Changing Lives...Making Music

Valley Music Academy is a private not-for-profit music school serving the cities of Waynesboro and Staunton, and the counties of Augusta, Nelson, western Albemarle, northern Rockbridge and southern Rockingham.  Our mission is to open the door to music by providing quality music education for anyone, regardless of age, who wishes to learn. VMA provides private and group instruction to students of all ages, with the youngest students being just a few months old, to adult students in their 80's and above.  Our organization also provides low to no cost music lessons to qualified young musicians through age 18 whose families could not otherwise afford them. 

Valley Music Academy provides quality private and groupmusic education for anyone who wishes to learn, regardless of age, gender, race, creed, disability, sex or financial resources, while demonstrating that music is a powerful means of encouraging cooperation, celebrating diversity, building self esteem, and cultivating a sense of nonviolence and social justice.
