Despite neither of Grace Follet's parents being musical, they were very supportive of their children's interest in and study of music. At age fourteen, Follet started studying the Harp, and by fifteen she had graduated from high school. A year later Follet moved to New York and begin her study with Carlos Salzedo; she studied with him until she was twenty-one, but they remained close friends for the remainder of their lives.
In the summer of 1930 Follet began work on a harp instruction course entitled "The Four-Year Course in Harp for Credit in High School" that was published by Lyon and Healy and became widely distributed throughout the United States.
Follet was the editor of "Harp News" from 1955 to 1966 and was elected to Board of Directors of the American Harp Society in 1966, serving as National Vice-President and Secretary.
Follet was an avid teacher and continued to teach until her death in 1986; at age eighty-six she had fifteen students and was an adjunct professor at universities.
Donated by Jeanne Norton in October 2012, she was given the materials from Lucile Jennings who attained them from Grace Follet.
