"Leela Grace is a vivacious, creative, inspiring, loving, knowledgable, and thoughtful teacher, performer, and musical mentor. Her breadth and depth of knowledge of her instruments and musical styles is astounding, but she somehow manages to avoid being intimidating. Leela builds confidence no matter the level of her students and I would recommend her to anyone, regardless of past musical experience or innate "talent". For Leela, music is community and love and joy, and it comes across in every note, every class, and every interaction. Take a class with Leela or catch one of her shows - you won't regret it!"
