Encore Studio

Classes for teens and adults (usually not together, but sometimes it's a great mix!).

Group instruction for adults or teens who don't have time to the piano at home as much. Low stress class emphasizing basic note reading, chord understanding, and learning to play basic music, including pop styles and rock standards (all in good time, of course!).

A theory lab before or after class is recommended but not required:
Technology/Theory Lab Time
The technology in the studio is intended to provide students with additional opportunities to build and reinforce various musicianship skills. Also, students may play their assigned music with MIDI disks and a digital piano for accurate practice. Notation software is available for those who participate in composition activities. During this time, students may also work on theory worksheets or books, since the teacher will be nearby to answer questions. Students will be scheduled to use the Lab tools before or after their lesson.  Technology/Lab time is totally optional for adult recreational students, but many students will find it boosts their success in class!
