Napa's only non-profit Conservatory of Music providing professional music training and more!

Napa Valley Music Associates is the only 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit Conservatory of Music serving the youth and adults of Napa and the greater North Bay region with high quality professional year-round music training. Since the founding in 1990 and incorporation in 1991 by Marcia Battat we have created partnerships with professional musicians, other non-profit music groups and schools to create a more effective platform for students to emerge as the best and most confident musicians in the Napa Valley.

"It is not enough to teach children to interpret music with their fingers . . . the important thing is that the child should learn to feel music not only with his ear but with his whole being."

Emile Jaques-Dalcroze
