A MESSAGE
FROM OUR OWNER

Whether you’re brand new to music or have some experience, you’re welcome at our studio. It’s all about personal growth and performance with purpose. From the moment you walk through the doors, you’re part of the ME Family for life.

All

Ages

We welcome and encourage students of all generations because we know that age doesn’t define your ability to learn music. Whether you’re seeking lessons for your child, or recently retired and ready to learn that instrument you’ve always wanted to play, we truly believe that there’s never a wrong time to start your musical journey. It’s all about desire!

SOLO

LESSONS

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

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.

Music

Discovery

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.

“I can’t say enough good things about Bill Dittlinger and Music Encounters! It doesn’t matter what I throw at this team, they work with us. They are always flexible with schedules, always encouraging. Always amazing. If you are local and have been wanting ANY music influence in  your child’s (or your own!) life, get ahold of Music Encounters – you won’t be disappointed!”

“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!”

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.
