I believe music has the power to change lives and bring out the best in every child.
Hi, my name is Michelle Grigg and I teach both piano and voice.
I have taught music lessons for over 30 years and I am also a Music Therapist. Because of being a Music Therapist and having taught for so many years, I have worked with a wide variety of children and adults who’s abilities range from profoundly disabled to gifted.
My philosophy on teaching is that learning to love music and to be able to use music to make yourself and others feel better is far more important than being a concert pianist or famous opera singer; This is why I teach with a very relaxed atmosphere, encourage the student to help choose their own music (Disney to Tchaikovsky), and only give constructive comments.
How fast you or your child progresses depends on how much you or he/she wants to practice and progress. Some of my students have gone on to major in music at universities, but most play because it’s fun. I look forward to meeting you.
If you would like to speak with me to ask individual questions, feel free to contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope to see you soon.
