My son is very excited to finally learn to play the piano. Everybody at Encore has been super nice and helpful in getting him started.Mar 2, 2018VerifiedEncore M.'s reply
We're enthused to help enrich his life through music! Thank you for your kind words.
We couldn't ask for a better violin teacher than Rachel! She is extremely knowledgeable, patient and encouraging with our 8 yr old.Aug 25, 2017Verified
Have had a very positive experience with this music studio. I started guitar lessons last fall with Ian Harrah. I am a complete novice - could not be further from being "a natural" - and Ian has been so patient. The owner, Brad, has also been very easy to work with when scheduling my first visit and setting up payments, and he even called just to see how lessons were going. Definitely recommended!May 25, 2017Verified
I ended up declining Encore's services because the quote they gave me on Thumbtack, which I accepted and then scheduled my lessons, was misleading as there was an additional registration fee of $25 not included in the original quote.Mar 1, 2017VerifiedEncore M.'s reply
Lisa, Encore never intends to be misleading. Unfortunately, there is not a way of including the registration fee on the initial quote for music lessons. I am given two choices- quote an hourly rate or total cost. Since music lessons are different than a lot of services offered on Thumbtack in that it includes an ongoing, monthly cost, the way in which Encore has determined to quote its service is by the single lesson price. In some cases, a student will want 30 min. lessons- we quote $27 (the actual value is $27.50, but I am unable to add cents to the quote). Others want 60 min. lessons which we quote at $50/lesson. We always include our website link in each quote and encourage potential clients to look at our reviews, policies, and pricing which includes the information about the registration fee since the number of characters in each quote is limited by Thumbtack. In some cases we waive our registration fee, but in this case, the client did not ask for that. She simply informed us she was no longer interested in taking lessons. I was surprised by the client's response since the investment for 6 months of 30 min. lessons is $660 and it did not seem that the $25 "surprise" would have been significantly prohibitive. Encore also does not quote $0.00 for the initial complimentary lesson we offer everyone through Thumbtack which has a value that exceeds the registration fee.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?$110/month for weekly 30 min. lessons $155/month for weekly 45 min. lessons $200/month for weekly 60 min. lessons
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?We offer a complimentary lesson with your prospective music teacher at a time and place convenient to you. We have you sign up online on our website so that we can enter you into the teacher's studio calendar. I make sure the teacher and you are prepared for that first lesson. The teacher will explain studio policies and develop a rapport with the student. I follow up with you after the lesson to listen to your satisfaction level and to set a regular schedule if you choose to continue.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I hold a BM in Vocal Performance and a BME in Music Education. I have taught K-12 and all ages privately. I feel like everything I have been trained to do is being utilized in the role of music studio director and owner.
