Ages 6-8
This class offering at Encore is specifically designed for children who are too young for our more advanced vocal ensembles or private lessons. It is also a perfect stepping stone into the Royal Conservatory Music Development Program for those who are interested in becoming a part of this internationally-acclaimed achievement program. Students will be introduced to the elements of singing — breathing, ear-training, and rhythm. Performances will be held throughout the year.   Wednesdays: 5:00-5:45  OR Thursdays: 4:30-5:15

  Ages 8-13
This boys' vocal ensemble offers the opportunity to sing in a fun and supportive environment. This one-hour class will meet weekly and explore many genres of music including jazz, rock, pop, and a cappella. Opportunities to perform will be available throughout the year. No prior experience required.        Tuesdays: 6:00-7:00

Ages 8-13
This all-female vocal ensemble teaches teamwork while exploring two– and three-part harmony singing. Students will build self-confidence while expanding their knowledge of various musical genres like pop and musical theatre. Opportunities to perform will be available throughout the year. No prior experience required.  Thursdays: 5:30-6:30

 Ages 8-18, By Invitation

This class, held in tandem with our Recording Techniques course, is designed to teach students what it means to work as a studio musician/back-up vocalist. Students learn first-hand about mic-technique, patience, preparedness, harmonies, and production. This two-hour, weekly class requires commitment, home preparation, and flexibility. Students will have opportunities to perform both as a group and as soloists.
Wednesdays 6:00-8:00 

Ages 10 and up
Woodwind Specialist will be coaching this collaborative chamber group. Two years of experience with an instrument is recommended, but not required. Flute, clarinet, oboe, saxophone, and bassoon players are all welcome, and will have opportunities to perform as a group throughout the year. Mondays 7:00-8:00


All abilities, ages, and instruments are welcome for this weekly class with John Salzillo! There are performance opportunities throughout the year, and students learn the art of improvisation and playing in a collaborative environment.
Saturdays: 1:30-3:00
Ages 14 and up
The Songwriter's Workshop is a class designed specifically with the modern songwriter in mind. We will focus on the details of lyric writing, exploring rhyme schemes, literary devices, and lyrical analysis to assist our creation of vivid and descriptive stories.  We will analyze examples of popular song structures and music theory specific to the modern songwriter.

Basic music theory is not a prerequisite nor is the ability to play an instrument, but it is strongly encouraged.  Students will need a lyric writing journal and a device for taking notes. Students will have the opportunity to showcase their existing compositions or songs in progress with the class as we offer constructive critique and analysis in a safe and intimate setting. Tuesdays 7:00-8:00


Ages 13 and up
Instruction in audio recording techniques is the focus of this 90-minute, weekly class. Students learn about audio recording and sound reproduction in tandem with the Encore EnHarmonix recording ensemble. With hands-on work in an active recording studio, students will have opportunities to learn about signal flow, mic placement, sound engineering and editing, and many other aspects of music production.     
  Wednesdays 6:30-8:00
This class introduces students to the fundamentals of reading music, key signatures, time signatures, and other rudimentary concepts. This level of theory is a co-requisite for students of the Royal Conservatory Music Development Program who are studying at Level 5.       Mondays 7:00-7:45

INTERMEDIATE THEORY  (Beginner Theory a prerequisite)

This class builds upon the concepts introduced in Beginner Theory. Students will continue to expand their knowledge of music, including composition and form. Co-requisite with Levels 6 and 7 of the Royal Conservatory Music Development Program.    
Mondays 8:00-8:45

(Intermediate Theory a prerequisite)

This class is for the advanced musician who has already taken Intermediate Theory or AP Theory in school. The class will flesh out the concepts learned in earlier classes, and will lead the student toward the study of Harmony. This class is co-requisite for Level 8 of the Royal Conservatory Music Development Program.

Location, Location, Location! 

As Encore continues to grow and evolve, we are experiencing increased movement between our two facilities.  When we opened our Millis location in May, 2014, at 352 Village St., one very compelling reason for our choice of location was its proximity to our flagship location in Franklin.  Although they may sound very far apart, rest assured that our Millis location is just a short, two-mile, four-minute drive from Franklin and is easily accessible.
