MacPhail Center for Music – Austin, opened in the fall of 2015 offering Sing Play Learn with MacPhail® classes and Individual Lessons on 15 instruments and voice.

In September 2020, MacPhail Center for Music in partnership with Austin Public Schools and with support from the Hormel Foundation, opened their new state-of-the-art music education center (pictured above).

The annex includes both individual and shared spaces for MacPhail community music students and Austin Public School students.

Spaces include: six teaching studios, eight practice rooms, a percussion studio, Sing, Play, Learn! with MacPhail® studio, suites for band and choir and an orchestra space. A Music Therapy Studio provides a new resource for the Austin community. A Midi Lab allows for the use of electric music keyboards to play and create. A beautiful recital hall and the Learning Stairs—a feature at the building’s center modeled after MacPhail’s Minneapolis location connecting the MacPhail and Austin Public School spaces—offer a community place to share music and learning with one another.
