Mr. G goes over and above to help me pursue my interests. He helped me sing through a difficult time while my voice was changing. He supports me at performances and never fails to make me laugh. Working with him has been a fantastic experience and I feel that I have grown so much.

I have experience with all ages from 4 to 65. Each person is different, but age has nothing to do with someone's desire to learn the piano.

About Joan

I started piano lessons when I was about 6 years old. I graduated from the University of Arizona in Tucson with a BA in Music Education. After moving to San Diego, I spent the next 20 years or so being a wife and mom and raising 3 kids, one of them a special needs child due to a drowning accident.

Piano lessons are strictly for beginners or for students who have little to no training. The first few lessons are dedicated to learning the proper playing technique and practicing several exercises to increase the hand’s coordination, flexibility, and mobility. Once the proper technique has been established we move on to Suzuki method and a series of Etudes catered to the student’s learning needs.

About Alethia

Growing up I was raised in a home full of music. My father, a graduate of the Conservatorio Nacional Superior de Musica (National conservatory of Superior Music) played piano day and night and from there my love for music blossomed. My first experience with music was at the age of 8 when I began to

She is a great instructor! My 14 yr old daughter is a beginner and she has been wonderful with her. She is professional, warm, and always helpful. I don't know much about the violin, but I never have to remind my daughter to practice the music that she is given.
Emmerson (Emme) N.
Alethia is great. She is working with my 7 yr. old daughter as a beginner in violin. She teaches in a way that is fun, appropriate, and respectful. My daughter has already learned so much and looks forward to her lessons with Alethia each week.

"Julie is the BEST!! I took lessons as a child, but had not taken any lessons in over 10 years when I first began lessons with Julie. Almost immediately she was able to help me recall everything I had learned when I was younger. Very knowledgeable and encouraging, makes each lesson a joy! Highly recommended for those who are serious about learning the piano (or anything else I'm sure!)."

"Encore Music Studios has provided our daughter with excellent instruction and guidance for piano and voice. It is obvious that her level of performance and musical knowledge is always advancing at Encore Music Studios. Brad Allen has been our daughters piano teacher or four years and her voice teacher for two years. He is a professional and highly skilled musician, vocalist and teacher. He encourages her to challenge herself to become a better musician and vocalist. Her piano and voice performance skills are continuously improving as a result. She thoroughly enjoys her time at Encore and looks forward to every lesson and recital. The entire staff at Encore is wonderful to the students and is always supportive and proud of each of them. Encore provides quality recital opportunities that give the student an appropriate venue to successfully showcase their musical progress. We can highly recommend Encore Music Studios."

How to Practice Piano Arpeggios | Tips and Exercises

Don't forget about piano arpeggios when you sit down to practice! Here, Helendale, CA teacher Sylvia S. shares her tips for playing and practicing them...   One of the great masters of 20th century piano showmanship was Liberace, otherwise known as the Elvis of piano performance.

How to Write Your Own Music: A Beginner’s Guide to Piano Composition 

After hearing a new piece of music, listeners often ask, “How’d you come up with that?”  However, this question often implies, “Why did you write that?”  The "why" is not answered easily. Creativity comes from a mysterious place.  Neuroscientists have shown that creative thinkers tend to be “right-brained”  processors (and synthesizers) of information. However, the impetus to compose includes a myriad of both internal and external factors, and often, these factors are elu …
