So far only taken one lesson, but I really enjoyed her energy and enthusiasm, and I loved that her classes have structure and homework and focus! Really looking forward to more lessons :)
Lyle
I decided to write an updated review after roughly a year of lessons. I feel fortunate to have connected with Lena as she has exactly the balance of skills I needed for my musical goals. Having an instructor that has performed live, that understands the realities of being on a stage, and can still give you all of the detailed work needed to improve vocals, songwriting, instrumentation... I really don't think you can go wrong here. You don't have to play live to get the benefit, but finding someone who can guide you through both music and performance was not an easy search. 5/5 rating from me.

Lena is great! Very patient and encouraging. I always look forward to having lessons with her.

About Emily

I have been playing the piano since I was around 5 years old. My parents like to tell a story - they found me as a toddler one day, sitting by my little plastic Fisher Price toy piano, playing and singing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. The rest, as they say, is history - Mom & Dad promptly and proudl

My daughter is stubborn and cannot concentrate on one thing for long time, but somehow Emily finds a way to keep her busy and concentrated for half an hour. I'm learning from Emily how to teach my daughter at home and keep her motivated. I'm sure we will continue the lessons in the fall.
Sara F.
Emily does a great job communicating with my 6 year old daughter at a level she can understand. What I like most about Emily is that she doesn't get stuck on one thing. If she tries an exercise or technique that my daughter doesn't get, she moves onto something else until she finds what works for my daughter. Great teacher!
Angela B.
Emily is an awesome piano teacher! She motivates yet does not intimidate. She helps lay a strong foundation in theory which will help the student as they grow and even play other instruments. She has been very accommodating with scheduling when a conflict occurs. The spring recital this year was a highlight for our family and a confidence booster for our child.

Are you struggling with music production? Do you want to take your music producing to the next level? Are you tired of your mixes sounding flat and boring?
Let me help you!
I have over 8 years of experience producing and performing with Ableton Live (currently using Live 10).
Last year, I graduated from Beat Lab Academy's 6-month certification program, which helped solidify my understanding of Ableton, music theory, mixing, mastering, and many other dimensions of music.
Aside from producing music, I play the drums, guitar, and piano; so if you are interested in learning any of those, I will be more than happy to teach you.
Together, we can cover the ins and out of composing, arranging, mixing, mastering, music theory, and whatever else you would like to learn.

About Devin

I am a music producer, recordist, and pianist with my eyes set on the world. I have over 9 years of experience with Ableton Live! My major was Broadcast and Electronic Communication Arts at San Francisco State University, with a focus in music production, sound design, and field recording. I atten

Love how she teaches the mechanics of learning to sing properly such as breathing correctly and posture right from the start for a beginner. Fantastic instructor!
Tamura H.
Amazing singng instructor

Crystal has increased my daughter’s self-esteem and expressiveness through song. My daughter is now writing her own poetry and song lyrics, as well as being able to combat her once shyness quality. She loves to perform in front of others now and has a confidence level that amazes me, especially now that she is going into those “teen” years. I think a lot of thanks needs to go to Crystal, for assisting my daughter in reaching her current creative level!
Tamura H.
Great piano instructor

Crystal is an amazing piano instructor. She is patient, understanding and dedicated. My daughter has learned so much from her. My daughter’s love for music has increased immensely since learning how to play the piano. This would never have been able to be accomplished without Crystal’s professional and caring teaching style.

For the past 5 years I have been teaching cello to beginner and intermediate students of all ages. I started playing when I was 15 years old, so my experience learning the fundamentals of playing cello are still fresh in my mind. This gives me an edge in my teaching when introducing the instrument to my students. I am a member of the Lone Star Philharmonic Orchestra and hold a Bachelor of Arts in Cello from Texas State University. I can help you learn not only how to play the cello, but can ensure that you have a strong handle of the basic fundamentals, note reading, and music theory as well!

About Gabriel

Hello! I'm Gabriel and I began to play the cello when I was 15 years old after watching a metal band perform with only cellos and no guitars. As I began to learn the cello and play in orchestra, I grew to love classical music! I went to school at Texas State University and received two bachelors de

Gabriel is one of the best instructors ever. He found really interesting music for my daughters to play. He also gave them history about different composers and other background info. He taught them a lot of good techniques to help them play better. Overall, he is really inspiring and my daughters advanced a lot. He always went above and beyond. I can't recommend him enough. My daughters loved having him as their violin teacher as he helped them grow fond of music while playing their violins.

"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."
