We serve the communities of Waynesboro, Staunton, Augusta County, Nelson County and Western Albemarle County.

  • both individual and group instruction to students of all ages
  • solo and ensemble performance opportunities
  • scholarships to qualified applicants who demonstrate a financial need
  • a safe and secure environment for learning

We connect to the community by:

  • providing a community big band
  • providing recitals
  • partnering with other organizations to help bring music to young people
  • enrich the lives of students and their families
  • provide guitar lessons at the YMCA
  • prepare music teachers and musicians of the future
  • provide a network for children and adults
  • provide singing birthday-grams and valentines
  • provide fundraising activities that engage the community at large

In the future we want to:

  • connect students to additional performance opportunities
  • connect groups in need of musicians
