Providing unique, outstanding Music Programs to the Napa Valley


Our Approach

Founder, Marcia BattatNapa Valley Music Associates was founded in 1990 and incorporated as a California non-profit 501(c)(3) tax exempt corporation in 1991. Since then, we have enriched the Napa community and the greater San Francisco Bay Area with unique educational programming and year-round quality music instruction.

History has proven that the majority of great performers of the world were prodigies as youngsters, or children who were fortunate to receive their musical training on a high quality level. In most cases, ALL music students have equal potential. What makes one superior to another is the right exposure, as well as professional training.

The intent of our program is to familiarize children, teens and adults with a wide variety of musical experiences. Music students, either instrumental of vocal, in their private training sessions, may be slow learners due to the lack of exposure to various styles of music. This could, in some cases, affect their musical ear. Therefore, the opportunities we offer in our year round music instruction as well as our MidSummer MusiCamp including ear-training, solfeggi and musicianship, will help develop more productive musicians.

The goal of Napa Valley Music Associates is to focus on developing the fullest artistic potential of each student. The continuation of this highly professional program will realize our students as top performers in our community.
