"Soli Encore truly is a revolution in elementary music education" - D. Smith; Encore Parent
Here at Soli Encore, we don’t approach music education simply as a hobby or "extra" curricular activity. Though our academic culture still strives to overcome the biased view of music as a non-essential subject of study, the extensive findings of science, research and even our own US Department of Education have proven music to be the single most influential academic subject that has a measurable positive and cumulative affect on math, language, reading and science. A robust education in music stands uniquely atop all other fields of study in it's cumulative positive affect on students' academically and developmentally. Not only are the immediate effects of music overwhelmingly apparent, but a comprehensive music education has also shown to have long term effects on students' abilities later in adult life to better organize and carry out the responsibilities in their day to day life. Simply put, there is no other subject of study that has ever proven to deliver such a direct and positive impact on the widest variety of disciplines than that of music. (click here to read more). Delivering a comprehensive program of study, exposing students to these powerful influences of music, and ensuring they receive the very best that an education in music has to offer is our top priority. From the development of fine and gross motor skills, complex spatial reasoning skills, math and language competency, inter and intra-personal social development and leadership skills...Soli Encore's curriculum delivers it all.
We have so much in store for our Encore students in the coming semesters. Concerts, recitals, community performances and involvement, master classes and filed trips. Soli Encore is so much more than a class, it is an experience that brings together a harmony in education. But we wouldn't want to do any of it without you and your students!

Official SAT data indicates that students participating in music averaged scores that were higher than non-music students by 60 points on the verbal section and 43 points on the math section. Additionally, SAT scores increased relative to the amount of music instruction. Students taking 4 or more years of music had an average 12% increase over students with only 1 year of music education.
