Mathea G

Mathea Grigore-Ilea was born, raised and educated in Romania. She learned to play the piano by watching and copying her older brother. At the age of five and a half, she was admitted to the same school of music her brother attended, after passing rigorous musical aptitude tests. She then attended the National Music Conservatory in Bucharest, Romania, from which she graduated with a Bachelor degree in Music Pedagogy with a Minor in Music Performance.
 
Mathea has experience in multiple aspects of musical language, including music theory, solfege,  harmony, counterpoint, choral singing, composition, musical forms, history of music, piano performance, chamber music, accompaniment, and choral conducting. As a young musician, recitals, piano competitions, music festivals, international tours, and master classes with renowned musicians were all part of her life that she truly cherished. Winning piano competitions [names of competitions?] and learning from the best teachers [names of several?] motivated her to work harder and harder each day and explore new meanings of the musical horizon.

In 2001 Mathea emigrated to the United States, settled in Virginia, and joined the Northern Virginia Music Teachers Association. She taught piano and music theory in her own piano studio as well as in music academies, and prepared students for successful admission into music conservatories. Mathea discovered she loves being around and teaching students of different ages. Her students' accomplishments have brought her tears of joy!
