Music at Odyssey School

River Guerguerian is Odyssey School’s Music Director, overseeing classes for PreK-12th grade students and teaching small group classes weekly. River gave a presentation titled On Listening in July, 2015. In it, River explores what it means to listen — physically, emotionally, spiritually and how sound enriches our lives or distract us from it. Watch here!

Odyssey School hosts Asheville Rhythm, which creates the annual Asheville Percussion Festival and offers weekly percussion classes for the community – adults as well as kids – with River on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

Odyssey School also has in residence Free Planet Radio, which is “the shared vision of three multi-instrumentalists exploring the infinite and seamless relationships between musical cultures through the universal language of sound.”

Odyssey School is an independent, non-profit school with a focus on whole child, emotionally intelligent, personalized curriculum for students in PreK-12.

Our mission is to prepare students, families, and educators to lead the 21st century with an authentic sense of self.   More about us...
