Rebecca Grove is an Associate Professor of Music in the String Department, where she has served since 1992. She holds both her undergraduate and graduate degrees in Music Education from BJU. She began teaching private violin lessons in high school, and still enjoys seeing the small weekly successes of her students, whether they are playing “The Snake Charmer” or the Mendelssohn violin concerto!
Rebecca teaches string pedagogy classes, and private violin and viola lessons. She also coaches string student chamber groups. She directs the middle school orchestra, which receives Superior ratings in MENC’s Concert Festival. She also has coached many future string teachers in conducting this orchestra. She has judged in local MENC Solo and Ensemble Festivals, MTNA high school scholarship contests, and ASTA competitions.
She began as an apprentice in the BJU String Instrument Repair Shop while still in high school, and is now in charge of that shop, which services the many school-owned instruments and bows and well as those owned by the BJU family and friends.
Rebecca is active in the music ministry of Mount Calvary Baptist Church in Greenville, and directs the youth strings there. Her goal in teaching is to, as a servant, be gentle, apt to teach, and patient, and in meekness instruct her students to be the best and most Christ-like musicians they can be. (II Timothy 2:24-25)
