Why Encore?

Encore is a highly enthusiastic group of talented and qualified educators who share a passion for the arts and teaching. We believe and take pride in our positive and caring atmosphere which promotes creativity and learning in both the performing and visual arts.

We challenge our students by affording them the opportunity to participate in multiple competitions, exams, and concerts throughout the school year, all catered to their individual proficiency level.

Our first location opened on October 19th, 2010. On July 18th, 2016, Encore opened our second location in the South Miami area where we not only offer music lessons, but also dance, musical theater, and visual arts.

Call us to schedule a try out class today and join our growing family. We would love to hear from you!

Definitely the Best Music & Arts Academy in Miami! Coming from another school in CG with a very high teacher rotation and a "cold" atmosphere, a friend of mine recommended Encore Academy of the arts to me. This academy has exceptional, experienced teachers who love to teach and foster the talent of their students. The owner Debora, who is truly one of the most passionate and dedicated women I ever met, is the heart of this academy: light-hearted, funny, energetic, always in a good mood and striving for perfection. She gives so much LOVE and you feel being part of the family. She is also my piano teacher - I am 39 and started to play piano around 4,5 yrs ago! :) They have several recitals and concerts per year in big locations here in Miami and everything is very professional and well organized. The new location in South Miami is spacious and modern, lots of rooms w pianos (even a grand piano) and other instruments, two ballet halls with special ballet floor and of course a band room. The academy covers literally EVERYTHING in arts, from learning instruments like piano, guitar, violin, drums, singing classes or musical production, sound recording, band etc to ballet, flamenco, cuban dance and more as well as visual arts painting, drawing, mummy and me courses and much much more.... Parking is right in front or behind of the building (always available). They also have a well equipped waiting room for parents w a TV and toys and homework desks for siblings. I highly recommend this place!

Encore is the very best place where you can take your child to learn about arts and complement his of her education. They offer instruction in a wide range of art foms including music, dance, plastic arts, etc. Their staff is superb in their dedication to the children's education amazing. It is very common to see children who don't want to leave after their lessons have ended, they have a very good time there while learning a lot.

A one stop shop for the arts. My kids play different instruments so it is very convenient to have all their lessons in one place. You're treated like family. Highly recommend Encore for anyone looking to sign up their kids for music, dance, and art classes...and it's for adults too!!
