About me:

A pianist, composer, and recent graduate of Central Michigan University who is currently based in the Great Lakes Bay region, Grace strives to connect diverse musical audiences with her authentic and engaging music.

As an educator, Grace has taught beginner to intermediate students, with both of her presentations on teaching being accepted and presented at the MTNA Collegiate Chapters Piano Pedagogy Symposiums, in 2019 and 2020 respectively. As a performer, she has graced the stage at several Central Michigan University events, including her Senior Recital performed in the spring of 2021. As a composer, Grace’s works have been performed by soloists and ensembles alike, with her debut brass quintet piece garnering her a third-place award in the winter of 2019.

When not teaching, performing, or composing, Grace enjoys spending time with her calico cat, Isadora, relaxing at local coffee shops, and reading
whatever she can get her hands on.
