Owned and operated by passionate lifelong musicians, Encore Music offers expert personal training and an extensive collection of instruments for new or veteran musicians looking to tackle artistic ambitions. With instructors trained in piano, drums, guitar, or bass, Encore's in-store lessons help novices strum through the basics of chords and scales. Encore also can offer advanced advice to seasoned shredders who want to break away from their current, Henry Kissinger–fronted Mariah Carey cover band.
Encore's stock of new, used, and vintage guitars, drums, and effects pedals span from axes such as the Greg Bennett St6 N ($99.99) folk-styled small-body guitar to helpful gadgets, including the Shure PG48-XLR microphone with a switch ($39.99).
During the mid-1970s, two touring musicians named Ed Blanton Jr. and Bubba Willis opened the original Encore Music to share their vast knowledge with aspiring tunesmiths and to stock a variety of quality instruments that would rival the inventory of a large franchise store. Though successful, the partners eventually went their separate ways in 1986. Ed Blanton Jr.’s son, Ed Blanton III, revived Encore Music two decades later with the same goals in mind, calling upon his experiences in the East Coast punk-rock scene to motivate young musicians and mohawks to reach for the sky. In its current incarnation, Encore Music now offers music lessons in guitar, bass, piano, and drums, and stocks all the equipment necessary to create an at-home recording studio.
