We’re thrilled to announce open registration for a reinvigorated (and expanded!) Encore University, featuring up to 15 live courses per semester (dependent on registration totals) facilitated by top-notch performer-educators.
Our Ear Training and Sight Singing, Class Voice, and Basic Musicianship courses will help hone your skills as a singer and musician. We’ll get you moving in Ballet for Beginners and Move, Connect, Create! and, if you’re a rock star at heart, you’ll love Rock-n-Roll History. Learn to conduct choral masterworks in Principles of Conducting, and get your pencils ready for Drawing and Sketching for Beginners. Music in Film and Music as Literature courses will inspire fabulous conversations while our Opera and Music Theater history classes will enrich your love of the stage.
There is so much to offer this semester and lots more coming in the next too!
All Encore University classes run Monday through Friday at 9am, 1pm, and 4pm. Can’t make a live class? Don’t worry! Every Encore University class is recorded and will be available on demand.
All registered students will also have access to a weekly Midday Recital Series and Midday Masterclass Series performed by the same incredible musicians and educators supporting our Encore University courses. Our Midday Series will run from 12-1230pm every Wednesday and be available on demand as well.
This expansive Encore University curriculum is available to you, all inclusive for up to 150 individual classes, plus a recital and masterclass series for $185 per semester; which is around $1.25 per class.
