Not All Music Centres Are Created Equal...
GREAT REASONS FOR LEARNING MUSIC AT ENCORE SCHOOL OF MUSIC
YOU WILL LOVE YOUR MUSIC LESSONS - OUR STUDENTS CLEARLY DO
Don’t just take our word about how great it is to learn at Encore. Hear it from the students themselves about why they love learning music with us. Encore has a proven track record of students who have thoroughly enjoyed learning and developing as musicians with us. We have thoroughly enjoyed helping them grow.
YOU WILL HAVE GREAT MUSIC TEACHERS (NOT JUST GREAT MUSICIANS WHO TRY TO TEACH)
There are many fantastic musicians who are not fantastic teachers. Take it from us – we have interviewed many of them. Encore has a rigorous teacher selection process. This doesn’t necessarily happen in other music centres but at Encore, we invest a lot of time into this. We don’t just hire great musicians. We hire great musicians with great personalities and great communication & interpersonal skills. In other words, Encore hires great music teachers, because that’s what our students deserve.
INTEGRATED MUSIC LEARNING FOR YOUR CHILD (1 YEAR TO ADVANCED LEVEL)
You won’t need to shift your child from one music centre to another; we have it all here for you. Bring your child to us from 1 year onwards and we will be delighted to cultivate a love of music in them and help them progress. We will introduce them to musical concepts in our fun, engaging and interactive Encore Tots and Kids classes. When they are ready to pick up a musical instrument, our excellent teachers will help them develop to an advanced level in that instrument.
YOU CAN LEARN A VARIETY OF MUSIC INSTRUMENTS OR JAM WITH OTHERS
We offer classes for a wide variety of music instruments at Encore. Why go from one place to another when you can find it all in the one music school! No more driving around, just go from one lesson to the next. We even try to schedule families to have lessons at around the same time.
PERFORMANCE OPPORTUNITIES TO HONE YOUR PERFORMING SKILLS
Encore holds performance opportunities at the end of the year so that you can hone your performing skills as a musician at the annual Encore Christmas Concert.
“That two minutes of reluctant limelight is priceless at building self-esteem and self-confidence! Thanks, top marks to you and your team!” – Stephanie Timms, parent
YOU CAN ACHIEVE GLOBALLY RECOGNISED MUSIC QUALIFICATIONS
Encore offers our students the opportunity to sit the prestigious Trinity Exams, for those interested. These exams are globally recognised and offer students a good challenge to work towards. Many of Encore’s students have received at least Merit or Distinction. In recent times, we have had multiple Encore students being among the top scoring Trinity exam candidates for the whole of New Zealand.
MAKING YOUR LIFE SWEET & HASSLE FREE
Our music classes are located in places with heaps of available parking spaces so that it’s convenient and hassle-free for you. If a teacher is no longer able to teach, we’ll hire another excellent music teacher for you (say goodbye to the days of having to hunt around for a replacement teacher!). Our friendly team tries our very best to accommodate your schedules to get you a lesson time that would work for you. We try to schedule students in the same family, lessons at the same time or close to each other. We really try our best to help make things easy for you!
SIMPLY BECAUSE ENCORE IS A GREAT COMMUNITY
Encore is a great community of teachers and students. We have a friendly and positive culture. We love people and we value our team and customers. We’d love to welcome you as part of the Encore community too!
