About Virginia Music Adventures
Virginia Music Adventures (VMA) provides comprehensive jazz music instruction combined with performance and travel opportunities to school age musicians. Through local, national, and international community service and travel, VMA encourages its students to develop empathy and respect toward other cultures. VMA helps to preserve jazz by acting as ambassadors to help educate audiences at home and around the world about America’s unique musical art form.
Virginia Music Adventure’s Summer Institute program is focused on teaching students all facets of jazz including: history, theory, improvisation and most of all performance. Students can select class schedules and workshops to participate in, which are taught by VMA’s professional staff and invited professional clinicians. A tour is organized to showcase all that the students have learned in the three week long course in a live setting.
