About Grace Ann

I have enjoyed teaching piano and voice to students of all ages for 20+ years. I hold a bachelor's degree in music education (K-12) and a master's in music therapy. While most of my experience has been in individual instruction, I also have experience in the public school setting and church choirs.

I believe the most successful teaching will be encouraging, building skill upon skill and thus building confidence in the student. My experience has taught me to pay special attention to teaching students HOW to practice. Because students spend most of their practice time apart from me, I want to give them the tools to use that time most effectively. I have developed a list of "Practice Pointers" that I give to all my students.


In college, I studied music education with a major in voice and a minor in piano. I developed an interest in the effect of music on behavior, and went on to get a master's degree in music therapy. I received certification to teach in the public schools and became a registered music therapist. After several years experience in the public schools, I married and started a family. At this time I decided to teach private music lessons out of my home.

I have a passion for music, and enjoy teaching students how to gain much pleasure and enjoyment from learning to play the piano and/or improve their singing. I am very excited about being able to use technology to make music instruction more convenient and accessible.

If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Piano

I studied piano starting at age 8 and continued through college. I graduated college with a bachelor's degree in music education with a major in voice and a minor in piano. I used my piano skills every day as a music therapist in the public schools. As a choir director and voice instructor, I used my piano skills to accompany the choirs and my private students. I have also taught private piano lessons for 20+ years.

Voice (Music)

I graduated college with a bachelor's degree in music education with a major in voice. I also studied voice in graduate school and was hired as a Soprano soloist at a local church. I have sung in many choirs, including the Jacksonville Symphony Chorus which required a rigorous audition. I have directed church and school choirs of all ages for 20 years. I have taught private voice lessons for 20 years.

Very Knowledgeable instructor

I am taking online piano lessons with Grace Ann. She is very patient and makes new concepts easy to understand. My husband could not believe how much I improved after my first lesson. And it is so convenient not to have to leave home for my lessons.
