Grace Shim is a classically-trained pianist and a piano teacher. As a winner of The 3rd US Youth Piano & String Concours of Hymn, she performed in Carnegie Hall at thirteen years of age. This opened up numerous other opportunities for solo performances; one notable performance was a festival in Smithsonian Museum in 2007. Grace has created recordings, accompanied soloists and ensembles, became a church accompanist (which she has fourteen years of experience), was a wedding pianist and held a full hour solo recital by age fifteen.

Grace earned a double bachelor degrees in Piano Performance and Bible at Cairn University. After taking organ lessons for most of her college career, she utilized her organ skills to be a church organist after college graduation. Grace gave her first piano lesson as a college student, and has been teaching at Moon School of Music since 2019. Her teaching passions are patiently helping students become proficient on the piano in ways that doesn’t feel strenuous, and getting to know her students, then connecting over common interests. Outside of music, Grace loves to go on long drives to the countryside, walk around historic old towns and play with makeup.
