In support of CDC recommendations for social distancing and our larger community’s efforts to end the spread of COVID-19, we will be suspending in-person music lessons at this time. However, for those of you who would like to keep a sense of normalcy for yourselves and/or your children and provide a much-needed and healthy musical distraction from what is going on in our world, Encore Music Studio would like to offer you music lessons online using FaceTime, Zoom or Skype. Please let us know if you are interested in this option and we will work with you to set up lessons at a time that fits your schedule. New students can recieve your introductory lesson for FREE. Thank you and I wish you and yours good health and happiness while we all tackle the challenges this virus has presented. Click for More News

“My son, Alex, took drum lessons with Chris from elementary school through high school. Chris is an amazingly patient teacher and thought ahead to everything Alex would need to know for jazz band, marching band and concert band. His insight into different musical styles always astounded me. My son’s confidence in his playing and his skill-level increased so much over the years. Highly recommended!”
– Diana Torres

"Chris Eaton has gone out of his way to learn about my son and his interests so when my son was introduced to guitar, he was able to learn and play music that he already enjoys listening to. He is a gifted musician but also highly skilled at teaching. He works well with families and was always flexible with his schedule. I highly recommend Encore Music Studio!"
– Jennifer Novak


“My son has been having percussion lessons with Mr. Eaton, and he has been learning a lot. My son has autism, and Mr. Eaton works so well with him; he is very patient. My son looks forward to his lessons and is always excited to get there. Mr. Eaton is very professional and wonderful music teacher.”
– Judy-Ann Rosti

"Chris Eaton has the perfect blend of patience and musical knowledge to teach anyone that desires to play an instrument. With Chris’s help now both of my kids have a well balanced knowledge on multiple instruments. Chris has the expertise to bring each student through the process at the correct pace. My whole family has this as a gift for a lifetime."
