Welcome to Encore Music Academy and Recording Studios

Promoting excellence in the fields of music education, performance, and the recording arts.


Liudmila Geyer, a distinguished piano educator based in Bellingham, has been honored with the prestigious Steinway & Sons Top Teacher Award for 2023. Liudmilla also teaches at the Encore Music Academy in Franklin and privately at the Steinert Piano Academy in Newton. 

The Steinway Top Teacher Award is a formal recognition by Steinway & Sons that commends a music educator’s passion, artistry, and dedication to students. This annual award is given to piano teachers for outstanding instruction and leadership in music education, and for demonstrating an unceasing commitment to their students, helping them fulfill their highest potential as musicians and pianists. To be eligible for the Steinway and Sons Top Teacher Award Program, music teachers must teach acoustic piano in an exemplary fashion.

Mrs. Geyer was nominated for the award by M. Steinert & Sons of Newton, MA, the world’s oldest independent Steinway & Sons piano dealer. Brendan Murphy, President of M. Steinert & Sons, said, “We are proud to work with some of the finest piano teachers in the region and pleased that Liudmila has been recognized for her contribution to the regional piano community.”

Founded in 1860 by Morris Steinert, a German immigrant, M. Steinert & Sons is the country’s oldest continuously operating music retailer and the exclusive regional dealer for world-renowned Steinway & Sons pianos, Boston pianos, Essex pianos, and Roland digital pianos. The company has showrooms in Boston and Newton, MA. For additional information, visit www.msteinert.com.
