Grace Oh takes voice and piano lessons at Harris Academy of the Arts. She also plays piccolo in marching band and flute in concert band at school. This 15 year old, who is in the top 3% of her class, aspires to become a general surgeon or an anesthesiologist. Her favorite classes in school cover anything related to math and science. In addition to her studies in school, band activities, and private lessons, Grace also joined Science Olympiad to challenge herself. Put all that together – this girl is a go-getter!
Cristina Vlad, Grace’s piano instructor, has seen Grace’s hard work and dedication firsthand in lessons: “Being involved in several activities, she is showing improvement in her piano playing every week.” We snuck into one of Grace’s recent piano lessons to share some footage. You’ll find that she and Cristina “get down to business” and work hard – and it really pays off!
