Able to teach a variety of methods, she approaches each student with consideration for their learning style and unique goals in mind. A student herself for over twenty years, Gratia uses her knowledge of theory and harmony combined with an emphasis on ear training to bring about a strong understanding of music, in its many facets, to her students.
