Our Teachers

CVMA is a collective of highly talented, educated, and motivated instructors of vocal and instrumental arts. Our teachers manage their own studios, setting fees, policies, and lesson schedules while CVMA provides support and an affordable physical space for lessons.

All our teachers perform professionally, hold degrees or equivalent real-world experience as musicians and educators, and provide high-quality, customized musical education to students of all ages, abilities, and ambitions. Musical styles taught range from folk to classical to contemporary.

Due to the pandemic, some of our teachers only offer online lessons. CVMA requires our teachers to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 if they teach in-person lessons.
