About Matrell Grismer
I believe there is a fundamental need to create, whether: interpreting the music of the master composers, improvising on a favorite melody, or composing one’s own special piece; most people love music and have the desire to make music themselves. In lessons, I work to equip my students to pursue their own musical goals. Music theory is a key faculty in the study of music, and makes for an intelligent musician that will progress through their studies more rapidly. Lessons are adaptive to student abilities, interests, and performance needs. Whether talent shows, recitals, church services, family celebrations, or for relaxation, I encourage each student to pursue their interests and favorite genres to express themselves creatively.
Lessons and performances enhance positive traits in each students’ self discipline, self- expression, self-confidence, and self-esteem. Students learn to set and achieve goals. Coordination skills and concentration levels are both improved. With all of these benefits in mind, I strive to make each lesson an enjoyable, rewarding experience that enriches the lives of my students and instills a lifelong love of music. Seeing how music is universal, all fundamentals of music learned in the study of piano readily transfer to all other instruments. My goal is to have each student advance upon their musical journey; confident in their knowledge and application of music, and encouraged to share their hard work with those around them.
