VMA has served the region as a non-profit organization since 2000. Through the generous support of local foundations, Grace Lutheran Church, and community members, we are able to offer tuition at rates 27% lower than comparable programs. The VMA Scholarship Fund is the flagship of VMA's commitment to serving the community by providing access to lessons and classes to children who would not otherwise have the means to participate in high quality music lessons. We provide over 10,000 hours of music education annually, as well as valuable cultural programming through concerts and recitals.

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.
