To participate in music making is one of the great joys of the human condition. Children and adults alike are enriched by the pleasure that comes from developing musical skills that culminate in personal artistic expression. I know that the Orpheus Academy has created a nurturing, healthy, and joyous place to learn, one in which the commitment to quality is paired with a deep love of music and of people.
— Dr. Robert Duke, Professor of Music and Human Learning, UT-Austin
The foundation we lay during the first years should serve growing musicians for the rest of their musical life, leading happily into major repertoire. I am glad to see that Orpheus Music Academy meets this challenge very successfully!
–Professor Sophia Gilmson, UT-Austin
“Having worked with Orpheus students and faculty for nearly a decade I can say that their level of instruction is truly excellent. The teachers are highly qualified and the many students I have had in my classes not only have great musical skills, but also a deep love of music. I highly recommend them to anyone interested in lessons.”
–Kay Greenhaw, Doss Music Teacher
“Orpheus Music Academy provides wonderful opportunities for my students to apply and perfect skills they have learned in music lessons at Hill. Orpheus students always shine in my classroom – they exude joy for creating music and confidence when sharing their knowledge and love of music with their peers. It has been a delight to work with Mr. Klondike as he leads the academy in reaching out to the music programs in our neighborhood public schools. Orpheus Music Academy is a treasure in our Northwest Austin community!”
