Encore on Keys Programme


The Encore Music approach is a world-class approach to education that was founded by Mark Gibson and Morna Robinson from Australia. Their musical partnership spans more than 25 years of friendship and collaboration. With a shared vision and commitment to music-making and teaching, Mark and Morna continue to research and develop music education resources of the highest quality.

The Encore SMART System integrates all of the essential music learning elements into one complete teaching method. It’s contemporary, vibrant, creative, engaging and comprehensive. It encompasses five teaching strategies or learning approaches in SMART – Snap Shot; Movement, Modelling and Gesture; Aural and Singing; Rhythm and Reading; Technique and Artistry.

Students learn through songs and finger zips that develop keyboard skills on a micro level. There are also repertoire pieces that build on the solo playing skill of the student. Students also learn solfege to build an aural library of melodic patterns, enhancing their by-ear playing skill and allowing them to be able to play by hearing on their own. Accompaniment CDs help to provide an additional learning tool, with great music accompaniment provided.
