Testimonials From My Clients
“Elaine is enthusiastic, positive and motivating! She helps her students set realistic and challenging goals, and enables them to accomplish them. Elaine inspires our daughter’s confidence as a pianist and a musician. Thanks Elaine!”

"The Christmas Recital was a Great Experience!!!"
"I have been with Encore Music Studio, and more specifically Elaine, for over 10 years. To have Elaine as my piano teacher was a privilege as well as an honor. Her exceptional teaching skills and creative approach allowed me to develop my musical ability beyond what I imagined.
Her weekly lessons not only taught me piano, but also shined light towards being more conscious of life’s demands. Elaine’s benevolent and light-hearted personality has helped me grow from a shy and conserved musician who would only play to myself, to one who has an increased sense of confidence and the ability to play in front of thousands.
I would endorse Elaine to anyone interested in learning music."
"Elaine is a very knowledgeable instructor who has been able to teach our children to a high standard of excellence. She is very good with children of all ages and abilities. Both of my children are very different learners and Elaine has been able to discover this and teach to their strengths while making them feel confident about learning what they are unsure of.
Elaine is very organized and has a definite plan for each of her students. Several times a year Elaine holds recitals for her students in various locations. These students come to the recitals well-prepared and confident in their performances. I have not only experienced this with my own children, but have seen the performances of the other
students at the recitals.
For students who are taking Royal Conservatory Exams, Elaine prepares them very well and gets them ready for what they are to experience so that this too is non-threatening for them.
I do not hesitate to recommend Elaine for any position teaching music to children and/or adults. I feel that Elaine’s manner of teaching is one which allows each individual to excel and to believe in themselves and their abilities.”
