Encore's founder, Rebecca Carr, is an accomplished musician with years of education and teaching experience in both voice and piano. With degrees in Music Education, piano, voice and a California teaching credential, she is passionate about making music education accessible to everyone. Her years of building new music programs, teaching in special education, directing musicals, and training students for exams, performances and competitions have taught her how to work through any challenges- be they mental, physical, inspirational or other. She has used that experience to build a team of educators who are effective and inspiring.
What makes Encore unique is that our teachers receive continual education and training in the most effective music education techniques. We pride ourselves in offering instructors who are not only excellent musicians, but also excellent teachers. The owner works with each instructor to track student progress and to collaborate on successful, fun and engaging teaching methods. Our teachers have unified standards and goals for students, with flexibility for the individual students' needs, desires, and ambitions. As a result, Encore offers a collaborative teaching environment where every teacher offers their individual expertise and engaging music and performance instruction to their students.
