Why we give.
A message from our Board Chair - Sharon Popp

We give to provide music lessons taught by highly trained and experienced teaching artists, to kids and adults in libraries and other facilities in underserved communities.

We give to help provide instruments “on loan” for students in these programs. What can be more fun than seeing a four or five year old “try on” a pint size violin or guitar to find the one that is just the right size?

We give to provide scholarships for students to take music lessons at our Sorrento Valley campus whose families are not able to provide them. To see the progress of their musical skills and their growing competence and confidence is worth every penny.

We give so that students in schools that provide little or no access to music, have the opportunity to learn to play an instrument, play in a group or sing in a chorus. Even more fun is to see the parents, siblings and community turn out to support those young musicians at their year end recitals.

We give so that Villa Musica can explore other opportunities to provide music based programs to other populations such as older adults, people with Alzheimer’s and their care givers.

We give so that I can sing in a “no audition required” community chorus with adults who enjoy learning and singing various forms of music and having the opportunity to perform it.

There are a number of ways to give. We have set up a monthly deduction. That way we never forget!
We have also named Villa Musica as a benefactor in our wills.
