Bachelor of Music Education
Deborah Martinez is a Kodaly certified music educator and has directed several of our summer camps during the past few years. She has fallen in love with the Orpheus Academy of Music and has happily joined us to teach Musicianship classes and voice lessons.
After earning her Bachelor's of Music Education from Southwest Texas State University, Deborah went on to earn her Kodaly certification and also studied the Orff methodology. She spent 28 years teaching elementary students to love music and to be wonderful musicians.
Though her main instrument was flute, Deborah has a passion for singing, and studied voice both in college and in her continuing education. Her training in both voice and flute have
enabled her to direct award-winning children's choirs throughout her career.
Even in her free time, Deborah's love of music can't be ignored. Her other passion is dance -especially Latin dances such as Salsa and Cha Cha.
