Our Drive and Values

The Orange Park School of Music is a family owned and operated small business in The Orange Park Community. We opened our doors in 2007 with one teacher, owner Todd Hansen, and have grown to include many more teachers with backgrounds in different instruments. As teachers, we focus on self-expression and creativity with all our students. In addition to thoroughly covering the basic rudiments of music, we ask our students to put something of themselves into the music they create. As a result, music lessons are not just another responsibility in life, they are an outlet for self-expression and a source of enjoyment. We believe that everyone is born with some degree of musical ability. As music educators, it is our goal to help students find their musical ability and nurture it.

We've been attending OPSM for several months and really love the down to earth vibe. My son is learning piano from Miss. Lynn and he is really learning to love creating music as well as learning how to play. Happy customers indeed 🙂

My son Johnathan took lessons at the school after a recommendation from Dr. Jeff Turner. He had basic skills but after the lessons his skill level tremendously changed and his confidence skyrocketed, I recommend the school to anyone who’s interested in improving their musical skills.

The staff is AMAZING! They seem more like family in my opinion. My daughter has been taking piano lessons with Ms. Janie and I am so impressed with how much progress she's made in less than a year! My daughter is very shy and didn't have much confidence in her piano skills but now she's playing in piano recitals and even got a solo! I wouldn't recommend any other place over Orange Park School of Music!!

Just a Note of praise for my Piano Teacher Ms. Lynn Larson. If you’re thinking of taking up piano or thinking of picking back up where you left off Lynn is great. She is part of the staff of the Orange Park School of Music. One of the best people you will ever spend any time with. They have a great school and are all very friendly and personable there. A wonderful place to learn music. When I first started going there I could not read much less play the piano.It is a wonder to me that I am playing full songs all the way thru now. Lynn and the orange park school of music have made my learning experience the best.

The thing I like about OPSM is Todd because he is very kind and helpful. I also like how he gives me extra time and he's kind of funny. Lastly, I love band because it's fun and I get to see Nicholas. That's why I like OPSM.

I thought I was doing pretty well trying to teach myself how to play guitar by downloading tabs off of the internet. When I finally realized how time consuming this was, and that a lot of the tabs were wrong, I decided to give OPSM a try. Now I can honestly say I have learned more in six months than I did in six years of trying to do it myself. My teacher is a true professional and I highly recommend OPSM to everyone.

Nicholas

My name is Nicholas Thomas and I have a dream to be a famous drummer. I'm 11 years old and Mr. Todd who teaches at Orange Park School of Music is making that dream come true. He spends extra time to help me become the famous drummer I want to be.

I want to thank you both for the opportunity you've given Jessica at the Orange Park School of Music. We have seen (heard) a major improvement in her piano playing. Ms. Lynn is a fabulous teacher! She has taught Jessica a nice variety of music that matches Jessica's personality.  Thank you all.

Fred

I've gone to a couple of different places for lessons, but the Orange Park School of Music is the first place where I feel I'm truly learning to play. This past year I have gotten much better technically as well as with my understanding of theory.

Music Tips

Guitars

Play Hard: It seems like a “no-brainer” concept.  The act of actually pushing on the strings harder and holding the chords longer will strengthen your fingers and create muscle memory faster.  This action will ensure each note is hit with strong intent and will help prevent strings from rising above the frets.
