Welcome to The Music School of the Performing Arts Institute of Virginia, Blacksburg’s international nonprofit community music school dedicated to enriching lives through musical excellence with world-class professional instruction by Artist Faculty for all ages and levels of ability.
Artist Faculty work with students in a nurturing environment, enabling students to recognize, develop and achieve their goals while fostering a lifelong love and respect for the arts, as well as enhancing the cultural development and quality of life in our region.
Students learn far more than the essential elements of music. They learn artistry and a lifetime skill with life lessons about respect, responsibility, perseverance and diligence while developing personal and artistic growth.
I am proud of our students, our quality faculty and of how strongly the community has embraced our mission.
It is my pleasure to invite you to explore our community enriching resource committed to making music an important part of our lives as we continue to serve southwest Virginia and beyond.
