Our Mission

Transforming lives through deliberate and meaningful experiences in music by developing curriculums that are culturally representative of our communities, collaborations that provide opportunities for all, and performances that inspire a connection to the people around us.


Music Education

We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to study music. Whether that’s in a classroom, in an after-school ensemble, or in a private lesson. Music gives you a voice to express yourself, and provides valuable life lessons and guidance.


Pathways Through Music provides scholarships for private lessons to those in need. Students who take private lessons receive weekly one-on-one instruction from an expert of their choice. They may learn technique, musicality, music theory, and mentorship on being a life-long musician.

Community Engagement

Music provides a great opportunity for community members to get together. With our community ensembles, concerts, and events, we use music to connect to those around us.


Every child deserves the opportunity to express themselves, connect with others, and find joy through music. In my 30 years of teaching music and running music programs in Austin, I have rarely seen a program as thoroughly prepared to help students find their music outlet as Pathways Through Music. This program is so important because it allows every student, regardless of background, to experience this incredible joy.

― Klondike Steadman, Orpheus Academy of Music, Executive Director

As a teacher and administrator in high school settings, I have witnessed the impact that music has on broadening cultural awareness and deepening empathy for all students. I wholeheartedly support the goals of Pathways Through Music to help our students learn to appreciate diversity in expression with unity in spirit.

― Stacie Steinke, Shorecrest Preparatory School, Teacher
