April 2013: Spring Recital with Susan Peck
December 2012: Family & Neighbor Music
Meg is an awesome teacher! She is always positive and energetic and patient. When I struggle with a piece or exercise, she uses metaphors to help me understand.
Taking lessons with Meg has made me a more determined person.
Meg is always helpful and insightful. Whenever I need help or am struggling, she tells me of numerous ways to make the tone sound brilliant, or ways to understand and play the music correctly. I am very grateful to Meg. -- Katy Kimes
Active students perform twice a year in the Spring and Fall recitals. The Fall recital consists of performances of small ensembles; duos, trios, and the like. Playing groups are formed with other Grace Notes Studio students. You may also form an ensemble with family members or other individuals upon approval of Mary Ellen Grace.
The Spring recital is your opportunity to perform a solo work, with or without piano accompaniment. Accompaniment may be piano, guitar, accordion or another chord-playing instrument. In most cases, the music will be chosen for you in accordance with your skill level. However, I am always open to student ideas for solo/ensemble music choice.
These events are your chance to show your family and friends all that you have learned in the preceding months. I find great inspiration in watching my students of all ages expressing themselves musically. It is exciting to hear them become the talented musicians they dream of.
Get some inspiration by clicking on any of the dates below. You can view photos, listen to recordings and in some cases view and listen to video recordings of past performances.
Perform at next recital
