From Guitar Lessons to Encores at Scottsdale Music Academy

Best Music Instruction in PhoenixMany of you know that Scottsdale Music Academy is the leading local resource for guitar lessons in Scottsdale, AZ. In fact, our hundreds of satisfied students over the years can attest to the success of our teaching styles, our playing methods, our class sessions and individual lessons.

But what also sets our company apart from other teaching schools in our area is the dedication and service that we provide above and beyond just teaching chords, scales, and strumming. Over the years, we have developed several extra programs and activities geared toward our intermediate students who are ready to start playing out live in their musical groups.

Encore at Scottsdale Music Academy

One of these examples is our Encore music program. Once our instructors have provided students with individual lessons, group sessions, and video training, then it’s time to move our music students into advanced areas, like our band coaching program or our Encore program. Our Encore program is our way of teaching students about areas that are important to musicians but aren’t always taught in ‘learning to play guitar’ classes.


Some of the areas that students learn about in Encore include:

  • How to book shows, and maybe even get paid for playing
  • Marketing your music, both online and with fans at music shows
  • Creating your band’s essence, through art, video or music
  • Engaging your fans on social media to like, follow and share
  • Learning how to shop effectively for musical instruments
  • Coaching for auditions and live performances
  • and much more.


We like to think of Encore as the real addition to the musical equation that lifts up certain musicians to next levels. Face it, in today’s streaming musical environment, talent on a particular instrument will only get you so far. But having knowledge of how to commercialize your songs, market your music and play the social media game is what you can learn in our Encore program.
