We’ve seen it first-hand.
The hard work, dedication, and emotional journey our students go through teaches lifelong lessons in learning new skills and overcoming challenges. Aside from advancing your musical talent, our staff’s goals are to personally develop students by helping them to build confidence and pride through music accomplishments.
Solo lessons allow you to learn at a rate you’re comfortable with, and provide you with in-depth knowledge on the different genres of music. This means that your interests drive your experience and development of your skillset. By working with you one-on-one, your instructor can help you set and reach your personal goals.
Group lessons are fun and inspiring – a place to share passions, ideas, and make new friends. With group lessons, you submerge yourself in a collaborative, team-like environment where learning comes not just from instructors but from your peers as well.
Strings, voice, rhythm… there are many ways to create beautiful sound. If you have a desire to learn music but are not sure which instrument is right for you, our Music Discovery sessions can help. We work alongside you or your child so that you can find the right path for your musical journey.

“It’s not all about the lessons – for 30 minutes each week two amazing teachers speak into my boys’ lives and give them encouragement and build their confidence. This whole business has been built with passion and love.”
“I am so thankful for the staff at Music Encounters – they’re invested in their students. If you haven’t checked out Music Encounters yet – you need to!”
“Thank you Music Encounters and my son’s amazing instructor, John. This staff has really helped my shy boy build confidence and break out of his shell.
“Music Encounters is amazing and worth every penny we pay each week for our daughter’s lessons. Three years ago our daughter couldn’t play a note or read music. She was terrified to start lessons. Now she plays piano at home without us ever having to force her to. Thank you, Music Encounters, for instilling confidence and a love for music in our daughter!”
We offer lessons as a group as well as solo lessons.

I started Music Encounters because of my love for music, and what it has done for me personally throughout my life. I began to offer lessons to children of acquaintances in the community and realized the positive impact it was having on their lives as well. From there, I formed an entire team devoted to offering a positive and encouraging learning atmosphere for any generation.
