Why Choose Us?

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 Timein ONE location!  This saves our students time and money since a family can learn multiple instruments on the same day.

A Proven Track Record of Excellence

Visit our client reviews below and see what our students and parents are saying.  Our full-time mission is providing music education of the highest quality and we have a proven track record in support of this. At our core we are a music school and not a music retail store that provides music lessons as an ancillary service to their retail business.

Great Locations

Our Fort Salonga school is conveniently located on 25A in Fort Salonga, just west of Sunken Meadow Parkway in the IGA Shopping Center. Parking is plentiful and there is never any traffic or busy streets to cross. Our Steinway location is 505 Walt Whitman Road in Melville just South of the Walt Whitman Mall and only a couple of minutes from the Northern State Parkway.

Month-to-Month Lessons

Unlike some other music schools, we do not require semester minimums for lessons.  Every student is on a month-to-month basis and you are not required to commit to a long-term contract.

Multiple Performance Opportunities Throughout the Year

As a music school committed to musical excellence, we place a strong emphasis on providing multiple performance opportunities throughout the year. These are low pressure and optional for our students and there are no admission fees for these recitals. In addition, our more advanced students have the opportunity to perform at Carnegie Hall.

Generous Family Discounts

We offer discounts of up to 20% for multiple siblings or lessons.

State of the Art Modern Facilities

Both schools are equipped with the technology to deliver lessons on-line should the student desire or be unable to attend lessons in person.  At our Fort Salonga location, our students and parents enjoy a professional waiting room with comfortable chairs, bottled water, and Wi-Fi.  Our school is comprised of 7 music studios with a full view of French Doors.  Our Steinway location includes 9 music studios and complimentary coffee served fresh in our Steinway Café.  In addition, this location boasts a beautiful concert space, equipped with a Steinway Concert Grand Piano.  Both of our schools also feature top of the line Steinway designed pianos.

Unique Steinway & Sons Relationship

Besides being a Steinway Education Partner, we are proud to be the first and only music school integrated into a Steinway & Sons owned showroom.  Our school was selected over many excellent and long-established music schools on Long Island and we work hard to uphold the trust they have placed in us.  Ask us about our “Rent a Piano for the Cost of a Lesson” Program, which is exclusive to Grace Music School, and allows students to rent an Essex Model EUP-108C piano for the cost of one lesson per month.
