Piano, Guitar And Ukulele
Grace Mason has studied piano since 2001, including taking lessons from Metro Music Makers from 2003-2013! (She was also a Federation 30-point cup winner!) She graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in Music from Young Harris College, during which time she served as an intern for Metro Music Makers. Grace was a member of the Music Teachers National Association throughout college, and she won the Edwin Gerschefski Scholarship award “For Outstanding Achievement in Piano” at Young Harris College in 2014. She was a member of Mu Phi Epsilon International Professional Music Honor Fraternity.
She has also served as worship leader at FBC Alpharetta, a piano instructor in Blairsville, Georgia, and even served as a missionary in South and Central America, where she had the opportunity to record church music with the Wayuu, an indigenous people group of Northern Colombia.
“As a teacher, I desire to individualize each lesson for my students. By tailoring each lesson to the student’s unique learning style and abilities, they will have the maximum potential for success,” Grace shares. “I like to find ‘that thing’ that the student absolutely thrives on in their music and make it a priority so that they can be challenged to grow in their skills while still maintaining their passion. I believe that as a teacher I am responsible for guiding my students in the art of technique, historical information, and general instruction, while creating an open and trusting environment that allows them bring their love of music to life.”
Grace’s second love after music is soccer. She loves all outdoor sports and activities, including hiking, kayaking and rock climbing. She knows how to drive a motorcycle and has been skydiving before!
Grace has some great advice for her students. “Practice with a purpose and a goal. Find what gives you an escape in your musical studies and use it to fuel you through the parts that are challenging. And HAVE FUN!”
