Services for Students. GraceNotes does not provide program annotation services or undertake research for students at any level. We believe that learning to do one’s own research and write one’s own program notes are essential components of every musician’s education. Students seeking research assistance should consult the library staff at their educational institutions. However, we are pleased to offer editing and proofreading services for all clients, including students.
