Lessons for All Ages and Abilities


Individual instruction is the basis for a life long appreciation of music.  Valley Music Academy offers artist quality music instruction at rates 20-25 percent below what others charge for a comparable level of instruction. As a general rule, traditional private lessons are offered beginning at age six and are available to all ages above that.  VMA regularly has private students in their 70's and 80's receiving music lessons.


For students younger than six years of age, VMA offers violin and Musikgarten. Whether you've never played, haven't played in years, or desire to attain a higher level of expertise in your performance, VMA's Private Music Lessons can help you meet your goals.
