Hello! I am so excited that you are considering piano instruction! Let me introduce myself. Hopefully, I will be able to meet with you in person very soon. My name is Debra Heald, and I have been teaching music lessons since 1984. I work with people of all ages and levels

Piano lessons of the past (with a teacher one-on-one with a student) could become boring, or even worse, STRESSFUL for both student and teacher. But at Encore Studio, students can enjoy coming to lessons to make music with their friends and to use the latest music technology. 

The goal is to foster a lifelong love and enjoyment of music, for both kids and adults. This is done by creating a fun atmosphere where students are excited to return each week. Music activities are most meaningful when making music with others.

In addition to me, Mr. Taylor Anson will be joining us again in the fall, and possibly another teacher as well.

Taylor Anson is a sophomore at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and a graduate of Winside High School in Winside Nebraska. Prior to coming to Lincoln, he studied with Dr. Linda Christensen, former professor of piano at Wayne State College.  Taylor has entered many piano competitions, and received Honorable Mention twice in the State Division of the MTNA National Piano Competitions. Taylor also took 2nd place in the 2015 NMTA State Piano Competition.  Taylor has volunteered his time as a pianist for the Wayne Community Theater, the Missoula Children’s Theater, and St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Wayne.  Aside from the piano, Taylor enjoys running, singing, and spending time with friends. Taylor will be teaching two evenings (TBA) and will be a great teacher choice for beginners through early intermediates.

If you turn in off of ‘O’ Street to Wedgewood (at Walgreen’s/Earl May) and follow Wedgewood around the curve, take the first left, which is Glenwood.
