Celebrating 16 Years Of Teaching Music Lessons

COVID-19 Protocols

Dear Napa School of Music Students and Families, 

          We are excited to announce that we will be returning to in-person lessons the week of June 15, 2020. We wish to thank everyone for their patience and loyalty during these months of shelter in place. We would like to let you know our plans for the future and the steps to insure everyone’s safety.

          Based on local and state health officials and Governor Newsom’s phase 2 plan for the state of California and Napa County to re-open businesses such as the Napa School of Music, the in-person lessons are resuming the week of June 15th. We, of course, are concerned for everyone’s health and well-being. Rest assured we have amped up facility cleaning schedules to include sanitizing of all high touch areas after each student, plenty of hand sanitizer and soap available for use as well as daily temperatures taken of all staff and all entering. We will have signage and reminder guidelines posted. The kitchen area will be closed to students/families. The rest rooms will be only be used one person at a time. We will continue to practice social distancing in the studios and following the recommended protocols to include these listed below. Please inform your student as well to insure everyone’s safety.

About Our Instructors

All of our carefully chosen instructors are friendly, experienced and educated musicians with years of teaching and performing experience. Most have a B.A. in music or in some cases a M.A. or a Ph.D.
These teaching professionals are qualified to teach any level of ability from complete beginners to advanced professionals. Many of our teachers are also qualified to teach a number of instruments, theory and performance skills.
To ensure that the Napa School of Music is a safe learning environment for our students, we require our employees, including both teachers and desk staff, to have all the necessary background checks through the Department of Justice.

About Our Lessons

We welcome beginners and adults as well as more advanced students.
Private lessons are offered on many popular instruments and voice. We have found that private one-on-one instruction allows students to progress at their own pace and gain the best understanding of musical techniques.
Student can start private lessons as young as 5 years old and can start private lessons any time of the year or month so there’s no need to wait to get started.
We teach all styles of music including classical, rock, jazz, flamenco, pop, metal and more. We offer instruction on most instruments including bass (electric and upright), cello, clarinet, drums, flute, guitar, harmonica, keyboards, piano, saxophone, steel guitar, trombone, tuba, ukulele, upright bass, viola, violin, and voice too!
