Encore Music & Performing Arts

We Create Music Programs Tailored to Your School!

At Encore our goal is to create music programs that make each student’s musical journey not only unforgettably positive but also rewarding and inspiring, because we believe that a student who is excited about the prospect of playing well can overcome any obstacle. Whether you desire a solid music education class, show choir, orchestra, band or a rock band experience, we are the happy (and effective) place to build your music program! We have a team of Music Educators with classroom teaching experience in a variety of music and performing arts specialties. We currently provide K-5 music programs at Carver & Valentine Elementary Schools in the San Marino Unified School District, as well as 5th Grade Band  and 5th Grade Orchestra.  During the summer we add Musical Theater, Show Choir, Modern Band and Group Guitar classes to  our school schedule. At Almansor Academy we provide K-12 music education for students with disabilities that struggle with learning and/or emotional challenges. We have also provide preschool piano and music programs at St. Edmunds Nursery School, Beyond the Classroom, San Marino Montessori, La Casita Verde and The Family Room.

K-12 Music Education

Having a variety of teachers means we can bring a variety of programs to your school! We write engaging and fun standards based lessons and performances for the general music classroom as well as for specialties. Our classes involve movement, singing, instruments, and cross- curricular connections that culminate in a fun performance. We tailor our programs for each school- if you can dream it we can build it!


Our band and orchestra programs take students with little to no experience and provide them with a foundation of excellence as we prepare them to perform, with the hopes to instill a desire and skill  to pursue band and orchestra in middle and high school.




From acting and improv to musicals, we give students the confidence and skills to bring a story to life. From summer camp fun to school theater, audition prep courses and show choir, our teachers have fun building shows (and skills) with every student to bring out their natural talent and interest.

The Family room

Encore Music has created a custom music program for The Family Room that our parents and children love! I really appreciate the level of organization and attention to detail that they provide. The director and teachers have all been great- we are now going on 4 successful years working together!

I want to properly thank you for a stellar year of music instruction for our students.  I thank my lucky stars to have met you this my final year in the district.  It has been a dream to work with you both.  I truly hope that this is the beginning of a long and mutually beneficial relationship. I have had so many parents rave about the performances! It was a beautifully conceived, designed, and executed program start to finish. What a treasury of knowledge you are! You know what is right for the age group and voices.  I don't have the correct terminology, but I could see the musical design of the numbers and how they artfully showcased the music standards.

I just want to say you are awesome and have helped us tremendously. I was initially hesitant having {my son} join the ensemble, even with his aide things can be difficult, but you have made everything so much easier and I can’t thank you enough. 
Thank you for taking care of {my son} and helping him to his class today; he could not find his aide and you helped him out. We appreciate it! 

We are excited that he can be among his classmates learning the saxophone!
