Music Lessons for all ages!


At Orpheus we have been fortunate to attract some of the finest musicians and teachers in the country, as you can see below.  However, this, in and of itself is not what makes our academy unique.  Rather, it is the atmosphere of collaboration and commitment to continued excellence that truly makes us different.  Teachers at Orpheus gather each week to discuss lesson plans, watch each other teach, prepare for presentations at national conventions and share what they have learned at teacher training events.  This attitude of ongoing learning keeps our teaching fresh and exciting and keeps us motivated to see what new heights our students can achieve each week!
