About Orpheus Academy

Founded in 2003, Orpheus Academy of Music has been providing exceptional music
lessons and group classes on guitar, piano, violin and voice to adults and children of all
ages. Our programs help children learn the value of music in a creative, positive and
nurturing atmosphere that inspires students to reach their fullest potential. Students
learn to understand the importance of focus and dedication to practice while pursuing
their individual musical interests and expressing themselves through music.
We have years of experience in guiding people within North Austin along their musical
journey and our students’ achievements such as performing at Carnegie Hall, releasing
CD’s, and performing all over Austin have been recognized in The Austin American Statesman, KVUE , Fox 7
, Austin Family , West Austin News, Norwalk HourNews Times Online​ and many more.
Austin is an amazing city to study music, whether you just want to have fun or pursue
music to the highest levels. As the “Live Music Capitol of the World” Austin provides a
terrific source of teachers and performance venues for students and we pride ourselves
on finding the best of both for our students. In October of 2018 over 500 students and
25 faculty will perform at the One World Theatre  to
celebrate our 15th anniversary.
We offer music lessons for today’s generation and strive to make sure that your learning
experience is customized to your preferences. Learn to play your favorite songs on the
guitar, join an ensemble, write your own music or study the classics – the choice is
yours! Our faculty make it a priority to know every student on a personal level so they
can understand their needs and make the musical journey rewarding and unique to
Orpheus Academy of Music was founded by Klondike Steadman and his wife Wendy
Kuo. Orpheus is a leader in music curricula and our Adventures Through Sound
methods are presented regularly at National Conferences and used around the country.
Our approach is to build on each students’ strengths through a Sound-to-Symbol
approach, using a combination the Kodaly and Dalcroze
Eurythmics, as well as traditional
methodology to teaching so that every student can have a joyful and effective
experience learning music.
