Why Amphion Music? In ancient Greek mythology, Amphion was one of the sons of Zeus. While building the fortifications to the city of Thebes, Amphion played so beautifully the lyre which had been given to him by Hermes that the stones moved into place of their own accord. We hope you find all the building blocks in these musical projects move into place with similar ease and that you – and your students, too – will be able to equal Amphion’s musical prowess in a very short time!
