Greg, Thanks for being a valued Encore customer! Abby has really enjoyed lessons with you.
Guitar Lessons (for adults)
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, 2017VerifiedEncore Music Studios's reply
Michelle, thanks for your thoughtful words and vote of confidence in the familial feeling we strive to maintain in a professional environment for music lessons!
Guitar Lessons (for children or teenagers)
My daughter is taking guitar lessons from Ian and having a great experience. I think she is getting good and patient instruction and a reasonable but still somewhat challenging amount of homework. Shortly after beginning, she was encouraged to do a recital, and I initially thought it was too early, but it ended up being a really good and motivating event. We do lessons at the Dublin location and are overall very satisfied.Dec 9, 2016VerifiedEncore Music Studios's reply
Thanks for the 5-star review Sara. So glad to have Will for violin lessons with Abby as well!
Violin Lessons (for children or teenagers)
We have had a great experience at Encore so far. Brad was very proactive in helping to connect us with a teacher when we first moved to Columbus. Our violin teacher Sean is fun and encouraging and really knows his stuff! My boys love the group lessons as well.Sep 28, 2016VerifiedEncore Music Studios's reply
Thanks Jeanine for your generous review. We miss you guys!

- 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.
