Encore Music Foundation began as a shared vision of four Strathcona County business owners and entrepreneurs who had a desire to see music education and development become more accessible to all youth in our community and the greater Edmonton area. It is our goal to provide collaborative music education to youth who would otherwise not be able to access music instruction and experiences due to financial constraints. Our group programs are taught by highly educated, experienced individuals who share our passion for music enrichment and overall growth of youth in need. It is our desire to remove financial roadblocks to allow a young person to begin their journey of growth trying new things as they further themselves as a person and possibly, even as a musician!
Encore Music Foundation is an organization run by a professional board with diverse experience including artists, entrepreneurs and business professionals. We pride ourselves in being a fully transparent, non-profit organization where all contributors can wholeheartedly and genuinely believe in what we are doing and know that their generosity is valued and their contributions are in good hands!
Some people think music education is a privilege, but I think it's essential to being human. - Jewel
