Grace Ferguson, Piano Teacher
Grace Ferguson is a Pianist, Composer and Sound Designer with more than 10 years piano teaching experience.
Grace studied at the Melbourne Conservatorium specialising in classical piano performance under the guidance of esteemed pianists Janine Sowden and Olga Kharitonova. Her interest is widespread, spanning a variety of musical genres and collaborations with inter-disciplinary artists for film, theatre and live music performance.
With over a decade of experience in piano teaching, Grace employs traditional methodology, whilst actively seeking alternative ways to provide music education for children and adults. She encourages her students to prepare and sit AMEB exams but equally enjoys teaching students who employ their lessons simply for pleasure or art therapy. Grace has also assisted several established musicians build on their theoretical knowledge, which they have subsequently applied to their own creative projects.
Recent, notable works that Grace has been involved with include; solo piano album Amator (2017), an International Piano Dayduet with Sarah May Chadwick (Spirit Level Records / Yamaha Australia, 2019), pianist and musical collaborator for We All Know What is Happening by Samara Hersch and Lara Thoms which premiered at Arts House, Melbourne and since toured to Campbelltown Arts Centre, Sydney and Vitalstatistix, Adelaide (2017/8/9) and won the ‘Best Contemporary/ Experimental Performance’ 2018 Greenroom Awards, Your Heart’s So Hot O Sister in collaboration with Rose Riebl and Lilian Steiner for Melbourne Music Week (2018).
Grace is also currently one of 15 women, across all creative disciplines selected to take part in the Melbourne Theatre Company’s 2019 Women in Theatre Program, for which she is mentored by Composer and Sound Designer Jethro Woodward.
