Community Spotlight: Encore Music Academy and Recording Studios

We opened our doors at 3 Bent Street in Franklin in February, 2012, and have become known for our beautiful facilities, our experienced faculty, and our family-friendly culture.

We provide private lessons in all musical disciplines, including voice, piano, guitar and bass, ukulele and mandolin, drums and percussion, as well as most brass, woodwind and stringed instruments.

We also provide avenues for group training and performance with offerings like Boys’ Ensemble, Girls’ Ensemble, a Cappella ensemble, and instrumental ensembles like Brass quintet and GlobeToddlers music and movement classes for small children (ages newborn – 6 y.o.).

Our state-of-the-art audio recording facility is available for projects of all size, including live bands, classical groups, singer-songwriters, corporate and voiceover recording, college and musical theater demos, and vocalist recordings using live musicians or pre-recorded backing tracks. We are also available for recording technique classes or private instruction.
