is very clear that the staff & owners care about their students. Everyone who works there is extremely kind.

My daughter has been going to Grace music school for 3 years and loves it. The instructors are so patient and knowledgeable and have taught my daughter so much! I would highly recommend!

Melville Location Reviews

The teachers

Kings Park, NY
Grace Music School has amazing instructors who have always been patient and helpful to my son who has special needs! Thank you !!!

My daughter really enjoys her lessons with Nicki and looks forward to seeing her every week. Her confidence and her abilities have both increased and Nicki’s encouragement and support have really reinforced my daughter’s love of making music. She has been making recordings, overlaying 3 part harmonies while accompanying herself on ukelele. And as for Grace Music itself, we can’t thank you enough for finding a way to keep this connection during these isolating times, and of course for your ever present kindness and flexibility!
