Senior students that have been in the program for more than 11 years are now church accompanists and applying for music scholarships for colleges, despite their various majors.
Students have been scholarship winners in local and out-of-state summer camps for piano study.
Every year various students have won the State Piano Contest (MMTA) and participated in the State Piano Honors Concert at the Conventions Center.
Four studio students have received the Paderewski Gold Medal from the National Guild of Piano Teachers for their tenth participation on National Auditions.
It is a joy to guide students through their path from discovery to mastery of the instrument and musical language.

1- Commited students and families will benefit the most of the comprehensive program at Grant Piano Studio.
Expectation is that weekly assignments are completed by students and that progress is achieved from week to week. Small, consistent steps.
2- Adults returning to their studies and high schoolers who need piano as a supplement to percussion or just to get better at it. No participation on any auditions or group lessons are expected from theses students.
Classical Minnesota Public Radio Varsity Competition: my former student is in the Showcase Concert on May 11, 2019. It is an amazing event- only five high school students from all over Minnesota playing all instruments were selected for this event broadcast live on FM 99.5! Very cool
