Welcome to Encore Music Academy and Recording Studios
Promoting excellence in the fields of music education, performance, and the recording arts.
Dear Valued Encore Families:
We here at Encore Music Academy and Recording Studios have been very closely monitoring the rapidly changing developments globally, nationally, and locally surrounding COVID-19, also known as the coronavirus. With the health and safety of our students, families, faculty, and staff our highest priority, we have made the unprecedented decision to shift all private music lessons to an online platform. The facility at 3 Bent St. will be closed as of today, March 13, for all in-person lessons and classes. We are currently working around the clock to move all private lessons to an online format, and it is our expectation that regularly scheduled lessons can begin to occur online as early as Monday, March 16.
Classes will cease for the interim, but resume once our facility is again open at 3 Bent St.
We are in direct communication with all of our families to ensure a smooth transition to the online format, so we urge everyone to keep a close eye on their email for further instructions. We ask for your patience, flexibility, and understanding as we move forward, and we pledge the same to you.
Online private lessons can offer many benefits to our students. Our philosophy at Encore has always been not only to teach students how to play an instrument, but to teach students the language of music, thereby ensuring that we are developing well-rounded musicians literate in the language of music. This temporary shift to online education will not only permit students to continue with the study of their instrument, it will also open the door for increased creativity between student and instructor as they explore ear-training, rhythm, composition, music theory, and sight-reading concepts.
Please contact us with any questions you may have: (508) 533-7700, ext. 101.
It is our fervent hope that we all can return to routine in the near future, but until then, we wish everyone to stay healthy, stay safe, and stay in touch!!
Thank you for your continued support of Encore.
Lisa Ostrow and Patrick Dreier
